My approach blends Gottman Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Modern Analysis.
Couples come to see me when they are caught in an escalating, upsetting pattern which they need help to get out of. They need better connection, communication, and cooperation with each other. Individuals come to see me with emotional pain and self defeating patterns of thinking and behaving. Working together as a therapeutic team I am able to help create a safe space in which recognition, understanding and validation and changes in outlook, attitude and behavior are learned and applied to create satisfying interpersonal and internal connections

My primary modalities are EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), with an emphasis on the therapeutic relationship.
I have worked with trauma and injustice for over 10 years, and this work has repeatedly shown me that connection is the key to unlock healing and move forward in unexpected directions. I strive to provide a therapeutic space where clients can experience something radically different and feel safe to practice new and courageous ways of relating to themselves and to others. I have successfully helped teenagers, adults and couples experience reparation from unresolved events, peace from anxiety and acceptance in times of grief. My frame is justice-focused, anti-oppressive and identity-affirming.

I create a warm, safe and collaborative environment and tailor treatment to your needs using the evidence-based practices of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and mindfulness.
Life is full of challenges! And while we work through and overcome many obstacles that come our way, there are times when we feel too overwhelmed to manage them on our own. Challenges can take many forms, whether as regular self-criticism, fear, depression, shame, obsessional thinking, processing a loss, conflict with someone important in our lives, or surviving abuse. These forms of suffering deserve kindness, understanding, and support. The right guidance can help us move through and decrease these symptoms so we can feel greater contentment and connection.

Are you living the life you want? Is your relationship a source of pain for you? Are you arguing more, trusting less, or finding yourself not looking forward to spending time together? Maybe your relationship feels stuck, like you're just replaying the same disagreement over and over again. Do you not like the person you are when you're in a relationship or wonder why you keep repeating patterns in the type of person you date? Human beings are wired for connection, yet somehow the people we are closest with also seem to cause us the most pain.

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. New York 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.
