Part of being in relationship includes the inevitable challenges that are inherent in relating to others. In fact, our individual, relational and even spiritual growth comes from facing, directly, difficult situations.

When problem situations remain unresolved, hearts harden, warm feelings turn cool, and minds close to the loved one. Ideally, couples take constructive steps toward solving their unfinished business sooner, rather than later.

Couples counseling offers opportunities for identifying, and clearing up, misunderstandings leading to new and mutual understandings; emotional and practical support ;and skill-building to help couples transcend, seemingly, inmpossible problems.

Couples and individuals who come to my practice seek relief from a part of their lives that is difficult or painful. Relational ruts or ruptures serve as barriers to closeness, teamwork. physical intimacy, and happiness. 

New solutions can emerge with  time and (a safe) space. Expanding self-awareness, enhancing communication and relational skills support the healing process. Often, when my clients put their new skills into practice, they report an experience where authenticity in relating is both enlivening and more satisfying.

Marriage tends to be, particularly, susceptible to disruption during major life changes or milestones. A new baby, illness, major loss, 'empty nest,' even a child's wedding can trigger the stark awareness that life as we know it, has changed.

Midlife is widely known as a time where unsettled feelings and disquieting thoughts arise. A sense of urgency can arise accompanied by a need to re-evaluate what is most important now. 

Paying attention to feelings of anger, loneliness, uncertainty, or anxiety can provide valuable information. signaling a new frontier and area for discovery with its potential for transformation. Unheeded, such feelings may remain in the dark, interfering with making wise choices and achieving a sense of well-being.

For over 20 years I've worked with individuals and couples to help clients 1) heal old emotional wounds and cultivate lively, healthy and more vital relationships; 2) re-connect and re-ignite the flame and reconnect with each other after the kids are gone.to explore what they want for their future.

I believe in the process of therapeutic dialogue in service of increasing self-awareness, emotional healing, deeper understandings, intimacy and promoting greater vitality. My theoretical framework is holistic,  based on gestalt therapy theory and a developmental model of growth and change. My clinical approach includes a focus in the here and now within a collaborative working relationship, and with a profound respect for each person's experience.

Recent research in the field of neuroscience informs my work, as well. Technology such as the fMRI shows us that the brain is 'plastic.' That is, it is capable of new learning and growth long into and through adulthood. 

I am, also, interested in the beneficial effects of mindfulness on one's experience of daily living, stress, anxiety, and physical health. My personal, as well as professional experience with meditation, 'mindfulness' and contemplative psychology provides me with direct experience evidence for wjat is reported in the scientific literaature.

Persons who choose my services tend to be individuals motivated to make positive change in their lives. In the course of therapy, clients have told me 'I like who I'm becoming;'  I am feeling more loving toward my partner;'  'we couldn't have made it through this without all the skills we've learned,' 

Throughout my 25 years of practice it has been my privilege to be invited into the lives of so many people who want to live their lives more courageously, with vitality, joy, and fulfillment. As when you hire any professional it’s important that you feel respected, heard and understood. Take that first step and call me at 610.525.4988.
