I specialize in working with couples and individuals who want more rewarding relationships. With couples, if you and your partner are committed to one another and willing to work hard, I can help you break the negative patterns causing your distress and create new patterns enabling you to be more loving, compassionate, responsive and emotionally engaged with one another. I'm a practitioner of Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT), which has been validated through decades of research studies as one of the most successful approaches for creating lasting improvement in relationships. Couples therapy works best and fastest when both partners participate, but I also work individually when one partner is unavailable or unsure about staying in the relationship.
I also work with single individuals on obstacles to their relationship success such as low self confidence, family of origin issues , emotional problems and grief or loss. Together we seek to clarify your feelings and beliefs and understand how these make perfect sense given your past. You develop compassion for yourself and appreciation for having coped as best you could. As your self awareness and acceptance increase so does your capacity for life changing personal transformation.
Please contact me if you're interested in working with a relationship therapist. I begin with a brief telephone screening. If I think that I can help you, the next step is for us to meet for a free therapy session to decide whether we're a good fit for working together. I look forward to hearing from you.
