I work with a combination of modalities including: Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy, Organic Intelligence, Positive Psychology, Psycho-Education, Mindfulness, Dyadic Developmental Therapy, and Sensorimotor Therapy.
In a relationship with a partner that leaves you despairing or giving up? Trying to raise a child who melts down over what seems like nothing? Feeling that parts of yourself won't let you move on and experience life as you'd like? How we connect with others, ourselves, or even our spiritual resources can be life-giving or exasperating. I specialize in attachment---the way we connect with those most important to us. I will meet you where you are. I'll work hard to understand what you are experiencing.

My approach to counseling is emotionally focused , integrating mindful awareness of the body, and the opportunity, if you wish, to access deeper aspects of yourself through sandtray therapy, simple artistic expression, and dream work .
More than 25 years of counseling experience have taught me that within each of us is an inherent drive toward emotional health. As your therapist, I want to create a safe and caring relationship in which I serve as your companion on a journey toward self-understanding and healing at the level of heart, mind, body and spirit. I work to help people struggling with anxiety, depression, shame, grief, trauma, difficult life transitions, mid-life issues, and career issues.

I've completed Level I and II training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based treatment for trauma as well as specialized training in two science based couples therapies: Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
When we're faced with adversity, we have two choices: to do nothing and hope that things improve on their own or to engage the problem and transform it. My approach to counseling is focused first on listening and then on helping my clients understand themselves and their ultimate concerns in a deeper way so that they can live fuller, happier lives. My practice uses evidence based treatments whenever possible and my clients' comfort and confidentiality are always my main concern.

I view therapy as a collaborate space where it is safe to share life’s difficulties. I find joy in working together to learn to cope with stressors and develop healthy habits for better managing relationships, mental health concerns, and whatever situation might be important in that moment. I enjoy working with adults and couples. My primary areas of expertise include treating mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, as well as working with adjustment disorders and substance use disorders. Therapy is about helping people through situational life stressors or relationship conflicts.

Oftentimes, the impacts of past pain leave us feeling drained, overwhelmed and confused about our path forward. We can lack a sense of self-worth, after being hurt by the very people who were supposed to take care of us. I help clients reconnect to their inner power to reparent and restore lost parts of themselves. On this journey, I guide clients in reawakening their naturally empowered, vibrant selves. I specialize in working with adults, couples, teens and families seeking healing, connection, and change both inside of themselves and within their closest relationships.

I have partnered with clients in order to assist them with turning these struggles into times of learning, growing and healing.

If you’re looking for a therapist that just nods and asks: “How do you feel about that?”, then you better keep on looking. I have an interactive no BS and no sugar-coating approach that all my clients state has been extremely refreshing and welcoming to them in the therapeutic process. Self-empowerment, radical acceptance, and authentic human connection will be the cornerstone of our work. I utilize strength based, solution focused, and neuroscientific theory to guide us in your journey. This is about you—your stories, successes, traumas, hopes, and infinite wisdom! Sometimes we’ll laugh. Often, we’ll cry. Onward to self discovery!

I believe therapy should take place in a safe, supportive, empowering, and confidential environment. Clients are active in the process, exploring areas including feelings, beliefs, and behaviors while working through personal history and identifying aspects of their lives they wish to change. Clients take a journey to better understanding of themselves and others. We will set personal goals, and work together toward desired change through reflection, processing and skill building. When working with children I work with the child individually and also invite parents/guardians into session to learn skills to utilize at home to support the child with change.

I have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years and I have worked in a variety of settings including psychiatric hospitals, community mental health, employee assistance, and now private practice. What I love most about what I do is learning and understanding my clients' individual histories and current life situations. Therapy is not a "one size fits all" treatment plan, everyone's story is unique and their story has to be heard. My clients and I work as a team to figure out what the goals of therapy are and to try to reach those goals as best as we can. My job is to guide, not lead, a client on their journey.

It would be hard to argue that our lives haven't been a lot more complicated over the last few years. Whether you are a child or teen dealing with peer pressure or the stressors at school, a stay at home parent trying to manage everyone's busy schedules, a working professional balancing family life and the stress a job can bring, a single or divorced parent struggling to get through each day, a young adult looking for direction in life, or part of a family trying to raise your kids in this increasingly complex world, I have extensive experience in all of these areas.

Therapy is a unique experience between the counselor and the client, unlocking the client's potential to be a more genuine version of themselves. People often seek out counseling services in order to gain new perspectives about a recent or past experience, to understand better where they have been, where they are standing, and where it is they want to go. No one has to ever do anything alone, there is always support; counseling offers that support through being heard, as well as exploring and practicing tools to cope with stress that is a part of life.

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. Kalamazoo 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.
