Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My aim is to assist clients in being happier, healthier, and stronger as they encounter the hurdles that different phases of life can bring. Whether those hurdles are internal, interpersonal or professional, most clients walk out of sessions feeling understood, really seen, smarter about themselves and their situation, and with real tools to positively affect their lives. Often interpersonal relationships prove the most challenging over time, triggering defensive/protective reactions that usually make things worse. Assisting couples through precarious times is a specialty, including addressing communication breakdowns, increasing closeness, reducing animosity, or dealing with jealousy and affairs. In addition, I provide parenting and co-parenting consultation and support to help parents better understand children's behavior and needs, as well as in supporting parents in being the kind of parents they want to be. I am familiar with a variety of therapeutic approaches and can be agile when needed to make sure clients feel both supported, and challenged. Often these approaches can lead to identifying lifelong patterns, developing awareness about these patterns, and ultimately experiencing the ability to choose rather than simply react. I like to work both in the present here-and-now where we can impact behavior, and explore the foundational experiences of the past in order to make lasting changes and establish new ways of dealing with people and problems.

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
