Couples therapy, helps couples - married or not- understand and resolve conflict and help improve their relationship. Couples therapy gives couples the tools to compromise, negotiate differences and argue in a healthier way. It's the way your differences are communicated that changes the outcome.
In any partnership, each person brings their ideas, values, beliefs, and personal history into the relationship. If you don't match your partner in these areas, it doesn't mean you are bound to be in conflict. Instead, I will help you find the mutual understanding and connections that attracted you to each other, while helping you to communicate more effectively.
I work with individuals of all ages. Children with and without their caregivers, teenagers (we might leave the parents in the lobby) and adults.
Counseling for all couples gay and straight helping with dating difficulties,premarital, sex, communication, affairs and other conflict.
There are so many things that happen in life to cause traumatic experiences. I have tools to help children or adults get through it and feel stronger.
As adults we feel like we should have everything all figured out, but somehow we don't. And there are so many reasons to struggle, whether it's self-esteem, anxiety, depression, work issues, anger management, finding meaning, or everyday stress, I can help you find a new perspective.
A theoretically based approach that builds on the normal communication and learning processes of children. Play can be part of a cure for a child, when used intentionally. I utilize play therapy to help children express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts and feelings. In play therapy toys are like the child's words and play is the child's language. I can teach new behaviors and social/emotional skills through play, where verbal instruction may not be effective.
