My desire in becoming a counselor came out of my own individual and relationship recovery work and healing journey.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Round Rock, TX
I have worked with couples and individuals for 15 years. Having been married for 30 years, I bring real life experience along with counseling expertise to each and every therapy session with you and your partner. I have trained extensively in, and continue to study, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an exciting research-based model of therapy that focuses on restoring relationships by strengthening core connections between loved ones.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples targets the emotional bond of the couple, whereas other models of couples therapy focus on behaviors or communication techniques. EFT goes for the roots, not just the leaves.EFT does not take sides. Often couples think that the therapist is going to define who is right and who is wrong, but EFT is not a judge. EFT looks at the dance, the role each person plays in getting disconnected, and how to change the music.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve and reduce past traumatic stress. It is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR therapy has proven to be effective in treating trauma and PTSD. It may also be able to help treat other mental conditions like anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
