What to Expect in Your Sessions
The goal is to get what you want and need in your relationship

  1. The first session is mostly about your background and history. I can be more helpful when I get the big picture of who you are, where you come from, and what you’ve been through. 
  2. For the next session, you can complete the Keirsey Temperament Sorter to find out your Personality Style.
  3. You can complete an online Relationship Assessment if you like.
  4. There may be other questionnaires that may be helpful.  
  5. In the following sessions we explore what’s not working in your life and relationship(s). Then we can start to find solutions that do work. 

Discover Who You Really Are

  • Find out your personality type – are you more introverted or extroverted? organized or spontaneous? 
  • Identify your relationship style – do you crave closeness, run away from it, or go back and forth?
  • Discover how men and women really are different and how to find common ground
  • Explore your family-of-origin patterns so you stop triggering each other and have each other’s back instead

Counseling Helps You Heal Yourself and Your Relationship(s)

My goal is to help you put together the pieces of what makes you YOU. And to help you heal old wounds that may be getting triggered in your relationship(s).

If you’re in a relationship, we explore how your current conflict is triggering your family-of-origin patterns. When you heal those old wounds you aren’t so easily triggered. And your partner learns to be sensitive to your tender places. When you really understand the hurt you’ve both experienced you want to take care of each other instead of fight each other. 

If you’re single, we can explore your relationship patterns and how you may be attracting people like your family-of-origin. We can also look at new ways of dating to attract the kind of love you really want. 

I’ve been helping people have good loving relationships for over 25 years. And I can’t wait to find out how I can help YOU.
