My work is heavily influenced by John Gottman's research as well as Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Would you like to improve your relationships? Your job? Or other life situations? I strive to help clients experience immediate relief from problems by shifting perspective and working on the development of new skills. Life transitions like a new relationship, loss, marriage, divorce or job change can be challenging and may require outside help. I provide an unconditionally accepting environment to help you explore solutions that lead to meaningful, long-term results.

I am a therapist and co-founder of Newtown Family Therapy. As a therapist I am passionate about empowering you to gain insight into the road blocks that have been preventing you from moving forward and feeling whole. My practice was born out of a desire to connect to a community in need of healing and out of a desire to do more than today's world of managed care and short term therapy allows. Newtown Family Therapy is a practice where all are welcome and encouraged to share their story with the goal of finding peace, balance, and wellness.

Sometimes life becomes overwhelming due to trauma, increased anxiety and depressive symptoms leading us to believe there is something inherently wrong with us. We sometimes forget that we have the power to change our situation and circumstances. My goal is not to just treat the symptoms, but rather uncover the underlying root cause that triggered these symptoms and empower you to move forward in a positive direction. Treating the symptoms alone may cause the issue to present itself again.

Life sometimes presents us with challenges that can feel overwhelming and we find ourselves at an emotional impasse. As an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor, I believe in fostering a collaborative relationship that is rooted in safety, respect, trust and empathy. During the course of therapy, I offer an accepting environment that opens possibilities for noticing patterns of daily functioning that are not working or are limiting potential. I consider that it is essential to validate my client's uniqueness to develop insight and encourage personal growth and healing of mind, body and spirit.

You have taken the first step to explore accepting help/therapy and I welcome the opportunity to meet you and work with you. This has been a very challenging time for us all. The issues which were troubling you: stress in your relationships with family and friends or life changes/separation, divorce, retirement, illness or loss may have intensified during this pandemic. I offer daytime, evening and week-end hours and now with more people getting their vaccinations you may prefer a hybrid model of therapy in my office and telehealth.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
