"We all get stuck, but we don't have to stay that way. Therapy is a place for new beginnings. Beginning to learn about ourselves. Beginning to increase self-love and appreciation. Beginning to heal. I believe all individuals are unique, thus therapy is not a one size fits all. I aim to meet each client where they are, with understanding and a strong therapeutic relationship as the foundation for a transformative process. Most of us are doing the best we can with what we've received from our loved ones and early experiences, my goal is to have you leave with more, and for your best to only get better."

"It hurts to feel disconnected from your partner, parent, or child. And sometimes the harder you both try to close that distance, the farther apart and more lonely you both end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective relationship strategies, because you don't know what else to do! Or maybe you just give up. If yours is like most relationships, you're already spending enough time and effort trying to make it work -- you're just spending it in the wrong way. I can help you redirect your efforts using an approach called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)."

"Daily relationship struggles, or "walking on egg shells" around your partner is not mentally or physically healthy; it is emotionally draining. This emotional stress will prevent the secure attachment that promotes comfort, support and love. Instead of turning toward each other during difficult times, separation and resentment will develop. When you and your partner are confident that you have each others back - then you will take on challenges together and reap the benefits of a secure partnership! Emotional stress can promote feelings of depression and anxiety; causing you to question your choices instead of being confident with your decisions."
