Are you struggling with an estranged or tense relationship with your adult child, sibling or parents?
Like many people with family issues, you may be feeling angry, hurt or discouraged about how to find a way forward that will lead to connection and peace.
I believe that healing family relationships is heroic work. In the beginning you may be the only person in your situation who is willing to step up to the plate.
Re-building a family relationship involves:
- Personal change and growth
- Establishing healthy boundaries
- A clear strategy for initiating and navigating safe conversations to heal the past.
I will help you discover the “entry point” that can open up communication and trust. Working with a family member often is a “big picture” project. Once the proactive person (you) begins relating using healthy boundaries and modeling new behavior, family members usually take notice and change occurs over time.
Your family member may never want to join you in a healthy relationship. However, by doing this work you can find acceptance and inner peace and learn to make clear choices about how and when to engage with your special person or family in a healthy way for yourself.
Fees and Sessions
Session: One hour
Accepted forms of payment are cash, check, or credit/debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Amer. Express or Discover or Paypal.) Prior to your first session I will request that you provide a credit card number.
Since the scheduling of an appointment involves reserving time specifically for you, a minimum of 24 hour notice is required to re-schedule or cancel an appointment. A credit card number will be requested prior to your first session. The full session fee will be charged to the credit card number provided for appointments missed without notice or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, unless we are able to find a time to reschedule the appointment within two weeks. In the event of a no show or cancellation due to circumstances beyond your control, we can talk about a solution.

My son and I have been estranged for almost 10 years. I knew in my heart that we both longed to re-connect and have a close relationship. However the anger we both felt kept us from feeling safe with each other. After our sessions with Andrea I felt as though years of tension and anger were lifted from our shoulders. The work we did with Andrea helped us understand the past and feel empathy for each other. Now we talk often and are building a deeper relationship built on respect. I am deeply thankful to Andrea for helping us understand each other and bring new skills into our relationship.
I have found Andrea to have an exceptional ability to reflect my concerns and needs in ways that are encouraging and validating. She has journeyed with me into the deep shadows of my being and helped me to navigate and transform confusion and fear into clarity and consciousness. Her support and compassion have been a valuable model for me in how to support myself. Her style as a guide is one of companionship, depth, humor and compassionate insight. I would highly recommend her as a guide on your journey!
