Sometimes we get get lost in dark emotions, repeating unhealthy patterns, unsure how to stop. Working through emotions and learning new coping strategies can truly increase the quality of your life.
Our relationships can get off track, as we unconsciously repeat dysfunctional patterns we learned from our family or previous relationships. What may feel like a failed relationship may really be a sign that it’s time to discover healthier ways to give and receive love. Couples counseling can help you develop more honesty and intimacy with your partner and find a more authentic way to connect.
My role with couples looks more like coaching than counseling. Offering honest feedback and helping couples improve communication and resolve unhealthy patterns.
Trauma is not easily or successfully treated with talk therapy, so in trauma work we focus on the non-verbal areas of your brain where the trauma is stored. I am a certified EMDR practitioner and also trained in Brainspotting; both therapies release trauma from the body and mind without extensively talking about it.
