In individual therapy, we will work together one-on-one to help you clearly understand your current challenges and, as a team, identify tools you can use in your daily life to feel better! I will help you to gain insight into patterns and behaviors that aren't serving you in order to get un-stuck and live the life you want to have. Equally as important is identifying your strengths and working on self-acceptance. I believe that we must model for others how to treat us!
Living harmoniously with the people we love has the potential to add great value (and time!) to our lives, while discord can add stress and seriously impact our day-to-day happiness. Couples/family therapy is a way to come together in a safe, supportive environment to feel heard and understood. Many people find that they are able to say things to a partner or family member in the presence of a supportive therapist that they otherwise would not feel comfortable saying. My role is to provide a supportive, objective presence in order to bring equilibrium and understanding to the couple or family and provide insight and tools that they can take home and apply to their daily lives.
As a provider of the Gottman Bringing Baby Home workshop, I specialize in working with new or expecting couples. In the transition to parenthood, even the best relationships can become strained due to lack of sleep, financial concerns, adjusting to a new level of intimacy, and a completely disrupted routine. Couples therapy can help by opening lines of communication and gaining tools for managing your new reality.
Group therapy can be a great option for those who want to connect with others who are going through similar challenges. Sharing our experiences with others can be very empowering because we can be both teacher and student, so-to-speak. I currently offer a New Moms' Process Group on Monday evenings at 7 p.m. Contact me for details.
