Are you struggling in your relationships with family, and/or friends or at work?
Healthy relationships form a critical part of our personal happiness and contentment with our lives. What I know about relationships whether it be a couple, friends, co-workers, or family is that every relationship has an ebb and flow -an awareness of a an attachment flowing along the spectrum from a deep intimacy towards the other end at times where a distancing brings feelings of distress.
These difficulties may appear in any type of relationship and manifest in many ways. Some of these include feeling isolated due to a longing to be heard and understood; lingering anger and resentment due to difficulties with productive communication and problem solving skills; and an inability or uneasiness to become close and share intimacy with others.
All relationships change with time. It is normal to encounter lapses in our relationships that make us feel stuck and unhappy, and that we are unable to resolve by ourselves. What I also know is that if you want to be happier, it can be very helpful to get some input from an unbiased third party - someone who doesn't have an agenda for you -other than your happiness.
So what I can do is work with couples, friends, and families, and co-workers who have gotten off the track, who want to feel more respected, admired and cherished by their mates, friends, family, and or co-workers.
I help people to heal from their loss(es) and experiences of betrayal; repair ruptured trust; develop loving intimate relationships; replace shame with self-acceptance; and communicate authentically, skillfully and kindly. I shine a light where there is darkness to uncover and connect with the depth of your own unique subjective experiences about life.
I believe that the keys to healing include non-judgment, forgiveness, self-responsibility, a healthily sense of humor, and lastly a healthy partnership with a committed listener such as a therapist.
I will encourage you towards increased intimacy, engagement, and mastery in your life. I will teach you communication skills and conflict resolution that will bring about a more meaningful relationship - one where there is trust to be your authentic self. I teach simple strategies to having the relationship you really want.
Together we will honor new understandings about your relationship to yourself and your world to allow the best of you to shine.
Inspiration:" We need to give to each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, and to exercise our diversity. We need to give others space so that we may both receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing and inclusion."
