Description of Counselor/Practice
Perhaps you are struggling in a relationship, not able to communicate or stuck in negative patterns. Drifting apart, you yearn for intimacy and being desired. You wonder if you should go or stay when trust is gone. Or you may need to find your voice and create boundaries. Maybe you're an overachiever or your inner-critic has exhausted you, anxiety is finally too much. The relational conflict is starting to affect every area of your life. You are looking for a therapist who can get it and guide you through to the other side.
Asking for help could turn the hardship into a growth opportunity. Communication is not a gift, but a skill. Using evidence-based practice, I help couples and individuals to de-escalate the conflict and rebuild intimacy. Exploring untouched territory, you'll find it's easier to relate, forgive, and to regain trust and commit once again.
I am reminded everyday how resilient we are, we know how to love and how to heal. If your relationship is worth fighting for, I would love to hear from you. All couples and individuals are welcome. Please note I'm not able to accept insurance. 日本語でご連絡下さい。
