I am passionate about couples counseling. I help couples process and understand their emotions, communicate their needs and wants effectively, be completely vulnerable without fear, recognize and change destructive patterns within their relationship, and have the marriage they envisioned. My mission as a therapist is to bring emotional intelligence and healing so that my clients can feel worthy of life and love, and be completely vulnerable in and out of the therapy sessions. I believe that all couples can possess a marital relationship of safety, trust, love, and grace.

My approach to counseling is rooted in the belief that all individuals are capable of an empathic, supportive, and genuine relationship. My framework is from an attachment based approach known as Emotionally-Focused Therapy. I believe that emotion and attachment are the core issues to many of life struggles.

I strongly believe that healthy individuals result in healthy relationships and families. My desire as a therapist is to bring emotional understanding and healing to all individuals, couples, and families so that future generations have secure attachments and emotional health to live fulfilling and meaningful lives.

You will experience the foundations of mindfulness (Vipassana) meditation, learn to notice & recognize emotions, thoughts, & bodily sensations as they arise, experience the pleasure of mindful eating, take a stroll through nature on a mindful walk, hear from mindful experts, & become more centered. You will walk away from this group with tools that will serve you for the rest of your life.
