We integrate traditional psychotherapy with coaching, mindfulness, EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Breathwork, Somatic work, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems and other evidence-based approaches through teletherapy.
My approach to therapy is to create a safe space where you can explore and heal the difficult and painful issues that are showing up in your life. Together we will move beyond problem-solving into releasing the deeply held mistaken beliefs and core unresolved issues behind your symptoms. My body-centered and somatic approach allows me to work directly with your nervous system to address symptoms like anxiety, racing thoughts, and irrational fears as well as feeling stuck, depressed and unavailable or unresponsive to life and relationships.

I am an integrative, trauma-informed, and relational psychotherapist whose practice includes Emotionally Focused Therapy as well as tenets of Existential and Systems modalities.
I was drawn to the work of therapy because I believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. I have experienced the safety offered by this type of relationship as both clinician and client, and believe that this safety creates new harmony and courage within an individual’s self and relationships. I believe that the client is the expert on their experience, and I approach each session with humble curiosity. I love my work and look forward to the honor of walking alongside you on your journey.

I am pursuing certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couple therapy.
I find the most satisfaction working with those struggling with relationships - relationships with others as well your relationship with yourself. This struggle might express itself as feelings of emptiness, sadness, loneliness, disconnection, fear or anxiety, confusion, or meaninglessness. You might feel like you are floating through life without a map or destination. Alternatively, you might feel stuck or frozen within yourself. My goal is to work with you to help you define and understand these feelings, create the links and meanings of them, and ultimately to get you back moving on your life's roadmap.

When working with couples I work from an (EFT) Emotionally Focused Therapy framework.
***Currently not taking new clients *** Every person is seeking love and acceptance from one another. Life is meaningful when we connect with others. So, why is it so hard to navigate through relationships? Our culture, family of origin, and social expectations play an essential role in the ways we engage with others and influence our current struggles. We need love and acceptance for relationships to thrive, and so often we find ourselves in relationships where our needs are not being met. During our sessions, we will identify the underlying emotional needs and gain tools to communicate those needs to others.

Dealing with your “stuff” can leave you feeling exhausted, unseen, and like you’re carrying the weight of the world all alone. Believe me, I get it. I invite you to put that weight down and allow me to see all of who you are, including the things other people don't see. You shouldn't feel alone in this. So, if you are experiencing life transitions, interpersonal/relational issues, couples' conflict, stress, anxiety, depression, or complex and multigenerational trauma, please reach out as these are issues that I'm adept at understanding. I can help you carry the burden.

To facilitate the growth you'd like to see, we'll discuss your aspirations and collaboratively set goals toward finding balance. A prospective client might recognize the need for support or change in their situation and be brave enough to take the next step in connecting.

I strive to hear and understand your feelings, past and current experiences, as well as to provide information and new coping strategies to help you deal with your concerns, difficulties, and struggles.

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. Evanston 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.
