If you are navigating painful disconnection in your relationships, and long to rebuild safety, trust, respect, and loving feelings in your life, I can help. Helping people create healthy relationships with others and themselves is my passion and the primary mission of my practice. With my training and 15+ years of experience, I provide effective therapy for couples, families, and individuals using proven approaches tailored to the situations and needs of my clients. Dissatisfaction, divorce, frustration and despair doesn't have to be the outcome. Secure, confident relationships with others and yourself are possible with help.
I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor, and I also pull from other compatible evidence-based approaches to therapy (i.e. Gottman Method, IBCT, AEDP, Discernment Counseling). My training in these approaches allows me to effectively help clients navigate rough spots and relational traumas (such as affairs), and revive dormant bonds.
I guide clients to clarity and resolution. I don't give up hope that relationships can improve when both partners are interested, and I help couples find closure to terminating relationships. Whether serving couples or individual partners, I provide a warm, engaged, and validating therapy that builds understanding and security. Email me when you're ready.
