Practice Description: I assist individuals, couples, & families in building their strengths and abilities to manage life challenges – whatever they may be – torn relationships, family issues, parenting, feeling overwhelmed with work or life-in-general, time management, dealing with loss or unanticipated twists, turns and trials. Sometimes families fall apart and need help rebuilding healthy relationships. Whatever the need, I help my clients find practical and down to earth ways to address their specific life challenge. Client goals may include emotional healing, finding understanding, improved communication, clarity of vision, developing more loving relationships or achieving mindfulness in living.

Building resilience in the face of tragedy is a focus of interest. Of particular interest are those who have been betrayed; sexual addiction; disability and chronic illness. These, and other similar challenges can be especially stressful on families and relationships. It can be difficult to make sense out of the senseless. I assist client as they reshape and restructure their lives.

Additional Comments: Healing from Betrayal & Broken Relationships
Betrayal is traumatic. Learning to overcome emotional pain, to trust and to love again requires the restructuring of our views and believes. The focus of this group is on healing from betrayal caused by partners’ infidelity and/or addictions. This therapy group series will use creative exercises and reflection to explore betrayal and move past its seductive grasp.
