I am working with individuals using Emotionally Focused Therapy as well as other modalities.
Positive change is always possible. If you are in a crisis due to a loss, a transition, or if a relationship is not working, therapy can help. I can provide a safe, nonjudgmental environment to help you work on resolving your crisis and to develop insight to help improve your relationship. I am interested in working with clients who are experiencing anxiety and depression, including post-partum depression, I also have worked extensively with clients experiencing grief and loss, divorce, and other relationship issues.

My philosophy is best described as a strengths based, emotionally focused therapy.
**I have limited availability opening up, please complete my interest form on my website to work together ** There is no greater pain than feeling alone in life’s challenges. As humans, we are wired for connection. We long for another in our most difficult times and yet this request can be one of the most challenging to release. I create a safe space to explore the uncomfortable things in life, a space where clients can feel supported and respected in the process. As a collaborative therapist, my job is to honor the experiences of my clients and aid each individual in the creation of safe and secure relationships.

Because we are diverse beings with unique needs that require unique responses, my approach to psychotherapy draws from diverse techniques and philosophies, including Hakomi, Humanistic, Gestalt/Gestalt Dreamwork, Mindfulness, Somatic, Jungian/Dreamwork, Attachment-Based, Existential, Experiential, Bioenergetics, CBT, DBT, Emotionally Focused , World Wisdom & Spiritual Traditions, Buddhist Psychology and Yoga Psychology.
How you see yourself might be deeply influenced by the emotional distress, negative thought patterns, or destructive and addictive behaviors you struggle with. However, as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist I believe these conditions cover up, rather than define, who you truly are. My unique approach to psychotherapy encourages a balanced integration of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of your wellbeing. I'd like to support you in creating optimal conditions for the safe, mindful, and deep exploration of your innate capacity for self-healing and radical transformation.

Counseling is so much more than a job; it’s a calling. It is the biggest honor to get to sit with you and bear witness to your story. I approach counseling from a Christian worldview, and how much, if at all, we integrate spiritual approaches into our work is completely directed by you, the client.

How engaged are you with life? How do you relate to those around you? These are questions I explore with my clients by allowing our relationship to guide the process. As Irvin Yalom very well stated, "Therapy should not be theory driven, but relationship driven." I am a firm believer of this sentiment; and will accompany you on what I believe is an on-going journey towards self-growth. Through a therapeutic relationship that is safe, genuine, and caring; I aim to guide my client towards insight that makes a path towards change, understanding, and/or acceptance more feasible.

Life is hectic, and at times, it can be downright brutal! However, our culture rewards those who "push through" regardless of their circumstances. Before long, you're five miles to empty. You have no energy, you're not sleeping well, you're irritable, depressed, anxious, and at times emotionally detached from everything and everyone. My ideal client is someone who is looking to slow down and drown out the noises stifling their inner voice. Mourning loss, cultivating self-acceptance, creating useful internal dialogue, and establishing boundaries are possible when we choose to stop running on fumes and allow ourselves to be still.

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. Metairie 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.
