"My office is a safe space for all individuals and couples. People look to counseling for a variety of reasons - anxiety, depression, dissatisfaction, misery. Those who find work with me helpful seek fuller understanding of themselves and their connections in the world. We take a compassionate and curious stance as we pay attention to you. Through the lens of attachment, we examine how your current experience of (in)security and safety influence your feelings and choices in adulthood. In couple work we look at repairing what interferes with meeting each partner's normal human need for safety and connection with one another."

"I work mostly with adults in transition. This includes midlife, family illness or death, starting a family, marriage, divorce, job loss, addictions, and other occurrences that serve as catalysts for growth. The growth process is often accompanied by exploration of seemingly unrelated concerns including sexual identity, religious and spiritual values, and changes in relationships. You guide most of our sessions. I reflect what I observe and we explore your reactions. In therapy we clarify what you want in your life, what is working, and what you might choose to adjust. The process can be frightening and painful but also exciting."

"If this is your first time in therapy, welcome! And for whose that might be thinking "should I start therapy again", welcome back! I could assume that you are imagining that talking to a stranger about things that make you feel uncomfortable, seems pretty intimidating. This is all normal, and somewhat part of the process. In my practice, we will discuss the moments where you felt anger, sadness, embarrassment, and uncertainty. We will explore your strengthens, ambitions, and goals in life. To start the healing process of therapy, it should be challenging and different, and could also be one of the most enjoyable parts of your week."

"Therapy is about diving deep into those places where we get stuck and find conflict both internal and external. I often work with folks who see life as driven by how they experience life acting on them versus how they can engage it differently. It takes commitment and courage to become self-aware and actively ask and act on what they want different from life. I seek to provide a space for clients to be real and authentic. I help folks rewrite internal narratives to achieve the life and relationships they want. I offer therapy in both English & Spanish."

"Depression, anxiety, and the impact of trauma in our life and story often prevents us from living the life we yearn for. Martin Buber once said, “All real living is meeting.” We humans seem built for connection, for meeting, for encounter. We thrive when we are able to deeply see and be seen by another. Yet, all humans also experience barriers to connection. How can psychotherapy help? Psychotherapy can become a place to experience belonging and attunement, to discover ways there have been maladaptive patterns of disconnection in your life, and to imagine new ways of living that will bring you relational healing."

Do you find yourself asking questions, "Why haven't things changed? What is wrong with me? Will I ever find happiness?" In many cases, the external changes are not enough.

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. Seattle 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.
