Trauma is often overlooked and not dealt with, and it is often disguised as depression, anxiety, isolation or acting out behavior. Some experiences resulting in trauma involve abuse as a child or adult. Other experiences involve automobile and other accidents, losses related to divorce, immigration, and the passing of family and friends. I work with clients to resolve and heal from powerful traumatic early and recent experiences.
Premarital counseling can help you, as a couple, prepare your relationship for marriage. In premarital counseling I work with clients to improve their ability to communicate, set realistic expectations for marriage, and develop conflict-resolution skills.
I work with couples that have experienced infidelity and want to work on rebuilding their relationship. You don't have to be in the midst of a crisis to seek out help. Couples therapy is helpful for many couples whether dating, living together, or maintaining a long-distance relationship. Some typical issues addressed in couples therapy are infidelity, chronic illness, sex, anger, communication problems, child rearing, finances, substance abuse, and culture clashes.
Do you feel like you're constantly on the run and don’t have time for yourself? Do you often feel overwhelmed, frustrated, exhausted? Do you wish you could balance your emotions, make confident decisions, and just feel in control? It’s common for women to experience heavy feelings of depression, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, guilt, fear, and to get lost in the responsibilities of the day to day life. I help women create peace and balance in their lives.
