    Does this sound familiar? 

    Do you feel like you can’t be yourself in relationships?

    Do you have the willingness to be honest and curious about yourself in new ways?

    Do you feel misunderstood in arguments with your partner – like you are gridlocked in the same disagreement with no resolve?

    Do you long to be known, understood and accepted by your partner?

    Do you feel stuck in resentment, depression and anxiety?

    Do you like you are giving your all, but still feel disconnected from yourself or others?

    We are social beings. Relationships are a gift. They have the potential to be beautiful, life giving parts of our lives as well as stressful and exhausting ones. Whether you’re maneuvering an unhealthy situation or simply trying to reconnect and communicate better, pausing with compassion to examine the way you view, understand, and respond to situations is key to finding genuine fulfillment in your relationships again. Relationship counseling can be pouring into yourself to help you be more present with people that are most important to you. Relationship counseling can be for couples, helping them flow in relationship with deeper intimacy and greater understanding.

    Sacred space, creative & evidenced based skills, with fresh insight are dedicated to you to help you feel heard, validated and empowered.

    J&G

    I wish I had known about EMDR so many years ago to help with many of my past military and other life traumas. However, I am so grateful that I am able to utilize it now, even years after traumatic events. The healing from EMDR has changed my life in so many ways then I can explain. It has helped me my marriage, as a mother, and with so many relationships with family, friends and coworkers. Being law enforcement, I recent my went through an extremely traumatic event and working with Kim with EMDR right away allowed me to heal in ways I never thought possible. This traumatic event was life changing… but working with Kim and utilizing EMDR has allowed me to heal and process in ways I honestly didn’t even think were possible. I promise you, EMDR is worth it, do not be afraid to try it.
