“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
I'm passionate about helping couples see their own needs and fears more clearly and to communicate them in a way that their partner can hear. This process builds trust and strengthens your loving bond.
I'm extensively trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy, an attachment science-based, research-validated approach that has been widely used for over 30 years.
Birth Spiral Counseling
I specialize in working with diverse couples and families who are on a birthing path.
Pregnancy and birth can present intense physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual transitions for individuals within a relationship. Counseling support during this juicy time can help strengthen your supportive relationship bonds as you grow into this new phase of your lives together and work with the myriad of unknowns to come. Feeling more secure in your relationships reduces stress - and supports our ability to really drop down into the primal transformative magic of the birth process.
In addition to complication-free pregnancies at home or at a hospital, I have experience supporting couples and families with pregnancy stressors, such as infertility challenges, psychological and physical pregnancy and birth trauma, and pregnancy loss (intentional and unintentional). I am also available for postpartum relationship support counseling.
"We help people basically move into accessibility, responsiveness, and engagement. We help people take risks. We help people go into their emotions, listen to them, not judge them, accept them. We help people reach for each other and support each other."
