I am proud of those days that pass in undivided tenderness –Robert Bly
Relationships have many facets and tend to be complicated because people are complicated. Individuals come with a variety of views on what is nurturing and what is vital to sustain a healthy and satisfying relationship. Many needs are similar from person to person, but someone else’s needs may be met differently from how we might want or assume they should be met. Honoring yourself and others can help you to move beyond the places you keep getting stuck–the same arguments, behaviors, and negative emotional states. In therapy these various aspects within relationships are explored to uncover greater understanding of yourself and those you care about, helping you to have more satisfying relationships.
I offer assistance to help you with your relationships through individual, couples or family therapy. I also hold women’s groups for those wanting to work in a small, supportive group setting on issues challenging women today. Additionally, in recognition of a the difficulty parents and their older teens and adult children have transitioning roles as children move into adulthood, I offer groups for parents to discuss and acquire skills to help ease this transition.
