I offer individual, couples, and group work. In addition to my work
with ACMIs, I assist people with problems such as relationship issues,
depression and anxiety, disability and chronic illness, and separation
and bereavement. I conduct ACMI groups
and interactive groups where people work on contact and communication.
As these issues move towards being resolved, clients gain greater
access to their strengths and talents.
Depending on your needs, we can focus on specific problems and
symptoms, and/or we can work to identify and alter assumptions and
attitudes you formed as a child, which may be impeding your ability to
shape your life in satisfying ways.
I believe that people need to feel both safe and curious in
order to do this work. We'll collaborate to find the balance and pacing
that allow you to feel optimally supported and challenged. I offer
consistency, clear boundaries, and a deep understanding of the
developmental issues that must be resolved in order for people to feel
content as adults.
When I work with
couples, I pay particular attention to establishing an environment
in which both partners feel equally supported in expressing their
feelings and needs. We'll pinpoint snags in the communication
process and I'll help you to learn ways to communicate that are more
likely to be received and understood by each partner. We'll also
explore what patterns from childhood relationships you may be
replaying with each other. This will help each of you free yourself
from casting yourself and your partner in old roles.
