Life can be difficult. Especially when we feel disconnected from the people that we should feel the closest to. Sometimes difficult life circumstances stand in the way of us experiencing better connection. Sometimes it can feel like being stuck in a cycle that just continues to pull us back in no matter how hard we try to break free. Sometimes we are in the cycle so long that it feels helpless and hopeless.
I work with individuals and couples on relationship dynamics, creating insight and awareness of why we do the things we do. Our work together can help people break from unhelpful habits and build up inner strength to create freedom to be vulnerable. Because it is when we are vulnerable that we can be truly known and understood.
I have a desire to help people whether they are struggling with difficult life experiences, relationships or want to make a life change. People often already know what they want but may need help finding their voice or making it louder. We can work together to examine relationships and family systems, how past experiences can affect current relationships, and how actions can trigger reactions.
