I provide couples counseling for those struggling with anger, frustration, a lack of intimacy, parenting issues and with their own internal issues. My office is in Rancho Mirage and I see patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quiinta and Indio.
I do not take sides. There is no place for blame or fault.
I provide a safe place for each person to be themself - an opportunity to understand how their individual histories have led them to this place.
I work with couples to become more aware of their underlying struggle and from this awareness, to start to see possibilities and positive choices. They do not have to continue to fight without resolution, escalating toward damaging words and feelings, resulting in sadness and fear.
I stress the need to improve communication and compromise in relationships. Each individual in a relationship needs to be able to tell the other what goes on with him or her without fear of the other's reaction (and without worrying about what that reaction might be). This is an important part of the process.
Boundaries, rules, and consequences are some of the interventions I use to increase safety and respect for the other. These useful techniques work and can result in rapid changes.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is reason to hope that you can begin to feel the possibility of you getting better, of finding intimacy, love, safety and respect.
