I enjoy working with people to meet them right where they are and walk alongside them in navigating the difficult places life can bring us to. Most often these difficult places are not of our choice yet even if they are, there can be a beauty in using our pain as a stepping stone to change paths towards growth and healing.

Depressed? Anxious? PTSD? Marital conflict? Unwanted emotions and the painful past seem to continually create difficulty? These are a few of the reasons individuals and couples come to see me. I help them gain understanding of the underlying factors that drive their present thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Bring about healing and transformation of the underlying beliefs, fears, and dysfunctional behavior patterns is the goal. Just understanding and talking about it is not enough. By using advanced training in working with with trauma and relational difficulty I collaborate with clients to help create lasting change.

My approach to therapy is to walk along side my client in a caring and nonjudgmental manner. I believe everyone has a story and when we listen we understand and are better able to assist with their emotional hurts. Everyone has struggles but it's much easier to work through them with a supportive hand. I am here to help you recognize your strengths and build on them until they are more prevalent than your distress. My education started with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Indiana University and a Master's in Social Work from Simmons School of Social Work.

Life circumstances can become overwhelming and long term therapy is too slow. You need help now. I use actively accelerated therapies and focus on short term solutions and your emotional health. Many people see results in days instead of weeks. Fear anxiety and depression robs us of happiness. My approach of client centered counseling helps you to work through problems, rediscover you strengths and to meet you true wants, needs and desires.

Are you having trouble trying to be the person you want to be in a relationship? Do you have some ideas about why things got the way they are, but can't seem to figure out how to change them? And it seems like such a shame, because you want to be closer if only you could figure out how. If you have the energy and desire, then we can almost always find a way. Give me a call or send me an e-mail and we can talk about what might be possible.

Relationships can bring out the best and the worst in us: at times, leaving us feeling like our best selves; at others, like the dirt on the floor. Depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms can manifest as we attempt to cope with these relational injuries: trauma, loss, rejection, abandonment, and exile from the ones we love, maybe even our very selves. Painful patterns built with loved ones can be difficult to change, yet within these conflicts our longings emerge to guide new patterns of growth.

Are you and your partner struggling to communicate, set boundaries, or prioritize quality time together? Struggles in these areas often lead to emotional distancing. Left unresolved, couples often report feeling unsure of their future, including thoughts of divorce. In couples or marriage counseling, I'll help you create a new way of communicating about difficult topics, leading to closer emotional connection. I also provide support for individuals with relational difficulties, especially related to low self-esteem or people pleasing tendencies. I strive to be LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent affirming and a BIPOC ally.

Emotionally Focused Therapists

Who is emotionally focused therapy for?

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is for couples who are emotionally distressed, stuck in an unsatisfying relationship pattern or feeling deeply alienated. They may even believe the relationship is beyond repair. Very often, the partners display intense anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal in the relationship. In addition, EFT is helpful to couples and individuals who have difficulty expressing emotions and those who have trouble regulating emotions.

Why do people need emotionally focused therapy?

People need emotionally focused therapy because the need for others is built into the brain, but the pressures of daily life can erode feelings of love, and couples often do not have the skills to find their way back to the comfort of each other. Instead, they may be stuck in repetitive patterns of anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal. Emotionally focused therapy regards such strong negative feelings as expressions of protest over the loss of connection and turns them into pathways of reconnection.

What happens in emotionally focused therapy?

Over the course of eight to 20 weekly sessions, couples de-escalate their negative emotional reactivity to one another so that they can listen to each other and be responsive to each other’s needs. Then the deep emotional and physical bond is restored, giving partners a sense of comfort and security, which they can use to solve whatever problems come their way. The therapist plays an active role, helping partners understand how anger and withdrawal are actually misguided cries for connection.

What problems does emotionally focused therapy treat?

EFT is designed to help couples stuck in dysfunctional relationship patterns regain closeness and rebuild their relationship. Typically, such couples experience considerable distress, with partners feeling alienated and distrustful of one another, not certain their relationship can survive. EFT is also helpful to individuals experiencing attachment-related fears of loss; it helps them learn to use their fears as a way of eliciting the closeness they desire.
