The individual counseling I provide is strongly rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is an evidence-based approach to counseling. Individual therapy may also include relaxation and mindfulness techniques to help a person cope with stress more effectively.
I conduct couple therapy sessions using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which focuses on helping partners recognize and change their negative patterns of interacting with each other. EFT is also evidence-based, meaning its effectiveness is strongly supported by scientific research. In EFT sessions, I focus on helping you and your partner identify and understand your unhelpful patterns of emotionally reacting to each other. I then help you and your partner learn how to reconnect through this improved understanding of each other’s emotions. I have received professional training in EFT, and I’m confident that this method can help couples improve their relationships in a way that creates lasting results.
