Well, I've been blissfully married for decades (to the same guy!) and so know from experience how very challenging relationships can be. Also, for ten years I lead two weekly groups that grounded my expertise as a guide for the couples' journey. I will always be grateful for what those individuals taught me. They demonstrated the humanity and dedication to overcome almost any obstacle in order to enjoy a great partnership. In return, I introduced them to the best models, theories, videos, movies and books out there about healthy relationships. I truly believe in, and can teach you, how to make your lasting relationship hot, and your hot relationship last.
If you're skeptical about therapy, read on. You may want to try EMDR before you give up. I believe in talk therapy. But I also believe that an hour of EMDR is typically the equivalent of months of traditional therapy. It's different. Its also safe, swift, and very effective. It builds on any therapy you've already had so we won't need to reinvent the wheel. We begin with covering simple micro skills so you can start EMDR with confidence and a framework for understanding your EMDR experiences. After as few as 1 or 2 sessions, most people begin to find that their problems are no longer so hurtful. I've applied EMDR to most conditions. This includes trauma, but also developing positive strengths and mindfulness. It really helps with grief, anxiety, phobias, depression, bipolar disorders, ADHD, creative blocks, codependence, couples' conflict, and anger, sleep, pain, chronic illness, and stress and cravings management.
One client said that learning CBT was like getting a gift that keeps on giving. Long after we completed therapy, her CBT superpowers continued to generate positive lasting change. For me, CBT comes closest to matching the amazing range and complexity of the human experience. I love it, have used it for decades, and continue to study it. The vibrant focus on the thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes that drive our habits and relationships brings practical results like no other.
