Within a contemplative environment, a supportive and trusting therapeutic relationship can open your heart to yourself and provide an inner journey home. It is with a deep sense of understanding and compassion toward yourself, that you may begin to trust your feelings and find clarity in areas where there was once confusion. Many problems in relationships arise from old wounds or hurt that cause us to close down emotionally, and lose our capacity to trust ourselves and others. This limits us from being able to love, leaving us feeling fearful, angry, sad, or anxious, and impacting many areas of our life.
Guiding you with gentleness, compassion, and a sense of humor, we can mindfully hope to embrace the complexities of your life. There by increasing self awareness, acceptance, and self-love , and getting in touch with your inner most truths, beginning to be better able to express yourself, and finding your sense of purpose and a greater authenticity.
In a mutually healthy relationship, each person can share his or her thoughts, ideas, and feelings and feel that they were heard and validated. Each person allows themselves to remain open, and make choices that consider and protect the relationship, understanding the impact on the other and the relationship as a whole. This is the basis for creating a connecting, mutually empowering relationship that is continually able to change and grow.
Having a loving, harmonious, connected family relationship can bring a deep sense of peace and unity. Often times, there is a disruption in the family that throws off the family equilibrium. Family therapy looks at the family through a wholistic approach, where by each member adjusts themselves to compensate for the shift in the family dynamics. Many times one person in the family appears to be the “target” person that needs to be fixed in order to repair the delicate nature of the family. As a family therapist, it is important to consider each member, their role in the family, and the ways in which they are coping with adjustments and changes. My goal as a therapist is to help the family identify a system that is no longer working , in order to restore the family back to a healthy homeostasis.
