FAMILIES, CHILDREN, & ADOLESCENTS
I work with families, children, and adolescents both individually or together struggling with a variety issues including self-esteem, anxiety, depression, family conflict, and school issues. I can also help with learning and developmental disabilities such as ADHD.
Our most intimate relationship often awakens fears and ways of relating which can lead to confusion and unproductive conflict. I help couples learn more effective ways to communicate to help reduce conflict and improve emotional and physical intimacy. Learning new patterns of communication in a safe, non-judgmental environment can lead to greater understanding of yourself and and your partner, and bring you back to the foundation of love and mutual support.
Being carefully and thoughtfully listened to opens up new ways of approaching problems. Together we explore and understand various aspects of yourself including the meaning of your feelings, thoughts, dreams, memories and interpersonal interactions. I listen in a way that can access multiple levels of meaning. Our inner world and early experience color the way we perceive current relationships including the relationship with the therapist. Understanding issues as they come up in the therapy relationship, as well as in your outside life, leads to greater self awareness and more satisfying ways of relating.
