I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate at Awakenings Counseling Center. I obtained my MA in Marriage and Family Therapy at Pacific Lutheran University. I believe in taking a collaborative, strengths-based approach to therapy, while placing emphasis on examining how emotions, attachment, interactional patterns, and social structures influence lived experiences. I have experience working with the military community, and feel passionately about providing service members and their families with quality therapy that takes into account their unique needs.

I often use a scientifically-validated approach called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) as a means to guide our sessions.
Tired of feeling stuck, misunderstood, & disconnected? You find yourself struggling with communication. The arguments, misunderstanding, and hurt are overwhelming. It feels like your relationship is moving in the wrong direction, and the conflict in your relationship is really getting old. You feel alone. You may even be considering separation or divorce. Take the first step to sort through all of it: the misunderstanding, the arguments, the hurt, the disconnection, the downward spiral, and loneliness. I can help you gain clarity to move toward healing in your relationship. Let me help you experience your relationship in a new way.

My desire has always been working with couples and that passion remains today. I have been in practice for over 20 years, specializing in helping couples who are burdened by wanting to make their relationship work, but are uncertain of the tools and where to start.

I pull from Attachment-based theory, Experiential Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy to assist clients in processing their past, while advocating for them to walk their life path in the most authentic version of themselves.
Let's face it, relationships are hard. Whether it's a significant other, family member, friend, co-worker, or even ourselves, it can be difficult to find meaning in the ways we try to communicate. Navigating the world of emotional connection with other humans can be a challenge, especially if we haven't always had success at understanding even our own personal emotions. There are so many different parts that make us whole, and my goal as a therapist is to help my clients safely explore and accept those various parts with empathy and compassion.

Welcome. I have learned that no one theory works for everyone. By utilizing different therapeutic approaches I help you achieve practical and lasting results. Together we can make the necessary connections in order for you to achieve a greater self-understanding. This understanding is not focused on good or bad, right or wrong but on the underlying reasons and beliefs that motivate your behavior. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve the current challenges in your 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. 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.
