You are reading this page probably because you are not happy living the way you have been living, and are motivated to make a change. You are looking for someone to help you make that change and achieve your goals to be in a fulfilling relationship and to live a rich life.
You have come to the right place. I specialize in treating conditions that get in the way of one having healthy relationships, and teach people skills to be more relational.Research shows that we, humans, are wired to attach. We crave being in relationships, romantic and otherwise, and cannot live a healthy life in isolation. However, research also shows that we no longer are willing to settle for a less than fulfilling relationship. Just being in a relationship is not enough for a healthy, happy life. The quality of that relationship matters. There has never been more demands on partners, spouses, friends and family members to show up and be relational. Some of us naturally know how to do that, most of us don't, and need to learn those skills.
A recent study out of Brigham Young University found that several factors contribute to healthy longevity. Yes, eating well, exercising, not smoking, no substance abuse, are part of that list, but they also found that "loneliness and isolation are as much a threat to longevity as obesity." The top two factors that contribute to healthy longevity are being in a meaningful relationship, and feeling that you belong to a community. We need healthy relationships.I help you design and develop a vision for the life of your dreams, and achieve that. We focus on your wants and needs, your communication and relational patterns, what gets in the way of your having what you crave, and work on building that life. We treat the conditions that could contribute to your not being as present and engaged such as depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, and self-sabotaging behaviors, and teach you skills to overcompensate for those and be more relational. You can't afford to wait on your dream life. You can start building it now! I can help.
