I’ve created a transformational solution-focused approach that:

Helps hold you accountable for being AWARE of the changes you want to make.

Facilitates COLLABORATION regarding the AWARENESSES of things that could be better.

Creates AGREEMENTS from the AWARENESSES.

Follows-up to REFLECT and determine if the AGREEMENTS are working. If not, what are the obstacles? What is standing in the way of you being able to create the life you want to live? Let’s troubleshoot and CONTINUALLY FINE TUNE YOUR AGREEMENTS WITH YOURSELF AND OTHERS.

Make an appointment and let's discuss your goals! Call/ Text: 813-240-3237

WE'LL CONNECT AND STRENGTHEN YOUR LIFE & RELATIONSHIPS IN 3 WAYS

Step 1 (To Do): Attune to Awarenesses
Awarenesses may start with researched assessments based on thousands of individuals or couples that will recognize cycles of conflict so issues can be stopped and transformed into moments for self-compassion, intimacy and connection. Receive a detailed analysis of your relationship style so you can turn your insecurity into opportunities for a deeper romantic bond. Miscommunication and disconnect happens when the lack of self-awareness could be part of the problem and partners don’t understand each other. My first task is to get you on the same page with yourself and loved ones. Let’s create a game plan and brainstorm agreements about how to start the process. This step can feel overwhelming but my goal is to help you focus and narrow down specific goals. We will approach the problems collaboratively with questions like: “How can life feel better?”, “How can each of you start positive changes intrinsically?”, “You are a subjective human and you can only feel and control you”. Therefore, all change happens intrinsically.

Step 2 (Doing): Attach to Agreements
Learn how to intentionally ask for what you feel and need in a way that gives your partner a way to express love. Create a culture of love and respect that builds trust and sexual passion. We will deal with perpetual problems, heal old wounds, and rekindle the spark of companionship together. Playfully explore ways to create a fulfilling and passionate relationship. Let’s create more intimacy that brought you together in the first place, create new agreements that make life more enjoyable, and meet each other’s needs. I’ll offer you specific techniques, resources, interventions, tools, or activities that may work for you by brainstorming, collaborating, and developing the treatment plan together. I will also explain how to connect through communication by making specific actionable, immediately do-able, positive requests. Learn how to love your partner without losing yourself.

Step 3 (Done): Accountability for Lasting Change
I give you all the tools you need to understand what changes need to be made, avoid relapse and continue to build a meaningful relationship that gets better with time. I’ll also help hold you accountable for creating, trouble shooting, and maintaining sustainable intentional responses to “This Thing Called Life” and… sustain a connection throughout changes along the way.
