‘We can’t communicate.’ “He/she never listens to me.’ ‘We don’t know how to communicate.’ Sound familiar? No doubt. I hear these statements all the time. Communication issues are the #1 complaint of couples. But, all is not lost.
- I provide the skills and strategies to have more effective communication and
- And help you reconnect – emotionally, physically, mentally – in a way that makes you feel safe while building a stronger foundation of trust with one another. The changes that occur, change the ‘dance’ or process with you and your partner or spouse – which is a good thing!
Understanding your attachment style, communication style, and addressing the underlying issues – are three key ingredients to helping couples – you! – get to a better and healthier place.
Been there, done that. I have traversed down the ‘D’ path, and I know it’s one the most difficult, challenging, and emotionally driven life transitions that you will ever experience.
However, I am here to tell you that despite where you are, eventually you will experience the silver lining of being on the other side of your divorce. I help individuals and couples pull up their sleeves, navigate the emotional roller coaster, ups and downs, and work through all your challenges you are experiencing while going through your divorce.
I have been called a ‘straight shooter’, honest, open, and authentic. I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), an active, collaborative, and skills-based modality and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), an approach that will help you focus on your preferred future by setting small, achievable goals.
SFT asks the Miracle Question (LOVE it!) which get YOU thinking about what you really want your life to look like, how you would like it to be. Using SFT will moves you from being problem-focused to solution-focused. It works! Its thought provoking, creates insight, tangible, and makes people feel successful in ways they never imagined! You will experience a sense of accomplishment and feel productive.
I work with couples who are unmarried/coupled up, gay, and straight. We address all the thorny issues — strife, infidelity (and how to recover and thrive), addictions (pornography, alcohol, drugs, eating, shopping), and sexual intimacy.
Together, we do just that.
