I work extensively with individuals looking to improve relationships with themselves and the people closest to them.
Individual relationship counseling is perfect for those whose partner isn’t ready to come to therapy, or for those who want to work on their part of the relationship without their partner.
I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an innovative and creative therapeutic modality that aids us in being with painful thoughts and emotions in a new way, changing what can be changed, accepting what we can’t control, and taking committed action toward our goals.
We’ll work collaboratively to:
- Decrease stress, worry, and anxiety
- Effectively handle difficult thoughts, feelings, and situations
- Stop self-defeating patterns
- Set meaningful goals based on your values
- Increase your feelings of self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-compassion
- Take an honest look at your relationship struggles
- Learn the skills you need to improve your relationships with others
- Evaluate the stories you are believing about yourself and those closest to you that keep you stuck
- Make difficult relationship decisions such as whether to stay or go
- Handle overwhelm more effectively
And when talking is not enough, I invite you to try Brainspotting Therapy.
