"My belief that the therapeutic relationship is the key element of successful treatment informs my practice. This working relationship, based on mutual trust and shared goals, allows for self-exploration and ultimately personal growth. In working with individuals, couples, families and/or groups I think that connecting the dots between past and present allows the client to have a better grasp on what is influencing her/his feelings and life choices leading to greater empowerment and life satisfaction."

"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 do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time.

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. Bethesda 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.
