Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) + Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) trained.
Please email rather than call. People I work with are typically experiencing stress/anxiety at home, work, school and may be having difficulty with relationships. Often individuals have trauma histories to explore or are impacted by stressful relationships such as caregiving, family members with substance use, or conflict in romantic relationships. Most importantly, our therapeutic relationship is an environment that is safe for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so you can begin to find peace, increased self-worth, better boundaries, and improved ability to feel joy in all of your spaces you occupy

As the only Certified Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy Supervisor in St.
Couples often say to me - "We can't seem to communicate anymore. Why are we having such a hard time understanding each other?" Have you ever felt like this in your relationship? I can help you make the changes necessary to feel connected again as well as create a more hopeful future. We will work with your thoughts, feelings, and actions, in order to recognize and then disrupt your negative cycles of conflict. Then together, we will create new opportunities for increasing closeness. Ultimately, you will see what is not "working", learn "why", and begin to apply new strategies to bring safety and security back to your relationship.

Mental health is for everyone - seriously! I work with individuals with a variety of mental health diagnosis and concerns. Some people come to counseling to process a traumatic event, some come to talk about the stress they're experiencing at their job, and some come just to learn about why they haven't been feeling their best emotionally lately. If you feel like you could even pin-point exactly why you feel how you do, but it just doesn't make it better, I'm the counselor for you. I don't just help you figure out why, I help you DO something with what you learn about yourself so you can move past any barriers you have.

Welcome. My approach to therapy revolves around insight, empowerment, and making meaningful changes in life. I strive to help people release pain from the past, and worries about the future, so that they can find peace and fulfillment in everyday life. My style is personable and warm, and I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities based on what will be most helpful to each person. When applicable, I enjoy exploring the mind-body connection through both cognitive and somatic therapeutic approaches, which is largely influenced by my interest in mindfulness, attachment, and neurobiology perspectives.

I work with adults and families who are challenged by symptoms of anxiety, depression, behavioral issues or other barriers to emotional well-being. My specialty is helping to gain an understanding of what is impeding your current enjoyment of life, and then moving toward solutions. I have a working understanding of family systems, attachment science, personality disorders and trauma-informed practices. I especially enjoy working with parents who are struggling with their children's behaviors or compliance, and I am also passionate about helping adult clients become "cycle breakers" and gain relief from generational dysfunction.

Life is unexpected and consists of hard things, but you do not have to do life alone. We are called according to scripture to do life in relationship. Ecclesiastes 4:10 says “If one falls down, his friend can help him up”. Counseling can provide that hand up. It can be a way to address things from our past we have been holding on to or things in our present we need help walking through. No matter what your past or present, we all need someone to walk beside us. I am honored when a client allows me the privilege of seeing who they are and hearing their story.

Are you and your partner feeling more and more like roommates? What happened? We used to have such a great connection and so much passion for each other. Now we feel like we are just going through the motions, trying to get through our days and survive. If this is what your relationship looks like right now, I’d love to work with you to help figure out where you lost each other. Where the communication got stuck and almost non-existent. Our work together will bring back that closeness and connection that you miss. That safe space where you can be yourself and know that your partner is there for you and has your back no matter what.

The choice to enter into your story is admirable. Examining past wounds and current patterns is brave and risky. I count it a privilege to partner with clients as we work toward health and freedom. You can expect a safe and compassionate space to engage your pain, fears, passion, desires and self. I collaborate with clients to address areas of struggle, need and strength. I delight in pointing clients toward the hope that pain does not have the final say.

Sometimes we all feel a little bit broken, we can get so caught up in what's going wrong or what's not working. Sometimes life get's hard, too much stress at home or work, relationship issues, grief and loss, addiction, depression, anxiety or feeling like we have just lost our way. No matter what is going on, you have taken that first step and you have come to the right place.

Our focus as we work together will be on life-long SUSTAINABLE change. How often have you changed, and then life rolls over you or memories overwhelm you, and your response shows you that the change didn't stick? My first aim is to help clients build new habits, new perspectives, and new thought patterns; my second and equally important goal is to grow deep roots on those hard-fought-for changes. When you have worked so desperately and confronted the old you, grown in grace and love toward yourself and others, we will be sure that those powerful transitions will be held on to and established as a way to thrive.

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.
