If you’re tired of recycling the same argument, walking on eggshells with each other or don’t know how to repair your relationship, I can help you get to the root of your disconnection. I help distressed, disconnected couples remember what it's like to be sexy best friends instead of roommates. Together, we will identify your entrenched ways of arguing so that both of you can break these patterns by learning how to clearly state how you’re feeling to your partner and in turn, listen deeply. I'll help you pay close attention to each other, so that you both feel a little more held each time we meet.
How you feel will determine how I work with you more than a therapy model. I create a culture of transparency and feedback by using Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) every session. Our work is results based and changes in response to how you're doing. I tape my sessions to identify my blind spots and practice skills to give you the best possible experience.
I would love to help you break and remake your paradigm of what’s possible in therapy and in your relationship. With help, you and your partner can exit out of persistent, long-standing cycles of arguing. Book an intake appointment online at your convenience: "ctrforexcelmft.patientsecure.me".

How you're feeling and how I'm doing as a therapist is more important to me than sticking to a particular approach. My therapy dogma is to put the client first by allowing your response to therapy and my approach to guide what I do. I ask for feedback every session and periodically ask how much you feel we've achieved your initial goals for therapy. Feedback Informed Treatment is research-backed.

I use PACT, ISTDP and IFS with couples and families. With individuals I use IFS and ISTDP. My focus with clients is creating lasting change by helping them 1)understand how they defend/avoid difficult emotional experiences (shame, depression, anxiety, etc.) 2)experience in session how this avoidance leads to further suffering 3)develop compassion and equanimity towards their cycle of suffering
