WHY WORK WITH ME?  RELATIONSHIP THERAPY LIGHTS ME UP!

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,

  cared about

~Toxic conflict?

~Shaming, blaming or reactivity?

~Withdrawing?

~Not feeling valued?

~Feeling like you don't matter?

~Growing apart?

~Little affection?

~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? 

I use highly-effective & evidence

based relationship therapy

modalities including:

*EFT - Emotionally Focused

Therapy - has a proven success

rate of over 70%.  Over 90% of

couples report their relationship

was "significantly improved." 

*PACT - Psychobiological

Approach to Couples Therapy

*NVC - Non-Violent

Communication

 

YOUR RELATIONSHIPS SHOULD BE A 

REFUGE FROM LIFE'S CHALLENGES

NOT AN ADDED SOURCE

OF STRUGGLE

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.
