What you can expect of me
My goal as a therapist is to help you create more harmonious and satisfying relationships and to communicate more effectively within them. Working with me, you will learn skills that promote a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and those around you, and help increase feelings of closeness and connection. You will learn to navigate difficult conversations skillfully and to manage the often unruly emotions that accompany them. I help you in defining a vision for your life or relationship and in translating that vision into action.
As a therapist, I am active, empathic, and compassionate and listen with a non-judgmental ear. Yet, I am unafraid to throw the penalty flag when you get stuck in ineffective behaviors, attitudes, or choices.
I view therapy as a form of "adult education" with me as your relationship coach. I guide and encourage you as you replace ineffective behaviors and patterns with more effective ones, and as you discover the changes and choices that will help you feel better and live more fully.
