I am training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
I truly believe everything someone does makes sense in context. The thoughts one thinks, the emotions one feels, and the actions one takes are legitimate. How do we make sense of our own thoughts, feelings, and actions as well as those of our partners? My goal as a therapist is to create a safe, open space for couples, individuals, and families to explore their own vulnerabilities.

We practice the proven highly effective research based couples therapy model called Emotionally Focused Therapy developed by Sue Johnson.
I lead a group of specialists that help couples pull out of negative patterns of conflict and distress so they can become closer and more connected to one another. We understand that our need for secure connection is wired in us and when we can't feel connected in our most important relationships, it causes great distress. If it seems you are arguing over petty things, or feel distant and withdrawn, if your sexual connection isn't what it used to be or you are feeling like roommates, we can help create the safety needed to explore the underlying issues at the core so you can experience a loving, secure bond with one another.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which is considered the gold standard in marriage counseling.
Does it feel like you and your spouse are having the same fight over and over again? These recurring disagreements often provide little resolution, leaving us feeling misunderstood and disconnected. This relationship dynamic is not only frustrating, it starts to impact our own individual happiness and health. I assist couples by helping them step back and view their own relationship dynamic in a way that brings about their true voice and intentions in the moments of anger, blame, disconnection and withdrawal. In this way, each partner can begin to hear and experience one another in a way that builds intimacy, connection and hope.

I am particularly skilled working alongside pre-adolescents, adolescent, young adult females, and parents of teens, who feel stuck and in the trenches of family dynamics, significant relationships, life circumstances, and/or mental health conditions. Your teen may be desperately trying to find an outlet to channel their feelings. Are they overachievers pouring all their energy into school or sports? Does your teen feel lost, anxious, confused, or indecisive? Perhaps they bottle their anger, cut, or show you their rebellious side.

The decision to come to counseling is an important step. Often we feel alone in our struggles and the sense of isolation can drive us deeper into fear and shame. Coming to counseling and allowing ourselves to be known takes tremendous courage. Through my own experiences in counseling and in counseling others, I have come to believe that hope, redemption, and restoration can become a part of every person’s story. My approach to counseling is collaborative, holistic, and interactive. I have experience working with clients in most stages of life including individuals, couples, families, and adolescents.

Everyone wants to be themselves, to be “seen,” and to be valued for their uniqueness. We’re wired to need safe and affirming relationships and connection with others. When we’re struggling, it’s usually because something has gotten in the way of these things - not because we’re somehow "defective" or "flawed." I value authenticity, and strive to help clients feel and honor emotions that may seem “wrong" or unacceptable.

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. Knoxville 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.
