Relationship Counseling

Relationships are vital to our livelihood and happiness.

They also can be a potent way to learn about yourself, and grow and change. We often attract partners that compliment our particular wounding in such a way that moves us towards the healing and integration we need. This can be difficult and painful at times, but when we move through it consciously, can be ultimately rewarding, fostering more connection and happiness. It’s incredibly helpful to have an outside ear to help you through this process.

I Can Help With:

  • Communication Skills
  • Emotional Fluency
  • Sex and Physical Intimacy
  • Navigating Past Traumas
  • Healing Codependency
  • Building Trust
  • Navigating Conflict
  • Fostering Security
  • Cultural Differences between Partners
  • LGBTQI Relationships
  • Alternative Relationships (poly/open/kink)

I help you and your partner(s) understand your relationship dynamics – and each person’s role in creating that dynamic. I emphasize building emotional fluency, personal and interpersonal responsibility, and finding pathways towards connection. I’m influenced by Stan Tatkin’s Psychobiological Approach to Coulples Therapy (PACT), Hakomi’s principles of mindfulness and resourcing, contact improvisation’s wisdom in somatic attunement and “shared center,” attachment theory, polyvagal theory, and power dynamics.
