I have advanced certifications in DBT, Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and Families, and Relational Life Coaching.
During life's challenging moments, most of us benefit from the support of a non judgmental guide. People have told me they feel safe with me. Whether you are dealing with work/school stress, struggling with anxiety or depression, coping with parenting, experiencing loss, or are looking for support with a relationship, I can help you to better understand stuck areas in your life. I see individuals, couples, adolescents and families. I have an interactive, supportive, and open approach. When working with individuals, we will work together to gain greater self understanding and discover workable solutions.

We integrate traditional psychotherapy with coaching, mindfulness, EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Breathwork, Somatic work, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems and other evidence-based approaches through teletherapy.
My approach to therapy is to create a safe space where you can explore and heal the difficult and painful issues that are showing up in your life. Together we will move beyond problem-solving into releasing the deeply held mistaken beliefs and core unresolved issues behind your symptoms. My body-centered and somatic approach allows me to work directly with your nervous system to address symptoms like anxiety, racing thoughts, and irrational fears as well as feeling stuck, depressed and unavailable or unresponsive to life and relationships. I also supervise staff that can work with clients at a reduced rate.

I have received intensive training in Emotionally Focused Theory (EFT), an attachment-based model, which frames my work with both couples and individuals.
The key to our well-being is defining and developing a healthy relationship with ourselves and others. For over 20 years, I have worked with individuals and couples to establish therapeutic relationships based on safety, trust, and acceptance. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I’ve worked with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, loneliness, loss, relationship distress, and difficult life transitions. While formally trained in psychodynamic theory, my approach is flexible recognizing the unique needs and strengths of each individual.

I am pursuing certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couple therapy.
I find the most satisfaction working with those struggling with relationships - relationships with others as well your relationship with yourself. This struggle might express itself as feelings of emptiness, sadness, loneliness, disconnection, fear or anxiety, confusion, or meaninglessness. You might feel like you are floating through life without a map or destination. Alternatively, you might feel stuck or frozen within yourself. My goal is to work with you to help you define and understand these feelings, create the links and meanings of them, and ultimately to get you back moving on your life's roadmap.

When working with couples I work from an (EFT) Emotionally Focused Therapy framework.
***Currently not taking new clients *** Every person is seeking love and acceptance from one another. Life is meaningful when we connect with others. So, why is it so hard to navigate through relationships? Our culture, family of origin, and social expectations play an essential role in the ways we engage with others and influence our current struggles. We need love and acceptance for relationships to thrive, and so often we find ourselves in relationships where our needs are not being met. During our sessions, we will identify the underlying emotional needs and gain tools to communicate those needs to others.

If you are struggling with personal or family issues, I’m sure the larger context has made them even more complicated. A silver lining of the 2020 storm cloud is that the importance of mental health has been more broadly recognized. I hope you find the help you are seeking.

Therapy is about finding someone who "gets you", someone who can build trust and help you find your truth at an ever deeper level. I focus on attachment history, trauma, values and early experiences along with mindfulness practice, using the wisdom of the body to awaken to needs and emotions. Symptoms represent our wiring and our way of coping with the world. Getting past that takes a challenging, gentle, fully present partnership. I work with adults, high performers and college/grad students. Hearing each unique path -finding ways to stay alive and awake and engaged in this world on fire.

We are socially isolated, days are monotonous, and we miss physical closeness and freedom. Millennials have moved back in with family and lost their independence and sense of identity. Generation Zs lose out on graduation, team sports, friends and jobs lined up after school.

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. Evanston 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.
