Perhaps you are experiencing discomfort in one or many of your relationships or are just feeling generally out of control or down. You do not have to navigate these difficult feelings and trying moments alone, we can instead face them together. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to support you. We can work to identify relationship or behavioral patterns that may have fallen into your blindspots and face the negative feelings together. Through this insight and self-discovery, we will explore your past safely together to make sense of your present and support you in building a fulfilling and meaningful future.
I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which means I have completed intensified year long training and supervision in my work with couples. I am a member of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy and attend continuous trainings and supervision throughout the year.
I believe therapy is most successful when the we are partners in exploring the client’s inner world together. My approach is empathic and curious, while also direct, and I try to incorporate warmth and humor into the session. I seek to empower clients to take control of their behaviors and to understand the why behind certain feelings and repeated cycles.
