I see therapy as a symbiotic relationship in which, together, we deepen self-awareness, compassion, and relational attunement.

Research from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) emphasizes co-regulation and expression of underlying attachment needs. I work closely with couples and empower them to tap into their own and their partner's vulnerabilities.
I pay attention to experiences not just at the level of thought but also at the level of physical sensations and nervous-system response. Using mindfulness-based practices we can experience moments of non-distraction and interrupt incessant thinking or rumination in order to feel fulfilled in the present moment.
Growth and change happen through self examination and reflection, and through interpersonal relationships. The therapy relationship is one in which we can be curiosity about your unique ways of relating to self and others and to adjust unhelpful pattern to make way for positive growth.
