You thought you had a pretty good lid on things, and then Covid hit. You feel lost, and there is a chaos inside you now. You used to be a little irritable, now the anger is white hot. When not angry or depressed, you are anxious and have a hard time concentrating. When you’re at work, you wish you were home, but when you’re at home, you can’t relax. Maybe you even have flashbacks. Maybe you drink too much. Things just keep on coming up, and your family and friends are kinda fed up too. They tell you not to worry about it, or even to just get over it! But you’re stuck.

I've found EMDR therapy to be effective and efficient in helping people who are wanting to let go of heaviness and fatigue related to intrusive or self limiting thoughts, often brought on by disturbing childhood events. For couples, I've found the John Gottman, Phd Marriage Institute material in giving couples the insight and tools the need to to get them "unstuck". With children age 2-7 years of age, I've found that they can "play out" their inner conflicts through Non-directive Play Therapy and find new levels of self-awareness, self acceptance and self control.

Everyone has the capacity to make positive changes whether they be large or small if they are motivated to do so. Therapy can be a helpful tool to help you acheive your goals and/or explore emotions that are difficult to deal with alone. I prefer to work collaboratively with my clients to develop a treatment plan that works. Therapy can be hard work and it's important that you are comfortable with how your treatment is progressing.

As a Certified Gottman Therapist, I specialize in helping couples navigate their relationships by applying advanced skills to explore their stuck places and rejoin in the friendship that brought them together in the first place. Over my 15+ years as a Marriage & Family Therapist, I have witnessed the kind of pain that couples experience in the repeated and frustrating tension cycle of “Here We Go Again”. This perpetual cycle includes each partner having a dream and not being understood - causing for a stalemate and disconnection. I sit with couples that need to explore their cycle for greater clarity and have a goal of change.

Life can be so unfair and being human is incredibly difficult, yet there is also so much beauty in life to experience as well! It can be exhausting to feel like you have to put on a front and be filtered in order to do life while suffering. Learning to find a way to hold and make sense of these contradictions can be a painful, confusing and complicated process! We often view things as being “either/or” when much of life is actually "both/and." My desire is to create a safe place for you to JUST BE…unfiltered…to help process, and receive rest for your soul and mind in order to heal and live life as your best self.
