About My Clients

Feeling disconnected from your partner, like you are living parallel lives? We are social creatures and desire connection with others. You may be feeling hurt, confused, or stressed and need the support of someone that can listen and help you navigate the needs and wants of the relationship while learning the skills to resolve conflict. I will help you to learn to understand what your partner is saying, to put the message into words you can hear.

My Background and Approach

In the work I do with couples or with individuals in relationship work, I take an integrative approach to meet clients where they are at with the techniques that will work best for them and their situation. I am compassionate, genuine, and often try to bring humor into the room, but can also be direct and confrontational to get to the core of the issues. Some of the specific areas that I am trained in are Gottman Method Couples Therapy and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) for couples. What you are going through is quite common in relationships and I want you to know you are not alone. Learning to communicate with one another, being heard, and getting needs met are common goals of the clients I work with. If you are noticing a disconnect in your relationship and want to work on finding your way back to one another, I encourage you to reach out to explore how we can work together to help you re-connect in your relationship.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal belief is that the mind and body are connected.  What does that mean?  It means that there is a connection between what is going on in your mind and symptoms in your physical body.  I will focus on sorting through what the brain is telling you and how you are physically reacting to that message.  We will come up with coping skills, focus on incorporating self-care, and even incorporate breathing techniques, meditation, and other activities that you deem calming.  It isn’t until we get through the things that get us worked up that we can deal with processing through the issue. I see therapy as a collaborative experience where the therapist and couple work together to resolve or manage the problems that have brought them in. I want my clients to feel comfortable enough to share, when they are ready, but also to tell me if they would like to try a different approach. This is your therapy!
