About My Clients
If you are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, or distress, you don’t have to carry that on your own. I am passionate about joining individuals and couples to address those places where you feel distressed or stuck. I believe that finding new ways to relate to others can bring growth and purpose in your life.
My Background and Approach
I provide care to couples and individuals. I have received training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT; Externship) which I use to treat couples as well as individuals. In addition, I have received training EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing; Level 2) which is an approach designed to help survivors of trauma regain their balance and reduce distressing symptoms. I am also trained in the Gottman Method couples model (Level 2). I have experience working with couples, families, children, and individuals with a variety of concerns including trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, and family relational issues.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
In my work I value seeing difficulties in the context of relationships. Our relationships with our family of origin have a strong impact on how we interact with our current world. Romantic relationships and partnerships are often the most important factor in our ability to cope with the difficulties we face. Our social relationships are also incredibly important for us to have the resources we need to meet our challenges. If we experience distress in any of these relationships this can be a crucial factor in our mental health. In addition, our location in society can also play a role in our mental health. We may have little influence over our age, race, spirituality, sexuality, gender roles, and even diagnoses that oppress us. Making meaning and understanding the ways in which these roles contribute to our story can be helpful, important, and often necessary to creating change in our lives. Let’s discover the path that will help you along your journey.
