Couples Therapy/Family Therapy
Depression and/or Anxiety
Depression and anxiety affect more than just the person with the diagnosis. Mental illness affects the family system, relationships with romantic partners as well as the ability to contribute to activities and responsibilities. These diagnoses can be exhausting and wreck your ability to feel the closeness to those you love.
Couples & Fertility
The journey of fertility struggles is long, arduous, and takes a toll on relationships. Challenges related to grief, depression, self-esteem, and shame are common. Add in things like invasive procedures, schedules and timelines, and loss of bodily trust and autonomy, and it makes sense that communication, connection, and passion might wane. I have personal experience and professional expertise in helping couples stay connected and make it through the up and downs of fertility-related difficulties. You don’t need to do this alone.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which is a highly effective model for working with couples, and helping them resolve even the most challenging issues. From infidelity, to a partner’s childhood sexual abuse, and everything in between, EFT has proven its power as a source for hope, healing, and change.
Reproductive Mental Health
It wasn’t supposed to be this hard. People get pregnant by accident all the time. You’re not sure how many disappointments you can take before you break down. This is so unfair. Another round of IVF/IUF, another negative pregnancy test, another devastating loss.
If this is your story, I know how you’re feeling through personal experience, and I know that therapy can help navigate the pain, hopelessness, and complicated experiences that come with fertility issues. If you would like to work with a therapist who truly understands the emotional roller-coaster of hope and heartbreak, reach out to schedule today.
I also do specialized work with couples who are facing fertility challenges.
Other Mental Health
You’re feeling depressed, anxious, fatigued, and overwhelmed. Sometimes the shame and disappointment are unbearable, and you just wish you could have the life you want.
Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Stress
Though all people get stressed and experience bad days, sometimes it gets to be too much. If you’re ready to try something different and start to feel better, get in touch today.
Grief and Loss
• Loss of the breadwinner in the family
• Loss of the family pet
• Loss of a grandparent
• Loss of the family home
• Loss of mobility due to illness
No matter the cause of the grief, it’s hard. The world continues to move forward and at times you can feel like it’s leaving you behind.
