Hold Me Tight

Sue Johnson’s book, Hold Me Tight (2008), illustrates the approach to individual and couples therapy I’ve been practicing since researching adult attachment theory in 1998. The attention to the loving pair’s attachment signalling and response is effective. I take it further by using the lens of adult attachment as an assessment tool for discovering the unmet needs of each person in the couple. Frequently these are needs that were unmet as children. Couple’s empathy for each other grows enormously as they learn of each other’s early wounding, and the habitual blame cycle is broken when love is unlocked and caring returned.

New: Skype Sessions

Some of my clients have chosen to occasionally use Skype for our sessions. They choose this if they have young children and it's hard to leave home, if their work schedule doesn't allow them time during the day for an appointment, or if they know they'd prefer to be in the comfort of their home or designated, private space to process their healing.

To learn more if this would be ideal for you, I encourage you to contact me.
