As a counselor, it is important to meet each individual where they are at; therefore, I utilize various modalities to meet my clients needs via interpersonal therapy, narrative therapy, CBT, family systems, attachment theories, trauma-informed care and EFT for couples.
"Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you need. To talk about how you’re feeling. To have the hard conversations."- Brené Brown. Counseling can feel intimidating, nerve-racking, and desperate; I get it. And the reality is we cannot live life alone and we cannot heal alone. We need each other for support, encouragement, empowerment and restoration. My role as a counselor is to partner with you in your journey toward integrated wholeness and health and to provide you a safe space to be vulnerable, courageous, real and imperfect; for you to come as you are and to just be.

These models include (but are not limited to); Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Practice, EMDR and EFT (Emotional Focused Therapy).
Finding someone to speak with and asking for help is a courageous step. I understand how it can be to share personal information with someone you have just met and I will hold this position with respect. Many people come to therapy for support with anxiety, depression, stress, loss and relationship issues. For some, therapy is more about understanding themselves, changing patterns of behavior that are outdated and they are making efforts to move forward. Therapy is not about advice giving, although many times, problem solving is part of the process. Change seems more likely when there is someone listening to us and we feel encouraged. It's also useful to speak with someone who has knowledge of the most effective strategies for change. It is my hope that whatever your reason for seeking therapy, together we can create a useful experience for you.

One of my greatest rewards as a therapist is helping clients explore ways to make changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope and live fully in the present. I believe we all need someone to talk with, who will really listen and accept us as we are, without judgement. I provide clients with a warm, non-judgmental environment; a safe place to explore the issues that may be preventing them from living the life they want. I have a heart for helping others find deeper meaning and a sense of purpose.

Are you transitioning into a new chapter of your life? Do you feel as though there is too much going on in your life? I believe that change is an inevitable part of the shared human experience. Although change is inevitable, everyone's process to change is different. Thus, I believe in a holistic approach to mental health treatment, with the integration of awareness within the mind and the body, tailored to the needs of my clients.

Deep inside each of us is a reservoir of wisdom, of knowing what is true for us. Granted, that inner wisdom maybe be layered over with negative messages, unexamined beliefs acquired years ago, noise from the busy-ness of our lives and the chaos of the world, or personal doubt, lack of confidence, confusion. Being present in the body so that we can access that inner wisdom is a crucial aspect of counseling and doing so can help us find the way forward in life. Learning to be fully present in the moment is a gift we can give ourselves as we live our lives and move toward healing and well-being.

If you are looking for a therapist, it is likely you are ready to experience some change in your life. I provide trauma-focused psychotherapy which can guide you into both transformation and healing. You may be suffering with symptoms of depression, trauma, chronic pain, and anxieties. When you reach out for help, feeling better is an inevitable outcome. Often, when you begin to more mindfully experience your inner world, you may feel more emotional intensity before you feel better. My therapy approach is holistic in the sense that I acknowledge and work with the body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Bereavement, suicide loss, loss of a pet, life transitions, difficulties in relationship to others and to self are some of the reasons people seek counseling. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe place for clients to work through problems, discover their strengths, and find hope for healing and change. It takes courage to reach out and seek support when you recognize that what you are doing on your own doesn't seem to be working. My hope is that you will start your journey to healing.

If you need to re-connect, re-ignite, or even resurrect your marriage, then come see me. Perhaps as an individual, you feel stuck in a certain emotional state such as frustration, anxiety or depression, and you're tired of it. Maybe your not making adjustments to life after a recent loss. Such challenges can lead to isolation, helplessness, and feeling disconnected from those you used to be close to. As humans we co-regulate, meaning we need another person (therapist) to help us sort out our chaos. In the process of "sorting out" and gaining new skill sets ( one's not learned in childhood) a new hope and joy can emerge.

Making the decision to go to a counselor/psychotherapist is a true act of courage. I honor you for taking this courageous step. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with all types of addictions ie alcohol,drugs,sex,food,gambling. I view addictions in a broader sense to include self defeating thought patterns, love/relationship addiction, hoarding, internet use, procrastination. Addictions are about avoiding pain and getting trapped in a repetitive cycle of thoughts and behaviors that result in more pain and regret. I provide my clients with a roadmap to follow as they seek to reclaim their self-esteem, integrity and joy.

Emotionally Focused Therapists

Who is emotionally focused therapy for?

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is for couples who are emotionally distressed, stuck in an unsatisfying relationship pattern or feeling deeply alienated. They may even believe the relationship is beyond repair. Very often, the partners display intense anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal in the relationship. In addition, EFT is helpful to couples and individuals who have difficulty expressing emotions and those who have trouble regulating emotions.

Why do people need emotionally focused therapy?

People need emotionally focused therapy because the need for others is built into the brain, but the pressures of daily life can erode feelings of love, and couples often do not have the skills to find their way back to the comfort of each other. Instead, they may be stuck in repetitive patterns of anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal. Emotionally focused therapy regards such strong negative feelings as expressions of protest over the loss of connection and turns them into pathways of reconnection.

What happens in emotionally focused therapy?

Over the course of eight to 20 weekly sessions, couples de-escalate their negative emotional reactivity to one another so that they can listen to each other and be responsive to each other’s needs. Then the deep emotional and physical bond is restored, giving partners a sense of comfort and security, which they can use to solve whatever problems come their way. The therapist plays an active role, helping partners understand how anger and withdrawal are actually misguided cries for connection.

What problems does emotionally focused therapy treat?

EFT is designed to help couples stuck in dysfunctional relationship patterns regain closeness and rebuild their relationship. Typically, such couples experience considerable distress, with partners feeling alienated and distrustful of one another, not certain their relationship can survive. EFT is also helpful to individuals experiencing attachment-related fears of loss; it helps them learn to use their fears as a way of eliciting the closeness they desire.
