Marriage and Couples Counseling
Relationships can be both enlivening and incredibly challenging. When they go well, they can make the whole world seem bright and full of limitless possibilities. But when they are strained or combative, they can leave both partners feeling hopeless. When working with couples, I begin by breaking the cycle of negativity, refocus both partners back on themselves, helping them to see how their words, thoughts, and actions may or may not be contributing to the health of the relationship. Then, with both partners in agreement, I help you in creating new structures to help the relationship to be stronger, more loving, and more resilient, especially in times of crisis. In my experience, and especially in the beginning, when working with couples, it is essential that I work with both partners separately at times and together at times.
Individual Relationship Counseling
If you are single and longing to be in a relationship, or have just ended a relationship and are desiring to learn from what happened, or are in a relationship and are desiring to work on your own to better the relationship, I can help. Through such exercises as establishing your criteria for an ideal partner, to re-patterning the less than skillful family dynamic you grew up in, to advice and practices as to how to go about finding someone to share your life with, there are innumerable things we can do as individuals in order to improve our relationships with others.
Family and Parenting
As a father of two, I get it: Having a family can be both nourishing and challenging. Running a house, balancing career, social, personal and family time, and making it all work financially can seem like an impossible puzzle. Furthermore, each child comes into this world with their own temperament, gifts, and challenges, requiring whole new levels of emotional, financial, and time commitment. For the parents, the children can be a tremendous sources of inspiration, maturation, motivation, and love at times. And, when you or you child isn't feeling well, or there seems to be some long-term, recurring problem with the child, you may feel powerless. As with all relationships, I help struggling parents to examine the source of any fears, obligations, or expectations they may have about their children, give voice to such factors and separate out the limiting beliefs of each one of the parents, create new, loving, and empowering outlooks and ways of being, and create structures and practices to promote long term-growth and wellbeing for all the family members.
