Therapy is a unique experience for each person. It helps you learn yourself, your relationships (past and present), and how you interact with the world. It is a place of self healing and understanding. It is a place to find safety and refuge to manage stress,anger, guilt, anxiety, overwhelming feelings, trauma, interpersonal conflict, and significant life events. I work with youth and adults to help address these issues. I am trained as a psychodynamic therapist, practicing from a relational standpoint. I use several clinical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, and trauma focused therapy as needed.

These feelings may be affecting your work, relationships, or health. I have worked with many individuals and couples who struggle with creating change long term. Whether you've tried therapy before or this is your first time, deciding to step outside your comfort zone and try something different is the first step to a more fulfilling life.

As your therapist, my goal is to help you recognize and become your best self. Together, we will come to a greater understanding of the fear, anxieties, and challenges you face and work towards discovering solutions. I specialize in working with couples in distress using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, created by Sue Johnson. We all get stuck in negative patterns of communication from time to time. When the destructive cycle takes permanent residence, it can feel horribly scary, isolating, and hopeless. But I've witnessed firsthand how EFT can be effective even with couples on the brink of despair.

It is normal to be an imperfect being. Everyone has struggles, low moments, or even sometimes have to divert off course due to unexpected life events. But when its your own thoughts and feelings that are impeding your ability to achieve what you define as "satisfaction" in life- you must take the time to stop, reflect, and possibly change either your approach or alter your perspective. Feel free to book a consultation. However, you do not have to engage a consultation to schedule an in person session. https://www.timetrade.com/book/3FLKG
