Three things differentiate
living from the soul versus
living from the ego only. They
are: the ability to sense and
learn new ways, the tenacity
to ride a rough road, and the
patience to learn deep love
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Psychotherapy for Individuals, Couples, and Families
I collaborate with clients to find an approach that fits the presenting concern, and to decide who will be participating in the therapy process.
Sometimes the focus is individual:
resolving painful memories in early relationships
developing healthy coping strategies
addressing anxiety or depression
working through major decisions
I use a wide variety of strategies to assist couples seeking to rekindle, strengthen, or heal their partnerships, addressing concerns about:
communication and satisfying emotional connection
sexual intimacy and sexual difficulties
fidelity and healthy boundaries
blended family conflicts
I have found that it is possible to do very effective work on a couple relationship even when one partner is not willing to participate in counselling.
I provide family therapy, usually beginning with parents, to address:
relationships with adult children
Tending to family relationships is a way to deeply support our own wellness and also provide for the long-term health and happiness of our children, whatever their age.
