Tuesday Through Saturdays
My work is solution focused. Our past family experiences are important. What we learned in our family is very much related to how we do relationships today. However, sometimes people may invest an inordinate amount of their time and resources analyzing the problems of the past. In doing so they may miss the exceptions to those problems that hold the key to change. What the Gottman method brings to couples’ work is an understanding of the influence of our past and specific tools to help us learn how to see and do things differently in the present.
Being a therapist is a second career for me after 20 years in the business world. I enjoyed business but I decided I wanted something more in the second half of life. As it turns out, my experience in the challenges and pressures of business is often useful for clients. Recently, I celebrated my 20th year as a therapist.
Couples face all kinds of challenges over time. Those stressors can change how we communicate and behave toward each other. If you are facing those challenges and you know things are off track, I hope you reach out for help and support. Let’s work together to learn the tools so you can make the course-corrections that can create a relationship in which you feel loved, valued, and appreciated.
So, if you feel stuck in a problem, you might consider changing your focus to working on the solution. Looking forward to meeting you.
