Couples & Group Counseling

With a background in Bowen family systems work and Imago relationship therapy, I work with couples, facilitating improved communication and the working through of interpersonal patterns that are not effective.

I have an online women’s group mentorship program, please call if you have an interest in learning more.  The social support provided by group work has been found to be a profound factor in healing. Dr. David Spiegel’s research on women with end-stage metastasized breast cancer treated in the 1970’s found that whether or not the women were in a support group was the most crucial factor in who had a better outcome. The women in support groups survived twice as long, living approximately 18 months longer than the other women.

The women’s group mentorship program runs for six months, with bi-weekly online meetings.  It is to support women in the process of becoming someone who honors her own needs more of the time, trusts her insights and intuition, and who acts from her authentic self rather than from the part that wants to please others at her own expense. The group will be highly experiential, each meeting focusing on another aspect of a fearless approach to life: the integration of the masculine and the feminine aspects of the Self, assertiveness, discernment about what life is offering, development of healthy boundaries, releasing self-defeating patterns, making lifestyle changes that increase rest and relaxation. Guided imagery, energy awareness skills, meditative practices, and creative forms of self-expression will be part of the process.
