Jonathan's Approach

You are more than the problems that beset you.

Counseling encourages the brave work of self inquiry and relational connection.

Your relationships are the touchstones to your personal well being. Our work will take a close look at those bonds - past and present - that continue to influence your present experience. Our weekly interactions provide ongoing opportunities to develop more authentic connections with your own well being and with those most important to you.

The lion’s share of my work as a relational therapist involves assisting individuals to better regulate their relationships with others. If overwhelmed by the needs of others, we focus on practicing setting more effective boundaries. Or, if disturbed by isolation, we practice allowing more vulnerability to show through to increase opportunities for bonding. By paying attention to the patterns apparent in our therapeutic relationship, we can discover clues to broader patterns and explore ways to “adjust the temperature” in order to create better-regulated habits as we return to our families and communities.

Gayatri's Approach

Our interactions with the world are shaped by our families and the broader cultures that surround us as we grow up. As an adult, you might find that those patterns no longer work for you, or they get in the way of your having fulfilling relationships with your spouse, children or others in your life. Sometimes, a major life transition like divorce or the death of a loved one can leave you overwhelmed and in need of support.

As a strengths-based therapist, I believe that that you have inner resources to change and grow, and you can be the author of your own story. You are the expert on your life; I will be the person who helps you find new directions to reach the goals you want, within the context of your values and beliefs. My approach is collaborative and interactive, and I strive to strike a balance between empathic listening and offering honest perspectives. I will be honored to work with you on your journey.

You can also initiate a conversation with Jonathan or Gayatri by email or phone. Leave your number and a good time to reach you. They will do their best to get back to you within 24 hours.
