Individual, couples and relationship counseling
I offer counseling for individuals, couples, and adult families. I work from an attachment and family systems perspective, often drawing from the research of interpersonal neurobiology and emotion focused therapy. I see counseling as a place to collaboratively explore patterns and roles that were once helpful or necessary, but no longer serve us, and as a place to practice new ways of being and connecting in the present moment. I also see counseling as a place to grow understanding and acceptance of our authentic selves.
Using our counseling relationship as a foundation from which to grow and heal, together we can explore patterns of interaction and ways of being, deepen understanding and acceptance of underlying emotions and needs, and help you gain freedom in choosing how to be in the world and with those you love.
Areas of focus include:
- Relational work
- Improving relationships between adults and their parents or siblings
- Older adults
- Couples and individuals transitioning into retirement
- General stress
- Increasing assertiveness and valuing one’s needs and emotions
I specialize in adults. However, I am happy to provide referrals to counselors who work with youth 18 and under if needed.
