My primary model for working with couples is Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
"I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW WE GOT HERE." Sound familiar? It does to me, because I've heard it over and over in my office. By the time many couples make it into counseling, they feel disillusioned and angry, even hopeless. Please know, however, that there is hope! Research into relationships shows that couples can discover and change how they interact, leading to a restoration of the connection they once had, or the creation of the one they always wanted.

We value your courage as you look into counseling and we offer a safe and non-judgmental place for you to explore, heal and grow. Our therapists excel at authentic listening, compassion and empowerment. We are passionate about journeying alongside you so that you may live a life of hope, freedom and truth.

When I am in that dark abyss, I want someone comforting, yet skilled.  I want someone to listen and to “get” me, but I don’t want them to disempower me in the process.  I don’t want someone who thinks they are better than me because they “have a degree”.  I want someone that I can collaborate with to get new ways of looking at things, or that I can trust when they are guiding me to look at deeper issues within myself.  I don’t want to be diagnosed; I want someone to see that hidden spark that I am and to help me reignite that flame.  And it would be helpful if they had a sense of humor, a creative way of working with me and fur.

I specialize in working with survivors of trauma, eating disorders, and athletes of most ages. What helps people deeply heal are brain-based interventions that understand the nature of our nervous system and how people heal, whether that be from toxic stress, attention and concentration problems, mood, or anxiety. As such, I have dedicated my practice to learning these interventions and how to apply them. I take this same lens when working with athletes, whether that's to recover from an injury, treat a mental disorder, or learn to consistently perform optimally. I have experience treating ages as young as 6 through the lifespan.

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.
