Do you often feel triggered by something your partner does or says? Do you struggle to regularly feel connected to your partner on a deep level, and when you do it’s short-lived? Are misunderstandings common? Likely, you want so much to feel understood and supported by your partner, and want to be able to do the same for them – you still love each other! But sometimes disconnecting is just easier.
What would it be like to have a relationship that’s filled with more peace and joy than anxiety and hurt? Is it possible to rediscover love, confidence, and safety in your relationship?
I enjoy helping couples slow down, recognize the cycles that hurt them, discover where they came from, and understand how and why they end up disconnected and in pain. Then, we work as a team to identify painful triggers, learn how to handle them, and heal old wounds. We redesign healthy and effective patterns of communication and practice new techniques to take home. My goal is to get couples to the point where they feel, “we can handle anything that comes up!”
I am passionate about respectful communication and relationships, and creating a safe space where clients can love their authentic selves. I believe in the healing potential of connection, with the world around us and the world within us. I have worked with children and adolescents for a number of years, and particularly enjoy working with couples and parent/child dyads. I trust the truth in every client’s experience, and use a combination of solutions-focused and emotionally-focused approaches.
I welcome clients of all beliefs, identities, hopes, and hurts. We all get stuck, and we all deserve love.
