Are you experiencing feelings of hopelessness, depression, anxiousness, or becoming overwhelmed? Have you been experiencing a lack of community and connection, difficulty with family relations, or a loss of sense of self? These are just a few of the many challenge’s life can bring us. It can be even more difficult to navigate these challenges with minimal support or without the necessary coping strategies in place. It takes courage to seek out and ask for help in your journey towards healing. I value the importance of establishing a trusting therapeutic relationship in order to move towards healing.

***IMMEDIATE TELEHEALTH OPENINGS*** We are all in the midst of a challenging transition with so many unknowns. We're trying to figure out how to hold onto ourselves, what we know, and the things that we hold dear. It's all so unfamiliar and filled with whirlingly uncomfortable emotions. It may seem like too much to even get your head and heart around. My passion lies in supporting and empowering people to bravely move through the complex transitions that come up in their lives - divorce, shifting away from codependency, and pandemic stress; I am part therapist, holding space for life's ambiguities, and part coach, cheering you on.

I believe strongly in the power of human resilience and believe our relationships are a key factor in this. As a marriage and family therapist, I enjoy working with adults, couples and families. I have experience working in a treatment setting for chemical dependency and complex trauma, where I gained experience in using somatic approaches such as EMDR Accelerated Resolution Therapy and inner child work to help individuals overcome childhood wounds to be more present and functional in their current lives and relationships. I am also an AAMFT approved supervisor and with current openings for individual, dyad or group supervision.

People usually come to therapy with a longing to be more strongly connected to those they love and to themselves. In therapy, people begin to notice and deconstruct old patterns that unknowingly create barriers to intimacy. It is also an opportunity to make important decisions about one's purpose in life, to prioritize and clarify work, love, parenting and creativity. There is often unknown or unfinished grief or loss that complicates and confuses people. I believe everyone has the capacity to change, to create a more fulfilling life if there is willingness to be open and vulnerable with yourself.

If we better understand where we are in the present and what we want to integrate in the future, we can take fruitful action to instill change in our lives.

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. Minneapolis 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.
