Relationship Counseling for Individuals, Adolescents, Couples, and Families
I am a licensed teacher turned family therapist who specializes in counseling individuals, adolescents, couples, and families who are ready toincrease the capacity to accept and tolerate differences in relationships. This is a process that must occur prior to increasing the emotional bond with others. My objective in working with you is to help you identify what keeps youstuck in your personal relationships with yourself and/or others. Being stuck prevents you from identifying the cause of the problem so that you can take ownership of it rather than having to resort to defensive tactics that are only a quick fix. My clients tell me "I get it". My wealth of life experience enables me to identify the obstacles you face that keep you from embracing relationships that facilitate you in reaching your goals and achieving your full potential.
Knowing what makes you tick lays the groundwork to help you achieve your authentic life. Within each person there is passion. Failing to recognize what that passion is and use it denies a key part of who you are. It impacts everything: relationships, partner choices, and how you spend your time. Sometimes you need help learning to recognize what you know instinctively. Before you can understand someone else, you must know who you are and what you need. Learning how to listen to your gut and having the courage to follow where it leads enables you to get the life you want and deserve, and you deserveto live your best life.
Whether it is learning to improve relationships, increase self understanding, clarify your value system, or put your life into perspective, you have the power to take charge of your life and the quality of the relationships you build. You can improve your relationships, identify your goals and achieve them, work toward your true potential, and break the cycle to stop repeating the same mistakes of the past.
I can help you get there.
I will hear you, relate to the challenges you face, and will help you move past your obstacles so that you can live the life you are meant to live.
I would love to talk with you today. Please call 503.601.5428 for an appointment.
