I have felt the tension between touching a deep longing that I want so desperately to be met and yet finding myself behaving in ways that are not conducive to my partner seeing me and responding in how I need them. The words are so hard to come by in these moments and yet there can feel like such an urgency to get the response you are needing from your loved one.
I will help you and your partner slow these loaded moments down so that the sharer can get more clear of what they are feeling and needing and the hearer can actually get access to the call for connection that is beneath what typically sets them off.
We are all marked by the moments of love and care as well as the non-ideal experiences we have endured. How we adapted to these non-ideal situations are helpful in the initial environments that required them but over the lifespan can cause limitations to a person’s sense of freedom, authenticity, and overall happiness.
I practice from an experiential, psychodynamic, and emotionally-focused posture. What this means is that there is a focus on your emotional experience as this helps us understand what motivates you in your relationships and your engagement in the world. As you come to feel safe enough, parts of yourself including feelings, meanings, desires, and longings, that could not be allowed or explored at a particular time in your life, can be “felt and dealt” with and ultimately lead you to both like yourself and feel more like yourself. It is truly my privilege to witness and be an active participant in you becoming more like you.
I am now able to offer myself more care and kindness, which leads to further awareness and understanding, because of the work Alex and I did together.
Alex always made me feel very safe and welcome, and made sure his space was always neat and comfortable. His manner of speaking, how he asked questions, and listened intently by leaning in and maintaining eye contact helped me know that he genuinely cared and made me feel seen and heard.
Working with Alex felt very natural and safe. As my first experience with a therapist, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew I got lucky with Alex.
Alex's manner of speaking, how he asked questions, and listened intently by leaning in and maintaining eye contact helped me know that he genuinely cared and made me feel seen and heard.
As I worked with Alex, I noticed I began to be more comfortable and welcoming of all parts of myself, especially the areas I was ashamed of and unwilling to acknowledge.
From very early on in our time together Alex was very attuned to my needs and gave me the space and respect I needed to be able to grow.
During our time together Alex helped me to develop the ability to have grace for all the elements of my past and my story, which has continued to help me since our time together.
