Announcement icon During public health distancing guidelines, I am exclusively offering secure telehealth (phone and video) services to NC residents.
There is a pathway back to secure relationships and emotional well-being. 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 integrating the art and science of psychotherapy, tailored to the situations and needs of my clients. Dissatisfaction, divorce, frustration and despair isn't inevitable. Secure and stable relationships with others and good feelings about yourself are possible with help.
I am certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and also flexibly pull from other approaches that privilege collaboration, responsive relationships and context (AEDP, Gottman Method, etc). I am effective in helping clients de-escalate painful interpersonal and internal patterns, process painful feelings to completion, and revive and expand positive feelings.
I guide clients to emotional clarity and resolution, and I don't give up hope that relationships and our emotional lives can be more satisfying and stable. Whether serving couples, families or individuals, I provide a warm, engaged, and validating therapy experience that builds understanding and security for self and others.
