Cultivate Emotional Balance.
Ease Difficult Relationships.
for families and individuals
Are you frustrated and overwhelmed from dealing with your adult daughter or son?
Are you are a parent navigating the stress of having a grown daughter or son who is overly sensitive – to the point of being explosive and out of control or “manipulative” and controlling?
From relationship drama to emotional crises to some type of self-destructive behavior, you don’t know what is coming next.
It was not supposed to be like this. Your child is beautiful, smart, and talented. What went wrong? When is she or he going to grow up?
Perhaps everyone in the family is gaslighting you and making you out to be the bad guy.
You are feeling judged and maybe even bullied by your own family. This is just making you more sensitive and more reactive with those who are closest to you.
Nobody appreciates the real you.
You begin to doubt yourself and become less and less authentic, trying harder and harder to be more like someone else or to please others. Or maybe it is easier to just reject others before they totally reject you. In any case, there is way too much conflict, pain, anger, and shame in your life.
You can reduce emotional distress and conflict through coaching and skills training
Developing a greater awareness of your own internal state and practicing skills that cultivate inner calm, self-kindness, and a deeper connection with yourself is the first step.
This is a solid base for practicing effective interpersonal skills. As a result you can learn to communicate more effectively, deepen your relationships with others, and actually help yourself and your loved-ones to be more effective at managing their own behavior and solving their own problems.
I am Corrine Stoewsand, Ph.D. and I am dedicated to helping people to reduce emotional distress and conflict and experience greater life satisfaction.
I coach individuals and families to be more present, kind, and connected with themselves, and to develop effective interpersonal skills with others – at the service of awakening a deep sense of well being and genuine belonging. I also help families to understand more about what they perceive as a difficult, emotionally avoidant or explosive loved one and how to respond more effectively.
Genuine Validation teaches skills for developing emotional balance via understanding and descontructing emotions.
The book offers critical communication skills to improve interpersonal relationships. And perhaps most importantly it wraps up with ways to apply compassionate validation toward one’s self. Many rich examples bring these skills to life. Ancient human practices for calming and centering the mind and body are woven into contemporary clinical interventions. The result is a book that is useful for deepening the relationship that one has with one’s self, as well as with others, including the most difficult ones.
