Having relationship problems? Can’t relax, your mind always races, memories keep intruding and affect your work, family, or social life? Have you tried a variety of ways to fix it but nothing really worked? These are problems I can help you with.
I focus on what’s happened to you vs. what’s wrong with you in two primary areas – relationships and couples as well as trauma. In the process I also work with individuals and children. I’ve helped several thousand people regain their lives, just like this woman, and I can help you as well.
Couples I work with are often struggling with a lack of emotional and physical intimacy. They’ve often lost respect and trust for each other, have little companionship, and complain of poor communication. And they often have frequent arguments about finances, sex, children, social media, etc. Sound familiar?
I help couples open up to each other, rebuild mutual respect, trust, and honesty, understand what’s not working in their relationship and why, help them come up with mutual solutions for their problems, and re-experience friendship and simple joy in just being with each other.
Past trauma, accompanied by grief, is all too often an underlying and untreated cause of relationship, work, and health problems. Many people have ongoing struggles with mental health and substance use. They feel guilty, ashamed, stressed out, damaged, alone, confused, emotionally numb, can’t sleep or concentrate, have racing thoughts, have mood swings and anger issues, worry constantly. Alcohol or other substances may have helped to a point, but also caused other difficulties. They ‘ve tried psych meds, therapy, substance rehab but nothing has really worked. They want their lives back but feel lost and out of control.
I provide outpatient therapy to help my clients identify and address those underlying causes, work with them on eight aspects of wellness, help them restore emotional and physical balance, and in the process help people regain their lives and experience a renewed sense of joy, inner peace, calmness, self-control, purpose, and meaning.
What do I do differently than others? First, I don’t focus on mental disorders. I focus on what’s happened to people, not what’s wrong with them. I also consider and help my clients explore other possible causes. I get feedback each session from my clients about how they’ve done over the past week, as well as how they think I’m helping them in each session and we track and work those results. The therapy I do is structured and we stay focused on your initial problems. While we work together on new problems as they arise we also stay focused on those primary problem areas.
The majority of those I’ve worked with over the years have had significant improvement, many 30-points or more compared to their pre-therapy scores in 10 or so therapy sessions.
