I believe healing is possible through an invitation to connect with your body, emotions, and thoughts. To build understanding about how your experiences, relationships, and culture have impacted your life. I seek to be a companion in the process of sharing your personal story as you sift through the well of your entire lived experience to discover your authentic voice. Together, we will use body based interventions, emotionally focused work, and brain-based approaches like EMDR to reclaim the chapters of your life where difficult experiences stole your sense of who you are, and nurture growth, healing, and overcome loneliness.

Currently I am pursuing a certification in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, one of the most effective forms of marital therapy used today.
By the time people call me, I know they have typically tried a number of solutions to the problems they are experiencing. I believe in the individuals and couples I see, and I work with them to help understand and identify the feelings and circumstances that are contributing to their repetitive struggles. We work together to find solutions, identify patterns and overcome the fears and obstacles that are holding them back from the freedom and intimacy in relationships that they are longing to achieve.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

I also have a broad-based understanding of spirituality and contemplative approaches and am comfortable with integrating this into treatment when clients would like and as appropriate.

Your once amazing relationship feels so hard but it doesn’t have to be. You have a deep desire to be your best self for you and your partner but it feels like regardless of your best efforts you continue to struggle. It used to feel so easy but you now find yourself on edge and agitated more often than not. When you try to share your feelings they often come out wrong or your partner just doesn’t get it which leaves you wishing you hadn’t said anything at all. It’s getting harder to engage on the smallest things.

Asking for help is not always easy which is why I view it as a significant strength. No one should feel alone or feel they lack support when trying to navigate and overcome the many challenges life may unexpectedly throw their way. Being an advocate for social justice and helping people reach their full potential are my passions, so it’s only natural that social work is my life calling. I have witnessed time and time again the transformative power therapy has in people's lives, which motivates me to be the best social worker I can be. I'm committed to helping my clients meet their goals and reach their full potential.

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.
