Couples

Relationships can be a joy and a painful struggle.

Sometimes, the person you once loved can feel like a stranger or even an enemy. Fortunately, couples counseling can foster concrete change and bring relief to old dynamics. If you are struggling with your partner and wish to feel like a team again, I believe I can help.

We all know how messy relationships can be behind closed doors. Bringing a therapist into your relationship for help and showing them the messiness can be intimidating. My passion and expertise is in fully exploring those difficulties with you and your partner, and helping you both find your way out.

Consultation

Life can be a real challenge at times.

Joining people in the depths of their psyche often takes us to the depths of ours. Although I greatly value psychological theory, I find that usually the real difficulties in our work arise not from a lack of knowledge, but from the moments where our personal histories prevent us from being able to be, feel and freely think about our clients. 

As such, I believe in consultation that marries a deep exploration of what is happening with the client, with what is happening within us. Rather than an inquiry into what more could be said or done, I am interested in how our internal landscapes prevent us from easily joining our clients. In my experience, consultation in this form is far more personally evocative and rewarding. By knowing something new in ourselves we are able to know something new in our clients, and that changes everything. 
Tom Ogden, Donald Winnicott and Antonino Ferro have been the most influential practicioners in my own understanding of the human psyche and how change occurs. I am also greatly influenced by Hakomi and EFT..

Consultation Group

Life can be a real challenge at times.

Group consultation can easily become an over-stimulating experience as we are told by multiple people with varying ideas how we should be doing something different with our clients. In my experience we do not need more ideas about what to do with our clients. We need other minds and psyches to come to experience our clients anew and show us how to be with them in fuller ways.

To do effective therapy is to be scared and not know what is happening. Finding confidence in the midst of these dark corners allows us to not just tolerate, but ultimately thrive within these realms of insecurity. This group aims to help you inhabit these intense dynamics of clinical struggle with grace.

Sharing our cases and listening to other’s feedback is almost always emotionally provocative. What gets provoked within us can be extremely insightful and helpful to the case, but we have to feel safe enough to fully share, explore and harness these inner experiences or ‘countertransferences’. Therefore it is necessary that the group is safe enough for us to communicate what is evoked and thus support us each to be able to more fully share our clients’ struggles as well as our own struggles as therapists. 

Emotional safety within the group also allows the listeners to be able to share their darker reactions, which are often keys to helping the presenter to move beyond their current stuck or habituated dynamic with the client. Often as practitioners, we can not see beyond our fixed patterns of relating because of an unconscious mechanism that we collude with our clients to avoid. An attuned and safe group has the freedom and bandwidth to be able to bring these unconscious corners into the light. 

In order to support a deeper dialogue about our clients and our work, we discuss one client for several weeks. This allows us to more fully digest the clients experience and discuss what we are really doing in our work.

Contact me if you are interested in joining the group and we can further discuss if it is the right fit for you.

Am I the right therapist for you? Having a guide who is experienced in the workings of human psychology really does help. The past 15 years of working with individuals and couples, has taught me a deep respect and understanding of the complex workings of the human psyche.

Picking a therapist is an important decision and I encourage you to take your time. This site will give you a sense of who I am and how I can help. As words and pictures are inherently inadequate, it is typically best for us to talk on the phone and ideally meet in person so you can really get a sense if I am right for you.
