People who enroll in services with COEXISTUS are typically experiencing a great deal of frustration, disappointment, etc. with one or more relationships in their interpersonal system or with their own ability to handle challenges constructively. Often clients are going through a major life transition and they need some help getting through it and setting up a new normal. Most everyone I work with recognizes that they want to reduce and eventually eliminate dysfunctional patterns and abusive behaviors in order to provide more stability, safety, and security for themselves and those they care about.
Our most common clients are Parents, Co-Parents, Protectors, and... Roommates.
Our parents, and the generations before them, did the best they could with the skills, information, and resources they had available to them at the time.
Humility breeds humanity...
with humility we gain the wisdom and the support of our shared humanity.
All of us are highly influenced by what we experienced in our family of origin, for better or for worse. Much information is passed down automatically through the generations with little awareness of the impact this has on how we treat ourselves and others. As adults we can intentionally make more informed decisions about how we live our lives, how we care for and impact others, and the quality of the legacy we inevitably leave behind.
I'm here to provide you with healing, skills, information, resources and support.
All of the services offered are especially designed to provide parents with essential services that help them raise the level of functioning of their family system so it can better support family members with their inevitable challenges and life transitions.
A family system grows and evolves in response to life's challenges and transitions. The hope is that the children have more people who love and support them through life's challenges... and that they have more resources, not less as a result of significant life transitions.
This family system is an example of a multi-generational system with many different parts. They appear to have weathered the inevitable storms, at least to the extent that they could get together long enough to create this family photo!

we are challenged to change ourselves.
