I believe one of the bravest things you can do is take that first step in beginning to understand your own story. You may be feeling like no matter what you do, you cannot live up to the expectations of what others want you to be. Maybe you feel especially anxious and overwhelmed about what is happening in your life, making it seem like things are spiraling out of control. You may even feel like you want to take control of your life but have no clue where to start or are overpowered by fear.

The type of therapy I practice is about who you are as a person, not just a particular diagnosis you may have. We all struggle at times, whether with unfulfilling relationships, challenges in our professional lives, how we feel about ourselves, or other issues. When we first meet, my goal is to try to understand and appreciate the full context of your situation and not solely the troubling symptoms. I work hard to create a safe, warm, trusting environment. Over time, I'll help you uncover patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may contribute to your current problem.

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. Washington 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.
