I have a heart to help people who are hurting and looking for relief, change, and hope. Maybe you're looking at life right now and it looks bleak, but you don't know what's wrong and much less how to fix it, or maybe you know exactly what your problem is, but you don’t know what to do about it or you just need an unbiased ear to sit with you, listen to you, and walk through the struggle with you as we work to find a solution. Regardless of your situation, I would love to help.

Based on my education of Family Systems Theory, I believe that individual issues are often linked to past or present familial dysfunction. By identifying the roots of issues, my hope is that in the future you will have a greater ability to cope with stressful situations. Trauma is often an invisible wall that keeps us from recognizing our true selves. By breaking through this wall, we can plant new beginnings and obtain a better understanding of the world in which we live. Anxiety, depression, addiction, etc are all reactions to your story. Is it time to tell yours?

My primary focus is working with men, women, and couples. With that focus, I’ve had experience working with substance and process addictions, eating disorders, professionals, other compulsive or problematic behaviors, and general mental health struggles, such as anxiety or depression. My passion is working with those struggling with healthy intimacy, appropriate attachment, and relational issues. Just with those three things can come so much confusion, hurt, and sadness. With help and growth, there can be healing, hope, and strength. I believe while we often get hurt in relationships, we can also be healed in relationships.

Being trapped in the throes of addiction, relational conflict, trauma, and crippling shame can seem so scary, lonely, and hopeless. It is heartbreaking to envision the person we wanted to become or the relationships we desired to have, but the messiness of life circumstances has made both of these things feel out of reach. We so desperately want to be known and seen for the beautiful, unique, creations that we all are; however, we assume and fear that no one else cares to embrace us and understand us as we are, so we feel pressured to settle for who everyone wants us to be. It's exhausting. Would you rather thrive than just survive?

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. Monroe 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.
