What does your ideal life look like? A life where you know who you are, who you want to be, and what stands in the way? My job as a therapist is to help you figure all of those things out. I will help you create your own goals, and shift from a place of focus on the problems to focusing our work towards the solutions. Together, we will spotlight the action you can take, and celebrate the little wins along the way, to mold your life into the one you want to be living.
Much of our work together will likely revolve around healing your inner child and any previous trauma you may have experienced and carry with you. These wounds often inform the stories that we tell ourselves and, in turn, have a significant impact on us and our relationships. From there, I’ll help you learn actionable ways to find healing. While boundaries and communication are huge buzz words right now, they really are a great place to start.
Whether your relationship is up against one big issue (infidelity, intimacy, jealousy, parenting) or what feels like a million small ones (who is emptying the dishwasher), you want to figure it out together. You might even just want to add tools to your toolbox for when it comes to approaching sticky subjects! Therapy can help teach you how to talk in order to get your needs met within your relationship.
I’ll work with you as a couple to isolate exactly what is going wrong. Once we have that insight, we can dig deeper into why. We’ll look into what wounds might need healing within the relationship in order to shift towards new patterns. We’ll find actionable ways to heal those wounds, through your trust in each other and your changes as a partnership.
I’ll help you as a couple to develop a secure connection, reduce self-and-other-blame, regain intimacy, and teach you how to better communicate their needs and feelings.
Get to know your partner on a deeper level, whether you are a committed couple moving in for the very first time, getting ready for marriage, or just want to prepare to be together for a very long time.
Learn communication skills and how to effectively solve potential conflict.
It’s important to know how to handle any issues that may come up, to be prepared to communicate effectively to get both partners’ needs met and for each partner to feel truly known and heard.
Make sure that you and your partner are on the same page with aligned values and matched visions of the future, whatever that might look like for you.
It's my job to help you figure out what the next steps are! If you think we might be a good fit, reach out. I offer a free consultation where we can get to know each other better; you can ask any questions you might have and decide if the fit is right. We'll take it together from there.
