About My Clients

It may feel like your relationship is in pieces with no clear path how to put it back together. You may feel like you can’t survive one more fight like the one you guys just had, or it might feel like you can’t suffer in silence anymore. Whether it feels like you are constantly fighting, or it feels like you are “room mates”, I can help. I strive to comprehend the distinct position each person find themselves. My commitment is to support and guide couples and families through these challenges.

My Background and Approach

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and use this modality for the basis of my practice. In EFT we use the present moment to resolve the connection issues that couples experience. Typically, I see the couples together for a session then individually for a session. This gives us a better picture of the whole before we continue therapy as couple. I place great value on the intricate web of connections we have—with ourselves, our minds, bodies, spirits, and each other. My goal is to enhance self-worth and efficacy within the organic framework of an individual's connections. Whether you are coming as an individual, a couple, or a family contending with life's demands, I invite you to bring your concerns.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that relationships are the key to self improvement. We see who we are as we see our reflection in others. Self improvement and awareness does not happen in a vacuum. We are all apart of a system. The relationships we are in is a system. We all have pains that cause us to feel the way we do. These pains determine how we act. Our partner does too. The way we respond to each other can trigger these feelings. Often we get caught in this cycle. Each system has a cycle. I believe in identifying these cycles, identifying these pains in relation to the cycle, and developing the individuals understanding of the cycle and emotions. Once we can see the cycle for what it is and be able to feel the feelings we have, with our partner, we can slow the cycle down enough to see and be seen by ourselves and our partner. Being seen, felt and heard creates a health relationship.
