Are you feeling stuck or alone in your struggles? Are you dealing with anxiety, depression, or relationship problems? You do not have to go through it alone. I will provide a safe space, listen empathically, and help you make sense of what is happening inside of you. With this understanding, you will learn to communicate your needs and challenges with your loved ones more effectively and strengthen your relationships. Understanding your own emotions and learning to connect with others on a deeper level will free you to live your life to the fullest.
I practice Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with couples, individuals, and families in a non-pathologizing, empathic, humanistic approach. If you have experienced trauma, I also provide EMDR. For couples who are contemplating separation or divorce, I can provide Discernment Counseling to help navigate the options in your difficult decision process.
There is nothing to be ashamed of in seeking counseling. I can guide you safely and respectfully to the root of your struggles if you are willing to put in the work. I have experienced myself the blessings of doing the hard work in individual and couples therapy. I would be honored if you allow me to come alongside you in your journey of healing and growth.
