Having trouble in your relationship? Are you struggling with grief from the loss of your child? Is your blended family stuck on "grate" or "grind"? I can help!
Got Relationship Troubles? I can help you and your partner improve communication, strengthen your friendship, and build or rebuild intimacy by identifying the ways you communicate and developing strategies for improvement. Even if your partner isn’t willing or able to come to counseling with you, individual therapy can still generate significant positive changes in your relationship! Working with you individually, I can assess your relationship through your eyes, and help you identify the ways that you and your partner communicate, and give you strategies for improving communication and rebuilding trust and intimacy.
I also help individuals manage the grief surrounding miscarriages, stillbirths, and infant loss— a special and unique subset that requires special handling and empathetic approaches. With compassion and care, I can help you move forward successfully, embracing your "new normal" even as you honor the child you have lost.
Blended Family seem more like Scrambled Family? Blended family dynamics are different from biological family dynamics! And they can get complicated— enough to make many families throw in the towel. I can help you navigate these challenging waters, creating new and functional family systems that work for everyone.
