One of the most difficult areas of life for many people is relationships.
I pay special attention to this most crucial aspect of happiness, aiming for balance and true communication in partnership. In my work with couples, we identify and – if necessary – modify communication styles. We improve listening skills.
Often, deeper troubles are hidden in surface complaints. With guidance, couples can improve their ability to relate in respectful, fulfilling ways. My job is to help each partner say the difficult words they are afraid to say. I am very skilled at this task.
I am respectful and nonjudgmental in my approach. One of the primary keys to success in therapy is that the therapist be emotionally available and empathic; these are at the forefront of what I strive to be.
For one human being to love another, that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks ... the work for which all other work is but preparation.
– Rainer Maria Rilke
