Counseling to Thrive

Wouldn’t it have been amazing if in school we had not only learned math and history but also  relationship and communication skills?  If each year we had progressed our level of communication had gotten better and better?  What if we had also learned how set boundaries and manage our time?  How to manage anxiety and calm our mind?  Unfortunately, most of us didn’t get the benefit of learning these very basic skills growing up. But that doesn’t mean that it’s too late to integrate them into our lives.  It is a privilege for me to spend my time and work teaching and guiding people towards healthy relationships and fulfilling lives.

Things to look for when you want to be in a secure relationship while dating

So you have decided you want to relationship but you don’t want to date people who are unavailable or avoidant. Here are some things that you should be on the lookout for: Do they actually want a relationship? Do they like being in relationship? Do they know how to be a good partner? (you will need to define what being a “good partner” means, but generally: listens to you, is thoughtful, plans time with you, asks you how you are doing, responds compassionately, supports you when you are low or in need, is attuned to you specifically, remembering things you tell them, has capacities to help you in life). Do they actually have time to be in a relationship? Do they know about the strengths and capacities they bring to relationship and their weaknesses? Do they know why the relationships [...]

Thoughts on life, relationships and thriving


“Sefora was such a blessing to us! We got through so much crap that I’m not sure we could’ve overcame without her help. She is clever, has a good sense of humor, warm, personable, incredibly smart, inquisitive, and has a way of being soothing when a lot of difficult emotions are being brought up, yet encourages you to get words out when it would be easier to sweep them under the rug.”

“My partner and I received a session from Sefora and immediately felt a release of pressure and more clear direction. She is very sweet and unbiased and brings a unique, yet effective method to her work. I highly recommend Sefora as a therapist for couples.”

“I have worked with Sefora several times over the last many years, and have always left the sessions feeling more clear, less stuck, and able to approach my healing with a new perspective.”

“I have been seeing Sefora every week for a year now.  Having seen other life coaches before with limited success, I continued to show up to each appointment with a bit of skepticism.  At every appointment, Sefora demonstrated so many helpful insights into my situation that I was won over repeatedly in this manner for several months before I was “sold.”  I began bringing a notebook to take notes as she spoke so that I wouldn’t miss a thing, while with other coaches in previous years, maybe I would get one or two take home points from the session that barely justified the fee for me.  With Sefora, I honestly feel that I have a brilliant ally who is sincerely dedicated to my progress and well-being.  Sefora really goes above and beyond…I am genuinely moved.  It takes a lot of displays of proof for this skeptic to say such a thing…see for yourself!”

“Sefora is super knowledgable about working with couples.  I really appreciate her energy and passion for her job, and she’s so good at it.  She is very warm, has a sense of humor and really understands the difficult dynamics that couples get in – get stuck in!”

“Sefora has a gentle, nurturing way about her. I always feel safe sharing the intimate details of my life because I trust her to use the inforomation to help me break through to the healing. She encourages me to be honest and courageous which has really made a positive impact on my progress. I really appreciate her holistic approach because it provides space for me to speak freely and not edit myself. I can tell that she genuinely cares about helping me work through my issues so I can create the life of my dreams.”
