A Message from Keneesha

We are born with an innate need to belong and are hardwired for connection. Emotions are meant to propel us toward each other, still sometimes our life experiences teach us to turn away from or against others in times we need each other most making it hard to trust and rely on others, sometimes even ourselves. Aloneness and disconnection create a range of problems, emotionally and physically, including instilling beliefs that we must get through the hard stuff in life all by ourselves.

Relationships are at the core of human experience. I work with individual clients and couples to establish strong therapeutic relationships where we work together to address and remove the blocks and to increase tolerance for difficult or big emotion that can leave us feeling alone or like something is wrong with us. In both individual and couples therapy, we strengthen your relationships with others and, most meaningfully, change your relationship with yourself to build competence and self-worth where you can communicate your needs and reach out to your closest relationships. Emotionally accessible, responsive, and engaged relationships with yourself and others are created deepening your experience of true connection and belonging.
