Couples counseling helps one understand the manner in which they are relating that feels disruptive, disconnected or unfulfilling. Together we positively work with those interior states so as to foster greater awareness of the authentic self and engender some healing connections we cultivate honest, loving and caring relationships with our partner which then get transferred into all other relationships.
The journey from adolescence to adulthood can be brought with moments of extreme happiness, laughter and success; in combination with moments of extreme difficulty, anger and sadness. Often a full range of these intense emotions seem to take place every 24 hours. Other times this period in our lives can be dominated by singular feelings of depression, anxiety or despair.
Individual therapy begins with a discussion about your unique concerns, goals, background, experiences and personality. As we continue working together, we aim to facilitate greater awareness about the relationship between past and present thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We will collaborate with you to create an individualized treatment plan and adjust it as we continue to work together.
Families commonly experience challenges as they pass from one life stage to the next: new couples establishing norms, the arrival of children (or recognizing voluntary or involuntary childlessness), adolescent challenges to authority, second marriages and the empty nest.
