HOW I HELP COUPLES, INDIVIDUALS, & PARENTS…

For over a decade, I have been providing therapy to diverse populations. I have successfully helped individuals, couples and families experience healing through therapeutic services such as Individual Therapy, Couples Therapy, Support Groups, Teaching Mindfulness Techniques, and the use of Guided Imagery.

In our work together, attention is brought to what is arising for each client or couple in the present moment. This allows for us to address issues as they are happening, making it easier to identify current thoughts, feelings and somatic experiences. This can offer a deeper awareness of thought patterns, communication dynamics, and common trigger or reaction patterns. As we work together to help expand your awareness of your internal landscape you will begin to find more space around how you choose to respond to what life brings your way. I believe that we all have within us the ability to grow and heal as we tend to old wounds. It has been an honor for me to help my clients heal these old wounds, let go of old stories that no longer serve them and witness previously hidden parts of their true core-self emerge as they live a more joyful and fulfilled life. My clients have described me as having a warm and grounded presence while inviting insightful and creative ways to work through challenging issues.

The Move to Harmony:  San Francisco Couples Therapists Speak How to Repair After a Fight.

It's Inevitable. All couples will argue and push each other’s buttons at times. In fact, partnerships often bring up our core wounds and needs, bringing to the surface that which most needs attention. This happens in many forms, but it is most obvious when we are triggered, such as when our partner’s behaviors activate a sensitive issue within us. A couples counselor can help you figure out the anatomy of how a fight can escalate by deconstructing your feelings and needs. In helping you understand and look at when you get triggered and how that trigger may potentially be causing a ripple trigger effect with your partner, you can stop the negative cycle and more effectively communicate. Our highly specialized couples therapists can help you and your partner increased consciousness and awareness of the dynamics underlying your disagreements; in deepening your mutual understanding, your relationship will become less stressful, more harmonious and even exciting.  Your differences will serve as a bookmark, a place in yourself that is calling for healing.
