Using EFT ( Emotionally Focused Therapy) - where relationships are everything - I help women and couples move from insecure relationships where they may feel abandoned, rejected, or alone to more secure ones where they experience a haven of safety.
You are made for connection. So why do you feel so disconnected from those who matter most? You find yourself on edge, angry or irritable with those you love. You have no one to lean on, no close relationship to trust. In your marriage, it feels more like you and your spouse are roommates. You feel like you’re struggling to focus on what needs to get done for the day. It’s a chore just to get out of bed. You’re wondering if this is what life is really all about. You feel so alone in your pain. It's all you can do to just keep functioning day after day. Things seem hopeless, you feel even God has left you alone.

I am certified as both an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist.
Life is filled with many challenges. Sometimes the struggles feel like they are more than we can handle, and we just need an outside ear, some temporary professional support. No matter what the challenges, there is hope. Depression, anxiety, combat related leftovers, sexual or physical abuse, relationship troubles, parenting, affairs, grief and loss, infertility, stress. I specialize in two therapies clinically proven to be effective in dealing with two of life's biggest challenges: Trauma and Relationship Difficulties. I also work with the anxiety and depression that plague so many.

It takes great courage to seek help. My vision is to develop a safe haven for all patients in knowing that having a healthy mental health and overall-being starts with a true knowledge and understanding of who you are in the Lord. John 16:33 says, "I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have (perfect) peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation, trials, distress and frustration; but be of good cheer (take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted)! For I have overcome the world. (I have deprived it of power to not harm you and have conquered it for you.)"

Are constant issues between you and your partner leading your relationship to a place of hopelessness? Are feelings of unhappiness causing you to lack motivation in doing the things you once enjoyed? Are unpleasant memories of a traumatic event creating nightmares or keeping you on edge? If this describes you, I believe I can help. Managing conflict in healthy ways helps restore hope in a relationship. Feeling good about yourself and the joys of life increase happiness and motivation to do what you desire. Learning to reduce stress levels in exposure to trauma helps you relax and focus on healing your mind, body, and spirit.

Earth shattering events leave us all shaken. Some of us bounce back quickly, while others take longer to heal. Sometimes we feel like we are rolling downhill with no brakes, like the bad news and life challenges just keep piling on. Others struggle with anxiety and depression or maybe you feel like your love switch is stuck on off or that you can't get out of a rut! Are you feeling stuck and wondering where to go from here? Are you experiencing emotional turmoil or anxiety that is interfering with everyday living? Do you feel like your life is spinning out of control?

There’s an old picture hanging in my office of a woman dressed in a white and blue cover up sitting with her legs crossed. She’s wearing an expression I’ve seen many times before. If she could talk she would say, “I don’t want to be here talking to you. You don’t know me and I don’t know you. I know what you do, you get me to talk, you have a plan for me but I have a better plan for you. I won’t tell you anything of note, and soon you’ll tire of me and I’ll be in the same boat.” During my many years in shelters and private practice I’ve worked with hundreds of these cases with much success. (The First Two Sessions Are Free.)

Licensed in FL & NC! Are you thinking that things are ok but they could be much better? Or at least, a lot less dark and stagnant? I know the importance of finding someone who lets you take your time, respects your emotional development and upholds your dignity. I want to help you make sense of the life that you have and turn it into the one you want. Growth looks different for all of us. What blocks us from it might not block everybody else, too. We are all doing the best we can and deserve the best not just for, but from ourselves. Do you want a helping hand and open heart to help you reconnect with the center of who you are?

Relationships should be where we find love, safety, and fulfillment. It is terrifying and heartbreaking to think that your marriage might end. There is a distance between you and your spouse that can no longer be ignored. Your family needs help to build and improve your connection with one another. Feeling desperate for a solution. You want so much more for yourself, your family, and/or your marriage.

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Having the willingness to bring yourself into the counseling room and sharing your deepest hurts with a stranger can be extremely difficult. Coming in with the openness and desire to get better without knowing how it is all going to work takes a lot of courage. A desire to get better is where it starts, the next step is showing up and allowing yourself to be vulnerable. I know it's scary, but you won't be walking this road alone. My job is to stand alongside you and help guide the steps to healing.

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. 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.
