Life can be challenging. Perhaps you are feeling stuck in your marital or relational issues. Maybe, you are feeling hopeless after the loss of a loved one or job. Or you might be wanting to grow personally and improve your relationships. When you need help and direction most, therapy can guide you through that darkness towards hope. I believe that anyone can excel when they have sufficient guidance and support. My areas of concentration are couples’ issues, family conflicts, life transitions, self-esteem, career development, anxiety, depression, grief, emotional healing, spiritual issues, and more.

I am certified in EFT, Emotionally Focused Therapy.

So much can get in the way of feeling close to those we love, and sometimes even to ourselves. All the many stressors we experience can leave us feeling like we don't have much left to give, and our relationships and well-being suffer as a result. But strong bonds with loved ones can be an amazing source of strength and healing. My work is primarily with couples who desire increased connection, and I also work with families and with individuals struggling in their relationships.

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. Fairfax 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.
