I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy as well and family therapy.
I love serving couples. Everyone in relationship gets stuck at times. For some of us, that stuck place seems impossible, hurtful, or even hopeless. We all need relationships. Close, intimate relationships, solid relationships of security and safety, relationships that give us purpose and meaning. They don't always come from one place. I love to help people find relationships, restore relationships, and find vitality and health in their best selves through relationships.

I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy to help help individuals connect with themselves and others. Before becoming a therapist, I had extensive experience working with parents and their children (birth through teenage years). Much of this has carried over into the therapy room with couples and families. I am passionate about helping individuals grow and heal while they navigate the everyday tasks of careers, family life, and being in relationship with others.

I believe in you. You’ve made it here, which means you’ve already taken action for change. Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered on your path to well being. You do not need to be on this journey alone. As a therapist, my goal is to understand your goals as deeply as possible. This will mean changing the way you think, feel, and act on a daily basis. Over time you'll develop useful strategies to modify your thoughts and behaviors. We will know our work is done when you are thriving in the life that you envision. You will take our work with you after we end and reap the benefits throughout your life.

I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. My theoretical orientation is influenced by Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Emotionally-Focused, Humanistic-Experiential, and Narrative approaches to treatment. This means that we will be going on an emotional journey together in which I will use an eclectic combination of clinical theories and techniques to help guide my work. I believe that the lack of emotional awareness and avoiding uncomfortable emotions can cause harm to our mind, body, and soul. My hope is to help you get to know yourself better and learn how

I come from an Emotionally Focused Therapy perspective. I believe that all people were created with the need to know and be known by others. I am passionate about working with clients to help them understand their emotional needs for closeness and connection, how unmet needs cause disconnection, and how more helpful ways of relating to one another are possible. My hope for all my clients is that they would experience healing and renewed closeness in their relationships with themselves and others. I believe this begins when you are feeling the safety and freedom to share what is really going on inside.

Couple's sessions are structured using the principles of Emotionally Focused Therapy and Adult Attachment theory.
I offer clients a supportive, caring environment to identify solutions for growth and well-being. Together we can identify specific problems and create common sense strategies that have high probabilities of success. The areas often discussed in therapy include relationships, substance abuse, career frustrations and one's own experience of psychological symptoms most commonly anxiety and depression. By approaching psychotherapy through a person-centered, solution-focused, skills based perspective, I can assist individuals from diverse backgrounds. Our common goal is to create a path toward a quality of life that increases a sense of well-being, balance and happiness.

Hello! I’m so glad you’re here. Deciding to reach out for support is a challenging but important step toward creating a life of meaning, satisfaction, and joy. Therapy is a place to express and unpack complicated feelings and negative thoughts and to practice new ways of relating and responding to yourself and others. Following treatment with me, clients typically report understanding themselves more fully, increased self-compassion and empathy, and richer, healthier communication with peers and loved ones. I care deeply about my clients and will be an active participant in helping you to create desired change.
