"Often my clients seek freedom from familiar and painful moods, traumatic experiences, intrusive worries, or self-defeating patterns. They want to experience greater health and well-being, at work, home, and everywhere in between. They know how to survive and are full of strengths, however, may not always notice them. Although they will find it difficult to reach out for help, they courageously do so anyway."

"Life has ups and downs; many times we negotiate these with our own skills and support from others. Sometimes, however, the burdens feel like more than we can handle. Sometimes we just feel alone and misunderstood, even by those that usually support us. We may even start to question what we know about ourselves. It is at these times that therapy may be especially helpful. Therapy can assist you in better understanding yourself and the challenges you are facing. This awareness empowers you to make healthy changes and develop new skills and strengths."

"I believe that all humans are innately driven to seek balance and congruence, and that when this drive is disrupted, whether it be due to emotional difficulties, relational stressors, or other life changes, we begin to suffer. It is my privilege to accompany my clients in their process of establishing balance and integration, ultimately achieving a sense of wholeness and security. I recognize that sometimes talk therapy isn't enough so I use a variety of additional therapies, including EMDR, which facilitate change by reprocessing emotionally-charged memories or experiences that often show up as physical sensations in the body."

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. Traverse City 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.
