I work with couples, individuals, and families focusing on issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief/loss, and trauma. I have been trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and utilize these techniques for couples and individuals. During our sessions, we will identify the underlying emotional needs and gain tools to communicate those needs to others, whether that is with our partner, our family, or our friends. My goal is to provide a non-judgmental space where people can increase their understanding of the unhelpful patterns of behaviors that might be causing them pain and hardship.

I use experiential methods - AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) and EFT ( Emotionally Focused Therapy) in my work and have seen incredible transformation and growth.
Whether you are struggling in your relationship, dealing with loneliness from the multiple issues we've dealt with the past year (pandemic, grief, trauma), or simply needing to process some things with someone objectively, I believe the therapeutic relationship can be a platform for deep transformation and continued growth.

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.

Hellooo! Thanks for making time to be here today. If you're here, I'm wondering if you've asked yourself important questions such as: When was the last time you were asked what you needed? What does acceptance look like in your life? How can you live your most authentic self? What does it look like creating an environment for yourself to be successful? If you find yourself resonating with these questions, then you're more than likely seeking a provider who can help you achieve your goals, and maybe that's me! I encourage you to make an appointment today to find out.

I work with those who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and not taking care of oneself first. Trauma comes in many forms and may not always look like what you'd expect. I also work well with caregivers and other helpers who experience compassion fatigue, along with those who find themselves giving more than they receive in their relationships. No matter the circumstances that bring you into therapy, we will spend time on how to set boundaries, tune in to your needs, and heal your trauma.

Have you been combing the St. Louis area for a therapist, only to be discouraged because no one felt like the right fit? Been there. Have you been putting off seeing someone because the thought of laying on a chaise lounge, talking about yourself to a stranger across the room for an hour gives you heartburn? Been there. Have you been avoiding getting help because you feel like that means you actually have to acknowledge that you need it? Holy moly, I’ve been there. While I can’t speak to your experience, I understand that the decision to go to therapy can feel impossibly hard. Seeking therapy/treatment shouldn’t feel like a burden.

Have you found yourself struggling with life stressors such as fertility problems, chronic illness, marital discord, relationship infidelity, or even difficulty making major decisions? If so, therapy is right for you. Are you blissfully happy and seeking pre-marital counseling with a future spouse? If so, therapy is right for you too! These incentives for counseling have one common thread, a desire to pinpoint areas where you are "stuck", guard against potential threats to your relationship harmony, improve your life, improve your relationship, and become the best version of yourself.

My work is focused on creating space for you to feel connected, cared for, and curious so that together we can explore who you are. Many times clients come to counseling because there is a gap between what they have and what they want, or more often who they are and who they want to be. Any client looking for greater insight into who they are and what they want is a great fit for me. I especially love working with new moms and parents as they start to build their identity as a parent.

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. Saint Louis 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.
