Great to meet you!
I work with individuals, families, parents, and couples (premarital, married, divorcing and divorced, co-parenting couples). My client is the relationship and my goal is that you experience new life in your relationship. Sometimes couples get stuck in familiar ways of functioning, and with therapy, can learn to function differently in a way that can change the dynamics of the relationship.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I am a structural family therapist, who incorporates CBT. I then focus on identifying the core beliefs you hold that are triggered by your current circumstances and begin to challenge those beliefs so that you began to have internal healing. It is important to work on the core belief, else we tend to couple and procreate before getting healed, and thus we pick partners and raise our children from our pain, which recreates our own wounds.
What you can expect from our first session
I create a non-judgmental environment, and am a avid believer in social justice, addressing disenfranchisement marginalization, sexism, poverty, and racism that can create maintain additional barriers in marriage.
