“You cannot solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
We have many different types of relationships.
In order to be successful, every relationship requires work.
Many of us aren’t taught how to cultivate the relationships we want so we default to arguing (often about repetitive issues), retreating into silence, passive aggression, or looking outside our relationship to get our needs met.
Our struggles don’t have to last forever; we can break free from the burden of our maladaptive patterns.
I work with individuals who experience symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictive behaviors and thought patterns, those who notice chronic negative relationship patterns that need to change, and people who experience a lack of fulfillment in some aspect of their lives.
I help my clients find out what’s going wrong, why they are stuck in certain patterns, and together we find helpful strategies to abate maladaptive patterns to achieve and maintain the lives they want.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy is a psychodynamic protocol used to treat the symptoms of trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, fears and phobias, addiction, panic disorder, chronic pain, and more.
When indicated, this is a technique I like to use with my clients. To find out more about it click here. To review the research and see FAQs, visit this website: www.emdr.com.
Help with Sexuality and Intimacy
Many of my clients are looking for help expressing their sexuality and deepening intimacy.
I see those who have a desire to share deep parts of themselves, but experience internal barriers and find themselves locked in patterns that keep their relationships limited.
Together, we explore issues, address suffering, and find useful strategies to support wholehearted living.
Why do we do we make the choices we make? How can we reduce suffering and improve quality of living? How can we identify what is really causing our distress? How can we adapt to life changes and maintain our connection to ourselves and loved ones?
All of these questions can be answered through psychotherapy. I combine psychotherapy, mindfulness, and insight-oriented meditation tools in my working with clients.
