The best way out is always through.
— Robert Frost

If your important relationships are sad, stressful, stormy, or just plain suck, you’re my ideal client.

As humans, we’re relational creatures.

We’re just wired that way.  There’s no denying that we are happiest when our important relationships are going well. Whether the difficulty you’re experiencing is with your sweetheart, spouse/partner, ex, parent, child, sibling, friend, frenemy, boss, co-worker, the dude at the DMV, or the person you see in the mirror, I’ll help you find your way to happier relationships.

How?

You and I work collaboratively to identify and resolve the old stories and reactive patterns that interfere with your ability to create peaceful, meaningful, and joyful relationships. Any or all of them. We focus on strengths and solutions, we experiment with a variety of tools and skills until we find what works best for you, we create your relational MacGyver toolbox, and we practice using the tools and skills both in session and out in the world.

What is necessary is the willingness and commitment to keep practicing.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a mindful transformation of our previous thoughts, feelings, and behaviors about the offense and toward the offender.  Releasing the deep hurts and justifiable anger we feel allows us to experience relief and offers both the psychic room and the peace of mind to truly heal.

Healing

Healing

The stories we tell ourselves can negatively impact healing. Just as the placebo effect illustrates the power of belief to improve outcomes, unhealthy beliefs based in guilt, shame, blame, and lack contribute to declining health and well-being. We are literally making ourselves sick with our stories.
