How I Can Help

Here you are again.  You hate how you feel and these feelings are so familiar.  The upset in your stomach knowing you need to open yourself up to your spouse.  Or that you're tired of feeling taken advantage of and you know you could fix it if only you could just say what's on your mind.  You feel worn out by the difficulties you have in your relationships.

You've felt this way before and you've reacted in the same ways that have led you to the same destination over and over again.

We are who we are because of patterns.  Sometimes you are so consumed by your fear of conflict or confrontation that you avoid our feelings altogether.  Or you can't stop yourself from saying something you know will hurt your partner.  Patterns like this aren't inherently bad nor do they make us bad people.  They may have worked for us in the past or they've stopped working.  Or maybe they have never worked.

You might not be aware of your own patterns and that is part of our work together.  No matter what it is, want a different outcome.

You want peace.  You want to go to work or parent your children or enjoy your hobbies without getting steamrolled by the uncomfortable emotions you feel.

Recognizing patterns and understanding how they have developed may help in creating new ones.

Whether you find you have the same argument with your spouse, lose interest in your relationships, or repeatedly avoid confrontation with a loved one, we can work together to help you find your voice and feel more confident in expressing yourself.

I am accepting new clients for individual psychotherapy, however, I do not currently see couples.  If you'd like to know why, please check out this blog post:

Why I Don’t See Couples

You might find that individual therapy would be a better fit for you at this time.
