real friend

Love me or hate me.
Chances are when you first meet me, you’re going
to have a strong first impression.

Okay, so maybe that’s a bit extreme; but the truth
is, my approach is not a good fit for everyone.

But clients who click with my style say that
sessions with me are like talking to a good friend.

A real friend.

A friend who doesn’t sugar coat things – who forces you to take an honest look at yourself and what you’re bringing to your relationship – the good, the bad, and the ugly – while remaining compassionate and warm.

Because that’s what a real friend does.

When you get to know me, you’ll find I get it.

I understand the challenges your particular lifestyle brings to the table in terms of starting couples therapy.

I recognize the value of your time and privacy.

You don’t want to waste it sitting in traffic just trying to get to me only then to worry about the lack of privacy you are likely to feel in a traditional therapy setting.

That won’t happen with me.

It’s all about your comfort.

A critical component to successful couples therapy is how comfortable you feel in the process and with me.

Where could you possibly feel more comfortable than in your own home, on your own couch, with your favorite mug and perhaps your dog or cat curled up beside you?

A safe environment makes it feel safer to be vulnerable with your partner, and that is what I will be asking of you throughout this journey together. Being in your own space allows you to set create the physical safety, together we will create the emotional version.

Secure. Supported. Liberated.

In the space we create,

You can feel safe.

You can speak freely.

Because you know I’m there.

To help you and your partner process whatever is said. No matter how emotional.

I’ll push when I need to push – and give space when you need it. I will witness the pain and hold the hope for you when you feel you’ve lost it.

In time, you’ll learn to do these things for each other, without me.
