My training was based on a clinically validated program called Emotionally Focused Therapy(EFT).
Are you unhappy and feel alone in your relationship or marriage? Are there problems with infidelity? Is there a lack of intimacy in your relationship? Do you feel disconnected from your partner and that your partner doesn't understand you? I am a couples counselor and have been able to help many relationships that have often been neglected for too long. The approach that I use does not assign blame to either person. I focus on discovering the awareness of the negative cycle that a couple gets into and help to create a positive and more understanding cycle.

I provide a safe, supportive environment where new communication skills and enhanced feelings of mutual support are experienced.

I like to think of myself as a seasoned clinician who has adapted and adjusted to the changing times. I have evolved my craft toward a mindfully oriented practice which I combine with cognitive, behavioral, insight and DBT techniques. My work supports adults going through their journey of radical acceptance focusing on those life changing events which can often cause emotional dysregulation. Whether the emotional rollercoaster is based on abandonment, trauma, inability to emotionally attach / detach to health relationships, aging, divorce, affairs or grief resulting in phobias, fears, anxieties or depression,

."I belong, therefore I am." The sense of belonging has often been wounded, damaged or undeveloped. Initially in our family, later in school, with friends and at work. Through the process of exploration and self-searching, we can begin to let ourselves go. When we are kind, and less consumed by our own ego; the darkness of depression and anxiety have less of a hold and we can find freedom.

Sometimes life's challenges become overwhelming and too difficult to handle on our own. I can offer a therapeutic environment that is supportive, solution focused and non-judgmental. I seek to work collaboratively with my clients to identify concerns and develop coping skills to move from feeling "stuck" in difficult life situations, to gain deeper self awareness and to attain personal growth.

With so many things going on in the world, it is often easy to neglect one's own mental health. Just as the physical health is important, so is the mental health. We provide a safe, private, and non-judgmental space, allowing clients the freedom to express themselves. It also important to understand that enlisting help is a sign of strength as it takes a tough person to admit when they need the support of a mental health professional.

There are things in life that prevent us from moving forward, some of these things include anger, bitterness, thinking patterns or habits that keep us from change, unresolved pain, and feelings of hopelessness and fear. We often want to let go of these, but struggle to know how, or where to begin. If you are tired of feeling stuck, and desire growth and change, consider reaching out. Working with a counselor does not have to be a last-minute resort. I am here to facilitate your understanding of self and others. It takes courage to change and heal. Transformation happens from within, and I would love to aid you with that process.

At times, we just need someone to talk to outside of our daily lives. We find ourselves with problems that we may not be able to solve on our own. Sometimes, we need a safe space where we can open-up and gain perspective and confidence. Are you overburdened with caregiver fatigue? Caregivers of all kinds often have self-doubt, guilt and shame about asking for help. Many caregivers just don't know what the next steps should be. What changes would you like to see?

I would like to build a working relationship that works for you. Help you find new insight into your situation. I would help you have a clearer thinking of your situation and help you better understand your feelings, needs and actions. Therapy to me is a process. It is a working relationship, a partnership that develops over time between client and therapist at a safe pace. Therapy is not always comfortable. My clients will fee comfortable talking to me regarding anything that maybe on their mind. A non-judgmental approach is essential. We will work together as a team o find an approach that works for you.

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.
