Do you believe healing is sacred work? To me, psychotherapy and spirituality are symbiotic paths - both essential for maturity and happiness. I provide psychospiritual therapy and specialize in supporting people who have a love for the sacred AND for healing their conditioned patterns - including trauma. I offer psychospiritual practices that nourish the mind, heart, body and spirit. We are born happy but get conditioned by stress and trauma to distrust everything - especially our own truth. To remember happiness - I invite nourishing experiences of trust, responsibility, love, beauty, and deep relaxation.

Life can be challenging. For adults those challenges can include parenting, relationships, job stress, overwhelming emotions, life transitions, and many more. Challenges for children and teens can include school-related issues like academic stress, bullying, peer pressure, general "drama", and others. Ultimately, we are all searching for safety, satisfaction and fulfillment in our lives. Often, however, we are unsure how to deal with the challenges that prevent us from finding what we're searching for. It can be hard to know where to turn for help and hard to ask for that help.

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. Asheville 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.
