There is hope
Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed by life or an emergent situation and could use support to move through it. You might have experienced a traumatic event and you know it is still wreaking havoc with your well-being and relationships. It could be that you are just plain not happy and you are unsure as to why.
I can help.
I work with people who want life to be better for them but aren't sure where to begin. By bringing warmth and reflection, we can re-wire old thoughts and behaviors which aren't serving you and help you live an authentic and self compassionate life.
You may be considering couples/marriage counseling after much pain and distress in your relationship. You may be fighting, feeling alone, or like you lost your best friend. It can be scary to look at your partner and not remember feeling close and yet longing for that very closeness. Understanding ourselves in relationship can be extremely challenging when so much of our family of origin and past relationship history is at play.
In our work together I primarily draw on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). EFT is all about easing the escalation of the same conflicts and creating (or sometimes re-creating) a safe bond with your beloved. It involves identifying negative relationship cycles so that you can once again feel safe, seen, soothed and secure in your intimate relationship. In addition, we look at concepts linked to Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) such as states of fight or flight when distressed and we begin to learn to pay attention to and listen to what our our bodies are telling us.
