I have completed specialized training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT) and use this empirically validated model to use emotions and attachment theory in work with both couples and individuals.
*I have openings for new clients on Mondays and Wednesdays* I work with couples and individuals who feel stuck and are seeking a warm, safe space to explore change and to grow. If you are ready to dive in deep and put in the work to explore yourself, your relationships and create positive change, we will be a great fit. I particularly enjoy working with pre-marital and newly married couples who are seeking increased closeness and support navigating conflicts/arguments, as well as women going through relationship and life transitions such as dating stressors, break-ups and divorce.

Are you interested in how to use the connections between your mind, brain and body to improve your health, enrich your relationships, and increase your overall life? Working with these connections has been the focus of my 30 years of practice as a psychologist. Since every client's presenting concern in some way or another impacts upon their brain, their mind and their body - whether that involves depression, anxiety, pain, sleep, relationship challenges, or digestive concerns - my orientation to therapy is well positioned to help people get better now and to be better positioned to stay healthier in the future.

People say you are a good person with a perfect life, yet you don't feel like it. People say it will work out, yet nothing changes. Some people even say you should wait it out, pray it off, or let it be, yet your heart is not letting you forget about it. In the end, you feel alone. You may feel afraid or ashamed to even talk about it with people close to you. You wonder if others will truly understand you and your situation. You struggle to open up because you do not want to be judged. And I get it.

Accepting New Telehealth Clients! Vulnerability is an act of bravery. But being brave isn’t easy when you do it alone. And it’s especially difficult when your brain is telling you that you aren’t good enough, worthy, or important. Maybe your mind has convinced you that if you wash your hands, google that medical condition for hours, or stop thinking that thought, the thoughts and anxiety will go away. Perhaps by changing the way you eat, you can “fix it.” For some, being who you are is challenging or even not allowed, because those around you do not understand or approve.

Are you (or your family) stuck? Have you been trying the same things over and over and nothing is changing? Time to try a more direct approach! I can help. My work with clients is rooted in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT is not for the faint-hearted! It is direct, evidence-based and it works. DBT has been proven useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm, and substance abuse. At Minnetonka Counseling I lead adolescent and family DBT groups, adult DBT groups as well as advance DBT workshops for DBT graduates.

Have you ever felt like your inner world was collapsing yet everything around you just kept moving forward and you're trying to play "keep-up"? Have you ever felt particularly down during the dark and cold winter months? Or feel anxious to the point of not being able to sleep, rest, eat, or be a part of social gatherings and activities? Maybe your relationship feels hopeless and you're not sure how to mend things with your partner, of even if you want to mend things. We all go through harder times in life and it can be easy to compare our "hard things" to those of others and question, "Do I really need to go therapy?".

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. 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.
