When relationships work, the good times are magical, meaningful, and memorable. They give us the extra stride in our step nthat inspires us to be our best self. 

In the long run, however, conflict inevitably emerges, even in the best and most fulfilling of marriages and partnerships. Conflict arises from disagreement, misunderstandings, irritating behaviors, etc., but these are usually only surface level expressions. The difference between a successful, lasting relationship, and one that goeso down in flames is HOW that conflict is managed, and how partners listen to each other’s deeper, emotional needs. 

Your relationship does not have to be held hostage to negative patterns of behavior. Getting better with your partner is about laying a new foundation of trust and becoming attuned to your partner’s needs for bonding. The the shadow-dance of hidden, inner woundings and emotions expresses itself between partners, but it does not have to be an all-consuming, purely destructive process. Let us find a way to navigate these difficult times that you find yourself in with your partner. 

I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology in 2014, at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology  in Palo Alto. I am registered with the Board of Behavioral Sciences as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT 82694). Outside of the therapy office, you can find me hiking with my doggo, getting involved in various activist capacities, producing music, and autodidactly absorbing volumes of information on a variety of topics, such as mythology, polytheism, Jungian/Depth psychology, divination, ecology, and sustainability.

Hablo Español con fluidez, y puedo ayudarle a usted y a su pareja a resolver los conflictos que han secuestrado su relación. Todas las relaciones tienen conflicto, pero la diferencia entre una relación sana y una que falla es cómo se maneja ese conflicto, y cómo se escuchen entre los dos de la pareja. Permítame mostrarles cómo establecer una nueva melodía para la danza del amor.
