I use Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples and also have a background in communication skills, attachment parenting, bereavement , and trauma.
My approach to therapy is to help my clients work their way through the layers of injury, loss and protection that surround them, to reach the more open, undefended core inside. I believe it is the experiencing of that deepest part of ourselves which makes us feel alive and makes us feel connected to ourselves and others. I work to create a safe, compassionate environment in which healing can happen in moments and over time. I work with couples and individuals to help them recognize and alter the patterns that seem to get them stuck in their relationships.

I am a practical therapist helping clients deal with their relationships, addiction, depression, anxiety,job stress, loneliness, anger, grief . I work with women as they face their unique challenges including childbirth, miscarriage, menopause, and so much more. I have extended experience and compassion working with those who struggle with addiction or live with someone who does. I also focus my practice to help individuals, couples, and families cope with life challenges. I offer a warm and nonjudgmental atmosphere where you can share your dreams and hopes. Although there may be tears, I also believe in sharing laughter. Both are healing.

Have you suffered a loss , experienced some traumatic event or lived through an unexpected change or transition? Are you feeling lost, missing a connection with yourself and/or others? Or, are you finding yourself stuck in unhelpful patterns in your relationships, school/work, and the ways you see yourself? I see psychotherapy as an opportunity for you to be with yourself - authentically and constructively. My intention is to create a safe place where you can experience solace, explore solutions creatively, and discover your needs while learning how to ask for them.

"The deep learning that results in transformation must include the healing of hearts and souls. When spirit is thirsty, it is love, compassion, and truth that quench and satisfy." ~ audrey lorde ~ When we can be compassionate to our growth areas and be grounded in owning our talents and gifts, it may be easier to navigate our challenges and be open to opportunities. When we experience challenges we may need support to work through them. We can use these challenges as opportunities to renew and transform ourselves to have a better relationship with ourselves and others.

Anyone who has ever experienced trauma cannot overlook the excruciating pain and fear it instills in the body and mind. Such pain, if left unattended may morph into depression, anxiety, chronic physical pain, and profound sense of loss and continuous grief . It can mask our identity and destroy our lifestyle. We turn out to be disoriented, stuck, and confined. Our lives become foreign to us. We find ourselves witnessing its broadcast, as opposed to fully experiencing it in the moment. Hence, we turn to our defenses in the form of compensatory behaviors, such as addiction and compulsions or lose the meaning of life.

I provide psychotherapy services for adults and adolescents. Life is messy, and being human can be painful. Sometimes we may feel hopeless. Sometimes we may feel saturated in shame or self-doubt. Sometimes we may feel overwhelmed with depression, anxiety, grief , anger, loneliness, or the reverberations of past experiences. These feelings and experiences can leave us with emotional bumps and bruising that impact the way we move through the world, relate to others, and relate to ourselves. Healing is possible. I believe we all share the innate capacity to heal, grow and feel whole.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
