I have a VERY positive anthropology... meaning that I believe that people are essentially good and are doing the best that they can at any given moment (even when that decision might have been crappy in hindsight). This is the essence that is a part of my approach with couples ... I want to help you see what the other was intending, what they were wanting to show, and how y'all can help each other start intending the best again for each other.
My approach is a highly Pragmatic Couples Therapy -- we do what works for y'all! This is your space and place to take your relationship to an AMAZING and fulfilling level.
Financial Therapy for Couples
Money, money, money! The world's final taboo!!! You likely did not learn how to manage it, how to talk about it, or what impact it can have on your relationships. That is where I come in. I can help you improve your own relationship with money and help you navigate the financial conversations with your partner in life.
I also do Financial Family Therapy, where we can have financial discussions with your adult children or parents to navigate launching issues and end of life issues as well! Money conversations do NOT have to be hard... Money conversations can be just the catalyst your relationship needs!
When you are choosing someone with whom you want to explore the workings of your heart and mind, you need someone who is going to take a contextual (i.e. a non-reductionistic) stance. I have studied psychology, philosophy (from the ancients, to the medievals, enlightenment, phenomenologists, existentialists, postmoderns, transcontextualists), theology and spirituality, mythology, anthropology, and neuroscience.
When we are speaking, I will be curious about how all of these intersect throughout your life. This of course is helpful for mental health issues (depression, anxiety, etc.) and for personal, professional growth as well. You are an interconnected individual and I want to think deeply about you, together with you.
