Sharing an intimate relationship with another, where we can blossom and grow to be our best selves, is our highest calling as humans. We come together with another to love, live, and laugh, to create a family, to experience the feeling of being loved and cherished.

If only we had been given a compass at birth to help us navigate what seem like murky waters! Instead, we are left to figure out how to do the relate part of the relationship on our own. Often, good intentions are not enough to get us through misunderstandings—we need a little help to understand one other, and ourselves.

When problems arise, as they naturally do in most relationships, we often feel adrift, betrayed, misunderstood. This period of conflict does not have to be a time of strife—it’s an opportunity for amazing growth—for the relationship, and for the individuals.

Whether you’re new to, or experienced with, therapy, I can help you find the next step on your journey to the life you were meant to lead. I offer workshops for couples and individuals around the globe, combining more than 30 years of experience with different modalities such as Imago, Bioenergetics, and Expressive Arts.

With compassion, humor, insight, fun (yes, fun!), and lots of creative energy, I’ll help you to learn to relate and communicate in a gratifying, heart connection way. Together, we will get curious about your life–we will play, we will unfold, and we will find the inspiration you need to live a fully expressed life.
Bio
Hi, I’m Garet and I’m a certified IMAGO therapist and presenter for Getting the Love You Want couples’ workshops and Keeping the Love You Find workshops for individuals. I’m also certified in Bioenergetic Analysis, a somatic psychotherapy. I have been in private practice as a therapist since 1986. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me.

I have been on a mission my entire life: a mission to understand my self and the world around us through the relationships people form with one another and the ways we come to know ourselves. My innate curiosity and love of travel have taken me all over the world to learn more about cultures, people, and how we create and maintain connections. And, while each culture has distinct characteristics, at our core we all quest for love, respect, and understanding. With curiosity, creativity, and compassion, I can help you along your journey to an abundant life of love and fulfillment.

Heal the Body, Heal the Mind

Our minds and bodies are inextricably linked. Memories tied up in one, affect the other. In order to heal and grow from our past, we must address both the mind and body. I draw from a rich and diverse background of healing techniques and psychotherapy experience including Expressive Arts Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-processing (EMDR), and addictions, in addition to Imago Couples Therapy and Bioenergetic Analysis. Together, we will work to use the modalities best suited to healing your past and paving the way to a brighter future.

Healing Relationships Around the Globe

As a conference keynote speaker and workshop facilitator, I have presented at local, national, and international conferences. In addition to offering psychotherapy in my private practice with individuals and couples, I am available for workshops and speaking engagements and your next conference, retreat, or workshop—whether in Kenya or Kentucky!
