My passion is serving couples, families and women. I have found I have had the most success in supporting women (emphasis on ages 18-30's), and the unique challenges we face. If you are struggling with negative self talk, difficulty putting yourself first aka saying "no" to others, or other difficulties creating anxiety, I'm here to listen & support. My other passion and area of success is serving couples and families (LGBTQIA+ affirming). Taking an emotionally focused approach, I'll support in finding the emotional root of the issues you see resurfacing, so cycles are put to an end & you feel at ease.

"Healing comes when we choose to walk away from darkness and move towards a brighter light." Dieter F. Uchtdorf's words echo the message I try to share with each of my clients. I work from a strengths-based perspective and believe each individual possesses unique skills and abilities to overcome struggles. I strive to create an environment of safety, allowing individuals to explore difficult issues by shining light on the situation and helping each person connect with their truth.

Through compassionate guidance and exploration, we strive to restore broken bonds with self and others. Corrective experiences in session help clients feel heard, accepted and validated- promoting lasting change and long term healing.

Working with individuals and couples to address discord and trauma, I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Enneagram and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Are you struggling? Are you isolating to avoid your feelings? Whether you are single or in a relationship these thoughts and feelings maybe persistent and maybe destroying your physical health as well as your mental stability. Do you sometimes think: “I feel like I’m walking through the valley of the shadow of doom” “the world is scary” “I feel like my partner isn’t listening to me” “I feel like my partner doesn’t even care” “I feel all alone”. Have you been thinking or feeling like this? Or does it feel like your relationship is “falling apart”? During this time of great unrest and uncertainty it can sometimes feel OVERWHELMING.

I also have training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT),.
Therapy provides a unique opportunity to develop a safe and supportive relationship to assist in creating meaningful change in your life. After years of training and practice I have come to realize that meaningful change must involve a deeper healing. As human beings we experience challenges throughout our lives that can feel overwhelming and often traumatic. Without the support, skills or resources in these times we end up needing to develop short term coping strategies that may be causing long term problems: anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, etc.

I am trained in PREPARE-ENRICH for premarital counseling, as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and EMDR.
I am passionate about creating a supportive, empathetic environment where my clients feel empowered and encouraged to open up and be their authentic selves. When we feel safe and accepted for who we are, we can step forward and be vulnerable, which in turn allows us to foster deeper connections with ourselves and our loved ones. This is the therapeutic environment that I strive towards, through a mixture of warmth, humor and authenticity. Together, we can work to understand attachment injuries that shape us and our relationships, and generate insight-based change. This space is for you.

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and am continuing to work towards certification for EFT.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at Therapy with Heart. I have a passion for empowering people to grow and make changes in their life. My style of therapy is unique because it focuses on working with you to find YOUR answers...whatever they may be. It takes courage to decide to enter therapy and until you feel safe and comfortable, it is challenging to create change. Therefore, I structure the session around mindfulness, emphasizing strengths, and collaborating together on the work.

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and basic training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) Level One, Gottman Level One, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
My deepest desire as a therapist is to support my clients in their journey to a more authentic, fulfilling, and hope-filled life. Throughout life, we often find ourselves stuck and uncertain of how to begin again. We may find ourselves struggling to connect with others or unsure of how to take those vulnerable risks needed to thrive. Whatever the sources of these stumbling blocks—childhood trauma, relational wounds, abuse—confronting them is daunting. Confronting them alone can be impossible. I am inspired by the courage taken by those who seek support to better themselves.

Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) helps couples navigate relational issues with up to a 75% success rate, making it one of the top approaches for helping partners.
I enjoy helping couples of all types heal, strengthen and enhance their relationships. By creating a warm and inviting environment through respect, humor and authentic relational connection, couples feel safe and welcome. This allows me to provide support for partners that feel lost or disconnected in their relationship and want to rediscover the love they have for each other. Feeling disconnected from our partner can cause emotional disharmony, which can greatly impact other areas of the relationship including intimacy, finances, and communication. ---------------------THERE IS HOPE!----------------------

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
