It is human nature to believe that we will be more COMFORTABLE if we stick with what we KNOW. But what if what we KNOW and what is COMFORTABLE are the very things standing between you and what you want? And what if we are unaware of how much better “comfortable” COULD actually feel?
Therapy is a place for curiosity and associated revelations. An effective relationship with your therapist is the mirror that enables you to observe and learn about your own thoughts, beliefs, and behavior patterns. Over time and with trust, this relationship helps you discern which of these elements have served you and/or kept you safe, versus what may be actually working against your obtaining the quality of life and sense of wellbeing you desire.
My passion is LISTENING to you share YOUR story, YOUR experience, YOUR hopes and dreams, and seeking alongside you the answer to how you could live a life that’s both comfortable AND healthy. Let's look together at what the change possibilities might look like….what are the associated benefits? Would the discomfort experienced in making the changes actually be worth it?
My holistic approach to treatment focuses not only on your thoughts, feelings, past, and present experiences, but incorporates a heightened awareness of how your environments, conscious routines, and unconscious habits are impacting your growth. Exploration of the rhythms of your day, and all the ways you nourish (or don’t nourish) your life, is fundamental to this puzzle. We will seek to find the roots of the “the stuckness,” the determinants of a "going through the motions" type existence, and your unique strategy for breaking out of these cycles.
I deeply enjoy working with individuals and couples. I am trained and experienced in a range of clinical modalities, enabling me to create variable and person centered approaches to individual treatment. I enthusiastically employ my training in the Gottman Couples Therapy Model as our frame for couples work.
I would love the opportunity to support you in this work by offering clinical tools that promote a healthier and more rewarding belief system, and further the evidence for you that it’s never too late to fall in love with your life!
