Announcement icon I am offering virtual sessions through phone or video so clients can protect themselves during this difficult time.
I specialize in helping couples, families, and children. As human beings, we have a need to feel connected to a significant other who becomes like a safe haven and a source of security and comfort. This person helps us to face the world with confidence because we know there is someone who cares about us. When we feel disconnected from our attachment figure, we feel unprotected and life's challenges seem to be bigger and scarier. I help people to feel secure in their relationship by strengthening their bond so that they become responsive, accessible and emotionally engaged to their partners.
I am a certified emotionally focused therapist (EFT) and I am now being trained to become a supervisor to help other therapists to learn the model. EFT has a success rate of 73% with 90% of couples reporting improvement in their relationship. Most couples I work with reach their goals and become deeply connected to each other.
Relationships can be a source of happiness and fulfillment, but can also cause sorrow and sadness. The good news is that most relationships can be saved and people can feel connected to their loved ones. I want to give you hope and tell you that saving your relationship will positively affect every area of your life.
