About My Clients

My clients find themselves in painful relationships but are confused as to why. They're conscientious, caring people who want to be in thriving, life-giving relationships, but feel lost as to how to make that happen. Some of their close relationships leave them feeling depleted, worn out, burned out, or confused, but they're not sure why they feel the way they do. Nothing on the outside seems to indicate that something's wrong, but they feel bad about themselves.

My Background and Approach

My primary client population are 20- and 30-something individuals and couples who really crave healthy, lasting relationships but feel stuck, confused, or discouraged. No matter how hard they try to connect with their loved ones, they end up with even more hurt and disconnection than before. In my training as a Marriage & Family Therapist, I believe that the best way to heal from relationship pains is through relationships. Although self-help books are indeed helpful, nothing beats learning with another human being. Your life is so valuable - I would like to get to know your unique story and customize your journey for you. I focus on patterns in major relationships (family, significant other, and children) to see where growth can best happen to create the kind of relationships you so deeply want. Though this process may involve facing very uncomfortable parts of your life, this may be the key to unlocking your potential to love and be loved.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

You are the driver in the driver's seat. You have your hands on the steering wheel, and your feet on the gas and brake pedals. You pick the destination, and at what pace you'd like to go. As your therapist, I am a passenger sitting beside you, pointing out some options on how you can get to where you'd like to go. I give you a head's up on what to expect along the way, point out what to be on the lookout for, and redirect you if we miss an exit. Ultimately, I value having you have in most control over your own journey. Instead of me forcing my goals, my viewareas my opinions onto you, I create a space where you can show up as you are in your already wonderful self. Would you give me the permission and honor to accompany you on this trip? I would love to bear witness to the magnificent process of healing, growth, and transformation you will undergo. Looking forward to getting to know you and your story! Warmly, Joanne
