Theories I have used are Psychodynamics, Emotionally Focused , Cognitive Behavioral, EMDR, and Attachment.
Experiencing a heavy heart of pain with fear, shame, guilt, or loneliness can keep one from receiving a life of joy. So many times, one is ready to lay that burden down, but they are unsure of how to free themselves from the hurt. There is a process that can help anyone who is ready for a change. My clients say they have experienced me as non-judgmental and caring. They can bring anything into a therapy session as I have a way of understanding and helping them to find answers to their hurts in a place where they feel safe.

I draw my therapy techniques from researched and empirically supported theoretical approaches; namely, Cognitive Behavioral, Emotionally Focused , and Solution Focused Therapy approaches.
As humans, we experience pain, loss, or difficulties in our lives as individuals and in our family relationships. We make our best efforts to cope, adapt or resolve these trying experiences on our own. But sometimes, we get stuck or they are too great to endure alone. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a safe place, free of judgement, invested in exploring, healing, and growing. Together, we can work on the interpersonal, emotional, psychological, and spiritual issues that hinder you and your relationships from reaching full potential.

I have been helping individuals and couples transform their lives for over 25 years. My work is holistic. We target the root causes of your distress rather than skimming the surface level of symptoms. Only when root causes are addressed can symptoms dissolve. We dive deeply into the core issues that are keeping you stuck, disconnected and dissatisfied in your life and relationships. The process is efficient, effective, respectful, safe and profound. My ideal clients are people who are passionate about healing and releasing patterns that no longer serve them.

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. Rockville 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.
