My approach is attachment based/ Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
You probably heard the saying, “Falling in love is easy but staying in love is hard.” Relationships take hard work to maintain and they require skills that most of us don’t learn from our parents. When we start working together, I will provide a safe place for both of you, where we will jump start the healing process. You will gain insight into the patterns in your relationship, learn how to communicate more effectively, express inner most feelings to each other, identify each other's unmet needs and how to get your needs met from one another, rekindle love, and heal from past traumatic relationship experiences such as infidelity.

I am also training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help couples restore their emotional bonds, relieve distress, and deepen in intimacy with one another.
I believe the pathways to healing are through our intimate relationships with each other. But because few of us have experienced what it feels like to reach toward the soft embrace of another, and also be held, loved, and received just as we are, how we see and what we tell ourselves in response to life's struggles can become distorted. We develop false senses of self and of others; we wrestle with depression, anxiety, and obsessional thinking. We fall prey to addictions, and we struggle in our relationships, finding ourselves in patterns that bring conflict and disconnection.

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.
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 understand that life's transitions often come with the obvious changes in ones perspective, in ones relationships, and in ones lifestyle, but transitions also come with more hidden emotional changes. These usually surface as sleepless nights, fights with people you care about, mood instability, and a feeling of sadness or dissatisfaction with life. On your own, it is difficult to untangle the complex puzzle that underlies these ongoing issues and acknowledge these emotional changes. Together we can uncover the root of your emotional challenges using emotionally focused therapy in a compassionate and supportive environment.

I use practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, validation, insight, socratic questioning, breathing exercises, exposure therapy, mindfulness, and shame resilience to helping others overcome cognitive and emotional obstacles toward improving the view of the self or creating behavioral change.
I take a dynamic approach, helping others through developing the courage and confidence to build new skills, change unhelpful views of the self, and increasing insight and understanding and acceptance of where you are, while working toward where you want to be. The more open and willing you are to share, the better we can work together to come to a shared plan, view of the problem and work toward more distress tolerance.

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.
