I use Emotionally-Focused Therapy ( EFT ) to help you get underneath the argument and truly connect to one another.
You probably have a dream of how your relationship should feel- loving, connected, and safe enough to share the good and bad times. But lately, it's been hard to find much joy in because of all of the worry you're feeling. When you don't feel connected or safe in your relationship, everything else seems unimportant. Anxiety and anger can take over as you try to be heard. Instead of resolving conflict, it seems like you have the same fights over and over. It's exhausting and scary. You don't want to lose them, but you don't know what else to do.

I specialize in helping clients with chronic stress and anxiety, depression, perfectionism, self-worth and relationship issues. I offer an integrative and holistic approach to counseling that focuses on the individual and the relationship that I have with each client I work with. My priority is to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment where a client feels heard, seen and challenged to think outside their comfort zone, which enables self-exploration and personal growth. Some modalities that I draw from include attachment-based therapy, relational and emotionally focused therapy, and mindfulness interventions.

I enjoy helping couples discover the underlying emotions driving the discomfort and disconnection they are facing so that they may better understand one another. I use Emotionally-Focused Couples therapy ( EFT ) as my primary modality to helping couples break free from their unhealthy patterns and make lasting change.

I specialize in couples therapy using Emotion Focused Couples Therapy ( EFT ).
My desire is to help people heal themselves and their most important relationships. My primary therapy methodology is attachment theory. I believe that feeling securely connected to those most important to you is the foundation of growth and productivity. If you have found yourself stuck in an unhealthy repetitive cycle whether at work, home, or in your social circles, I'd love to help. It is difficult to deal with these without the knowledge of how to get out. I can help you identify the battles you are facing and ways to overcome them.

Emotionally Focused Therapists

Who is emotionally focused therapy for?

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is for couples who are emotionally distressed, stuck in an unsatisfying relationship pattern or feeling deeply alienated. They may even believe the relationship is beyond repair. Very often, the partners display intense anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal in the relationship. In addition, EFT is helpful to couples and individuals who have difficulty expressing emotions and those who have trouble regulating emotions.

Why do people need emotionally focused therapy?

People need emotionally focused therapy because the need for others is built into the brain, but the pressures of daily life can erode feelings of love, and couples often do not have the skills to find their way back to the comfort of each other. Instead, they may be stuck in repetitive patterns of anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal. Emotionally focused therapy regards such strong negative feelings as expressions of protest over the loss of connection and turns them into pathways of reconnection.

What happens in emotionally focused therapy?

Over the course of eight to 20 weekly sessions, couples de-escalate their negative emotional reactivity to one another so that they can listen to each other and be responsive to each other’s needs. Then the deep emotional and physical bond is restored, giving partners a sense of comfort and security, which they can use to solve whatever problems come their way. The therapist plays an active role, helping partners understand how anger and withdrawal are actually misguided cries for connection.

What problems does emotionally focused therapy treat?

EFT is designed to help couples stuck in dysfunctional relationship patterns regain closeness and rebuild their relationship. Typically, such couples experience considerable distress, with partners feeling alienated and distrustful of one another, not certain their relationship can survive. EFT is also helpful to individuals experiencing attachment-related fears of loss; it helps them learn to use their fears as a way of eliciting the closeness they desire.
