I take an integrative approach to therapy but mainly use therapies focused on emotion and attachment such as Internal Family Systems and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, struggling with getting through your day-to-day, or having difficulty navigating relationships, I may be a good fit for you. I primarily work with teens, young adults, and adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relational difficulties, and issues related to trauma history.

I, along with my wife, own and operate The Art of Living Counseling Center. We are focused on creating therapeutic environments where clients are invited deeper into their personal story for purposes of healing and empowerment. We use the dynamic metaphor of Story to help guide and organize the therapeutic process. Using this narrative approach, clients come to understand that they were given powerful stories that shaped and guided their development as a person. These stories impact one’s sense of self, relationships and family life. Therapy progresses as clients gain greater awareness of these inner storylines and their impact.

Are there certain aspects of your life that you wish could be different or obstacles that are deterring you on your path? Are you offering the best version of yourself in your relationship with others? Do you ever question what it would mean to embrace the "real you"? We all have our own course to walk in this unique journey called life. But we also have the potential to change our direction at any time. The direction is determined by how we perceive our journey, and by the choices that we make as a result of those perceptions. Once we understand this concept, the potential for change becomes limitless!

Our life's work is helping clients achieve a better sense of self and happiness...more recently we've recognized that without good mental health providers finding this balance in life can be more difficult and stressful. As a result, we tend toward and Integrative approach and have our clients transform into the people they want to be. We see each client as an individual with many parts to their identity. Utilizing a holistic and systemic approach we help clients reintegrate the parts of themselves to function better as individuals and within their systems. Our focus tends toward a systems-based approach using behavior methods.

Dr. Bauman partners with patients dealing with issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, adjustment disorders, and relationship issues. It is typical for her to work with couples and/or families, but she often works with individuals as well. Therapy can help to solve problems, make decisions, set goals, reduce stress, and empower you to maintain a resilient approach to your life circumstances. Each person has strengths and weaknesses. Therapy works with both of these aspects, to help improve your life situation. Therapy isn't magic but it may seem magical when we collaborate together and change occurs!

“Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you”- Robin Sharma. Robin Sharma's words echo in many ways what occurs within the therapeutic relationship. When we invest in ourselves through the work we do in therapy, we are more likely to make decisions that impact us for the better. This not only improves our quality of life, but it enriches our interactions with others. The ideal client would be an individual who is aware they need change, but are not sure as to how to go about creating it for themselves.

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. Crystal Lake 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.
