WHY WORK WITH ME? RELATIONSHIP THERAPY LIGHTS ME UP!
I bring a rare and optimal blend of wisdom, compassion, education and a treasure chest of skills and tools to my work with people in challenging relationships . . . . more
HEAT OF THE MOMENT SUPPORT - Get the critical help you need RIGHT when you're in trouble! Doing this can accelerate change - You learn how to handle conflict when you're in the thick of it rather than reflecting on it in a scheduled session.
DO THESE CHALLENGES
SOUND FAMILIAR? :
~Not feeling heard, understood,
~Shaming, blaming or reactivity?
~Not feeling valued?
~Feeling like you don't matter?
~Mistrust or dishonesty?
~Feeling unsafe, scared or lonely?
~Can't count on each other?
~Feeling dropped or disregarded?
~Feeling forgotten or let down?
~Same arguments over & over?
~Longing for help?

MY WORK WITH CHILDREN: I choose to work with children WITH at least one parent, though individual sessions with children and/or parents can happen in conjunction with parent/child sessions. This is because what's happening with a child is almost always related to the relationship s/he has with the parent AND it is highly likely that the parent could benefit from learning new skills to utilize with the child.
