AREAS OF FOCUS
Strengthening Marriages & Couples
I fundamentally believe that marriage should be fun. Think back to when you were first dating, when falling in love was so natural. You probably enjoyed each other. I imagine you had fun, you talked, you dreamed, you laughed, you dated and had adventures and new experiences together.
But then life happened. You grew up. You had kids, maybe some more schooling, jobs, bills and stress. Fun and flirtation was probably replaced by responsibility and survival. If you’ve disconnected over the years or hurt feelings and resentments are getting in the way of you really enjoying your relationship, I can help.
Physical intimacy is one of the most vulnerable and problematic areas of relationships and we don’t talk about it nearly enough. So many emotional and relational dynamics are manifest through physical intimacy, like: meeting each other’s needs, giving vs taking, and feeling loved, valued and appreciated.
Add to that the complexity of hormones, having kids and stressful jobs, and diminished sex drive in one or both spouses and you’ve got breeding ground for a lot of feelings of rejection and disconnection. Read more about sex therapy by clicking below.
Being a teenage girl is really, really hard. The truth is, as wonderful as a parent as I’m sure you are, there are simply things your daughter is going through that she’s not talking to you about. I get to be this adult in her life that she can talk to openly, where she won’t be judged or worry about getting in trouble, but I’m still invested in her long-term well-being.
I’m the perfect blend of role model and friend. I’m older and wiser but I’m still cool (hopefully!!) and in the know with what’s probably going on in her world. I firmly believe that it’s one of the best investments you’ll make for them.
Experiencing doubts or questions about faith can be really overwhelming, daunting and lonely. Similarly, if you have a loved one in a faith crisis it may also feel overwhelming, scary and lonely.
Same Gender Attraction: LDS or not, coming to terms with LGBT issues can be an emotional roller coaster. You’ve probably spent most of your life up until this point trying to dismiss those feelings or “pray away the gay.” It hasn’t worked and now you’re ready to figure out what your sexuality means and how to reconcile your testimony.
Newsflash! Sleep is critical to our emotional and physical well-being. We all know this, yet somehow, we all walk around tired and we just accept exhaustion as part of adulthood. That doesn’t need to be the case, getting quality sleep again is possible.
If you have chronic insomnia, I can help! I’m specially trained in a method called CBT-I that’s proven to be the most effective behavioral treatment for insomnia out there. It’s a super cool process that retrains your brain to sleep well again
