COUPLES THERAPY AND RELATIONSHIP STRENGTHENING 

Couples therapy is my area of unique expertise for almost two decades.  I have worked with some of the toughest issues facing couples today including recovering from infidelity, reclaiming trust and communication, breaking toxic patterns, rekindling emotional closeness and desire, adapting to blended family issues, helping a partner with an untreated history of trauma, managing extended family issues and setting boundaries and more. I also have extensive experience working with LGBT couples and their unique issues.  To paraphrase the internationally renown therapist Esther Perel, "The quality of your relationships will affect the quality of you life." Additionally I provide tools, exercises and workshops for couples who would simply like to strengthen an already stable relationship.  Many of these resources come from my training and certification with the famed Gottman Institute .  I utilize many of Dr. John Gottman's exercises, utilizing expressive therapies throughout our regular sessions.   Please see my events tab for any upcoming workshops for couples. 

INDIVIDUALS

Individual work is crucial to change and self growth.  Do you feel like you are stuck in a life pattern that you don't like? Feel frustrated or overwhelmed? Life is full of challenges that can leave you feeling anxious, stressed and even afraid. We all face these difficulties at different times in our lives. Recognizing that we are in a tough spot and reaching out for help is the first step to navigating these situations more effectively. I will help look at your situation from a variety of perspectives and help you make the right underlying changes to restructure and change the course of your life, and transform it to one that is more gratifying.

WOMENS WILDERNESS RETREATS

Planning and facilitating women's wilderness retreats is a passion that I have been slowly building on for several years.  In these retreats women are able to experience camping, outdoor cooking, hiking, kayaking, participating in therapeutic painting, fibers work, poetry, singing and creating sisterhood.  Absolutely no experience in any of these realms are necessary. More information can be provided upon request.  Please see the events tab for any upcoming events.

MEN SPECIFIC ISSUES IN SESSIONS

Working with men and the issues that they encounter has become and important part of my practice.   I attempt to create a space where they can voice their concerns and feel respected and honored as they work to transform areas of their lives.  Men have come to  my practice to discuss a number of issues. Many men have experienced abuse as young boys and have had no one to talk to. Boys are rarely encouraged to make deep friendships which often results in loneliness in adulthood. Men have rich inner lives and they want to have meaningful, emotionally connected sex with their partners and sometimes require assistance in finding that path.  Stressors related to family expectations, adapting to the transition of family life, breaking away from family patterns, finding happiness in relationships, coping with past traumas are just some of the few issues affecting men today. 

WOMEN  SPECIFIC ISSUES IN SESSIONS 

There are issues that can be unique to each gender.  Post partum depression, adapting to children, mother-daughter conflicts, life after divorce, reclaiming yourself after children, finding your voice and breaking way from toxic family of origin patterns are just a few.  Sometimes healing traumas and working on other areas of difficulty that may be affecting your life and your relationships can be best done individually.  LGBT and identity specific issues among biologically born women or individuals who identify with this gender are also areas welcome in my practice.

FAMILY THERAPY SESSIONS

As a family therapist, and as a spouse and parent, I understand that family dynamics can be incredibly rewarding as well as incredibly intense.  You may be experiencing difficulty with an adolescent, blended family issues, difficulty with in-laws or other extended family members and are feeling completely exasperated.  My training as a family therapist is specifically designed to reveal and address underlying family patterns and interactions and help to create shifts in the family system to make seemingly stressful problems more solvable.  Regardless of whether you are a family of ten, or a single parent with one or several children, or a traditional family model or a same sex parent family model, I can help to improve your family's quality of life and interpersonal relationships.
