In COUPLES THERAPY, I will help you and your partner identify the conflict issues within your relationship. I will help you decide what changes are needed in the relationship and in the behavior of each partner, in order for both of you to feel satisfied with the relationship. Couples therapy involves learning how to communicate more effectively, and how to listen more closely. In couples therapy I am often more proactive and direct helping the couple gain awareness of their "disconnect" by pointing out observed behaviors and putting words to body language, eye rolling, etc. The way couple and I develop rapport is by being honest from the start and the couple feeling heard and able to talk freely in a safe environment.
LOSS AND GRIEF THERAPY One thing we are all going to face in life is LOSS. Often people think loss is only by death but everyday losses such as health, divorce, loss of a job, finances, retirement, empty nest syndrome, youth, aging parents, family and friends moving away, etc, can be difficult losses to cope with or obtain some perspective to help us move through life's changes. We are such a society of attainment and we are not taught how to talk about loss. These past economic years have been an example of how many of us suffered different losses and how we had to learn to navigate our lives in new ways. Going through the loss can be detrimental to your physical and emotional well being, we need support and to learn coping skills.
