About My Clients

You're not sure when or how it happened, but there's a growing distance in your relationship with your partner. The connection with your partner seems to gradually wither away as the arguments and disagreements pile on. You sometimes look at the pieces that remain of your relationship, and you wonder how to put them back together. You are desperately fighting for reconnection, intimacy, and security-- all you need is a map. Attachment theory is that map for you to find your way back together.

My Background and Approach

With attachment theory as the map to reconnection, I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) as my compass in helping couples overcome the tricky terrain of disconnection, hurt, and betrayal. With attachment theory as the foundation for EFT, we will work together to deescalate and restructure the bond in the relationship. From this foundation, our work will go a step further and organize the emotion as the core component that so many couples find themselves lost in. The true power in EFT is how it allows for emotion and attachment fears, needs and longings, to finally be seen, heard, and felt. I can be your guide through this process of healing, reconnecting, and bonding.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a firm believer that all humans are social, bonding creatures with an inherent motivation for growth. Our growth or need to attach can become complicated, stunted, or frozen throughout the lifespan due to trauma or adverse challenges. Our attachment wounds or injuries can often show up in our safest relationships, which can be a sign that it is time to process and heal. I believe in the incredible healing capacity that is possible within the context of an accessible, responsive, and emotionally engaged relationship.
