I believe healthy, satisfying relationships are crucial for overall
wellness and quality of life. Primary relationships influence all aspects of our lives
and it takes effort to keep them working well. I love seeing change on a system level
and knowing that can have a big impact.
I love that helping couples usually means helping the whole
family and can have a beneficial ripple effect for generations. I find working with
couples to be dynamic, exciting and interesting so it's a great way to spend my
couples on the brink of divorce (discernment counseling),
couples feeling the challenges of transitions such as bringing home a baby, moving
into teen years and empty nest. Parenting coaching is a big aspect of my couples
work as is working with couples who are having challenges with communicating
and managing conflict effectively, feeling like they both count equally and are
appreciated/valued by the other and those couples that are having challenges with
feeling like they have each other's back consistently. Additional issues include
infidelity, challenges with family of origin/in-laws, sexual dysfunction.
Clients can either make a request via email or phone. Please
note that I am part time and although I have a few openings, I tend to run nearly
100% full most of the time. Clients should make sure to provide enough
information so that I can assess, at least in part, goodness of fit for their issues and
how to reach them to follow up on request. I invite clients to look over my website
for more information as well.
