My work with couples focuses on repairing the emotional bond that has been stressed by infidelity, conflict or miscommunication.
As a therapist at Mindful Heart Counseling Center, I work with couples and individuals who are struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, and life-transitions. The stress of coping with what’s happening in your life (especially during COVID) can be overwhelming and I’m here to help you find relief and learn skills to build resilience. I strive to help my clients live mindfully and find peace in the present moment. I approach therapy from a mindfulness-based perspective, which means we focus on gathering a better understanding of our thoughts and behaviors by exploring our emotions without judgement.

My passion is in couples work, trauma processing, and the intersection of the two. These relational challenges profoundly impact many aspects of life, from our ability to focus to our happiness and contentment in life. The good news is that it doesn't have to be like this, you can reconnect with yourself and the ones you love. While I teach communication skills and coping strategies to help you feel stabilized, I also believe in the power of exploring oneself deeply to create lasting change.

I have advanced training in Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Developmental Couples Therapy, and I use a variety of therapeutic approaches within a supportive, client-centered context.
For the 22 last years I have worked successfully with adult clients dealing with a wide range of issues including marital and relationship problems, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, abuse issues, personality issues and mental health concerns. I believe a trusting relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation for all growth and change. However, the relationship itself is typically not sufficient. I will help you set goals for your therapy based upon what you would like to have different in your life, and together we will explore and change the blocks which have prevented you from achieving your goals.

I tend to work with individuals and couples in a collaborative way. I attempt to assess what the goals are and explore how to get there. Generally, I see the work in a couple of phases: establishing a safe, supportive environment and secondly, attempting to provide insight for those I work with. Insight is part of it, then one must attempt to deal with some of the inevitable challenges of changing. To this end, a collaborative relationship allows for us to work at the Client's pace, with perhaps, some occasional supportive nudging.

As a specialist in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples , I offer help to reconnect with your partner, develop a clear understanding of one another's needs, heal relationship wounds such as infidelity, deepen your intimate connection and support you on the path towards a closer, stronger, happier relationship.
The heart of my work with individual adults is to help you explore your inner emotional experience, identify negative, self-defeating beliefs and learn skills that will help you to respond, rather than react, to life situations. Our work together provides the space and guidance to develop greater self-awareness and compassion for yourself, while working through difficult issues of past and present. This approach can be helpful for anxiety and depression as well as experiencing deeper meaning in life.
