We relate with
ourselves, with others and with the world in general. We’re complicated. Sometimes
the voices in our head encourage growth and creativity, sometimes the voices and old patterns inhibit our ability to have
the life we want. We may have conflicting impulses or contradictory motives. Interpersonal relating can be confusing and mysterious. How
do relationships deepen? You might want deeper connections, or better boundaries. Sometimes
we want both with the same person.
You might be facing a personal or spiritual
crisis, asking existential questions about meaning and purpose. You might feel lost, disconnected from
your path. These areas of interest need airtime, too. Group, Relationship and Individual Therapy address these
multi-layered concerns and facilitate an increased capacity to experience and tolerate the ebbs and flows of real life. A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has
a song. -- Maya Angelou

Individual Therapy: We
talk together at scheduled times. We talk about everything. The idea here is that if
we study your feelings, thoughts and impulses, we can understand what the dynamics are that impinge upon you, leading to less
emotional stagnation and greater psychological mobility.
Therapy: This is where we have some fun, so to speak.
We have the opportunity to observe in vivo how others impact you and how you impact others. This
can lead to a better relationship with yourself, your lover, your friends, and even your boss.
So you’re in a relationship, but you’re not sure what to do with it. Established or
new, relationships bring out our best and worst selves. Through exploring the perspectives and layers of
reality, we begin to unwind the tangle that couples can find themselves in. We build your relating and
communication skills through specific behaviors, establishing a reinforced foundation to rest your relationship upon.
Gay, strait, bi, trans or poly – all love relationships have ups and downs and sometimes steep learning curves.
I also work with people who are not romantically involved such
as siblings, friends, and coworkers. If you’re interested in working through issues, gaining clarity
about your expectations and roles, and creating a more functional relationship, this may be a useful option for you.
