My approach is integrative, strengths-based, and crafted to meet my clients' needs, drawing from cognitive behavioral therapy, emotionally focused therapy for couples, EMDR, and the mind-body connection among other therapeutic techniques.
I believe in the beautiful complexity of humans and in human fortitude to navigate what hurts. As a therapist, I am here to help deepen your understanding of the wonder and the pain within your meaningful story and make space for something new. Reaching for support takes courage; I will meet you on your path, assess your needs, and together, help healing unfold in a warm, safe, and encouraging space. I have expertise and a special dedication to those managing perinatal challenges. I also work with those coping with anxiety, trauma, depression, grief, the myriad of life’s transitions, and the unique experience of first responders.

I have completed an externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy through the Ackerman Institute for the Family.
As a psychotherapist, I feel privileged to work with people as they explore the challenges that bring them to treatment. I understand that it takes courage and vulnerability to take the first steps to contact a clinician and come to therapy. It is important to me that you feel safe during our work and that our collaboration is a good match for you. A positive therapeutic relationship creates the opportunity for insight, growth and fulfillment. I am an interactive therapist, who facilitates a treatment environment that is empathic, warm and supportive. I treat adolescents, adults and couples and provide both short and long-term treatment.

As a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist, I guide clients through insights and experiences of relationship dynamics, understanding how we humans behave in logical, predictable ways to address our needs, yet miss each other and disconnect in times of distress. You will grow to understand and experience your marital or family distress in new ways, finding new solutions to old patterns of disconnection. For individuals, we explore patterns within ourselves, and with others, strengthening your self-esteem and self-worth. I also provide therapists exploration of themselves in the context of their own work and life.

Here's the scoop. I am not the kind of therapist that quietly takes notes and now and then asks you "How does that make you feel?" Bottom line? Let me tell you about my specialty. My specialty is YOU. I am not invested in keeping you in therapy for years on end. I am ridiculously easy to talk to. I have a unique style which is interpersonal, respectful and creative. If you have felt stuck with former therapists, take a chance with me. I look through a different lens. Are these paragraphs starting to all sound the same? TECHNIQUES DON'T WORK - A SOLID RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR THERAPIST DOES!

Things at home are more stressful than ever—trying to find balance in the midst of endless demands is overwhelming. You are doing all you can to keep a sense of normalcy, but the whole family is on edge, especially you and your partner. Certain pre-existing relational dynamics are now magnified and there’s a storm brewing inside of you. You're feeling angry, resentful and unsupported. You know you play a part in this dance, you’re ready to roll up your sleeves to right this ship, but can’t do it alone anymore. There's a part of you that knows you could be better and another part that is so lost. You need some clarity and guidance.

Much of my practice technique works to restore self esteem and dignity which are problems as a result of trauma and addiction. My personal experience is conducive to the work that takes place. I create a positive therapeutic alliance that is safe, and confidential. Addictions are treatable. Everyone can get sober, and in doing so you can live a "Quality of Life" that you deserve. Make the call and we can discuss your situation, confidentially and together make a plan to get; "Clean and Sober ". My promise to you that we can make it affordable.

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.
