Welcome to our practice! I am happy that you have found us and have chosen us to help you with your relationships. We are a team of dedicated psychologists who believe in the healing power of human connection. Life is like the four seasons. They occur in cycles - some seasons are cold and gloomy, others are warmer and joyful, or they are transitioning in between. And, as the seasons, we go through periods in life where we feel more joyful and connected, or gloomier and disconnected. However, when we stay too long in one season, we might have difficulty finding our way out. Often, we get stuck in old ways of behaving and life does not seem to flow naturally. A change in our old ways is needed, but we don't always know how or what to do. When working with us, we will help you connect with yourself and with your loved one, and to navigate the, sometimes, "rocky road" back to each other's hearts. As part of our work together, we will identify the vicious cycle that you are stuck in and we will develop a safe process to create improved ways to connect with each other. Returning to a more joyful season is possible and we will be here to help you achieve that!
