• INDIVIDUAL THERAPY •
Even though I have seen the evidence countless times, it still amazes me that people can sit down with a therapist for one hour per week, talk about their lives, feel heard and understood - and that it can make such a difference. The power of psychotherapy is really awe inspiring.
Individual therapy even has the potential to improve relationships: if one person is able to shift on their own, then others will shift in response.
Talking things through with a caring and trained therapist can help you develop insight, feel less alone, and simply enable you to feel better. I will be someone you can trust and I will help guide you through the difficult parts. I will help you make changes.
• COUPLES AND FAMILY THERAPY •
Humans are innately social creatures - we crave companionship and connectedness. These relationships not only provide the joy and satisfaction and comfort in our lives, they help shape who we are. Therefore when we are struggling in our relationships, with a partner, with a parent, with a sibling, with anyone important to us - it can be overwhelming, stressful, and heartbreaking.
Imagine how much more powerful the therapy process would be if it was not just the therapist who could understand you, but your loved ones as well.
In my experience, couples and family therapy, although at times messier, ultimately provides faster results because there is so much more to work with when your loved ones are in the room. Having your loved ones present enables us to hear and understand their perspective as well as yours and we address the problems head on.
I can help you identify and escape the troublesome patterns of interaction that trap you. I can help you understand each other and help you empathize with one another. I can help you get along. We will work together to make sense of things and heal past hurts. We will work together to strengthen the bond between you. I can help you support and enjoy one another and guide you towards the relationships for which you long. I can understand your perspective as well as your loved one's and I will enable conversations to play out differently than they do at home.
