Hello! Are you seeking relationship support? Specializing in couple work and relationship counseling, I meet online or in my Vancouver, WA office location with couples and individuals. Online counseling offers the opportunity to avoid the stress of traffic, parking, babysitting and additional time away, instead choosing to snuggle into your comfy couch with your cozy socks and pet your cat during our sessions together!
In person counseling can provide an added measure of support by being present in the same physical space. I am happy to accommodate in any way you feel most comfortable.
We dive deep into the experiences that are creating anger, hurt and frustration, and cultivate peace, connection and hope. The process is virtually identical to the great work we do in-office.
I love working with couples! We will sit down and practice building love maps, sharing fondness and admiration, turning towards instead of away, the positive perspective, managing conflict, make life dreams come true and create shared meaning while ensuring trust and commitment are strong and established. I can’t wait to begin this work with you!
Recovery After Betrayal
Betrayal trauma occurs when someone we love and depend on betrays our trust in a critical way. This type of trauma can occur through infidelity, sexual addiction tears away at a relationship, love addiction creates separation and codependency steals away any form of trust and peace.
I walk through betrayal trauma with careful support, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to assist in realizing truths and piecing together hope and peace beyond the trauma. We will walk through this journey together.
Gottman Seven Principles Workshops
This is one of the favorite things I do as a counselor…because I get to present Gottman Principles with the man I love!
At the workshop, couples will learn how to:
- Foster respect, affection, and closeness
- Build and share a deeper connection with each other’s inner world
- Keep conflict discussions calm
- Break through and resolve conflict gridlock
- Strengthen and maintain the gains in your relationship
