Our connections to one another and the communities we work and play in are foundational to our health and well-being. It is through relationship that we learn about ourselves and how best to be in relationship with others. At times, stress can threaten to overwhelm, priorities can become unclear and uncertainties can mount. We all benefit from a consistent and trusting relationship in which to identify our feelings, thoughts and behaviors, to be supported in our efforts to determine and utilize our own strengths and resources, to build our coping strategies, and begin to create the change we choose to work on in any stage of life

Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better!

I work with adults, adolescents and children in psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis. The approach taken respects each person's individuality and the work is done in ways that are suited to each person's style and personality. The frequency and duration of treatment depends on the unique needs of each person - for example, a person may be seeking short-term therapy to deal with a school or work transition, while another person may be seeking longer term treatment to understand longstanding emotional pain or a pattern of unsuccessful relationships.

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. 20815 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.
