I am currently accepting new clients. Have you experienced a significant loss in your life, whether it be the death of a loved one, a relationship, or a life transition? Do you feel aimless or lost? Grief is an inevitable experience of being human, but we never feel truly prepared to navigate loss when we face it. Grief is complicated and often feels isolating. I firmly believe that everyone has the inner tools necessary for healing and I bring an alternative perspective in these moments. I also work with issues such as depression and anxiety, helping clients become better leaders to themselves.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which is considered the gold standard in marriage counseling.
Does it feel like you and your spouse are having the same fight over and over again? These recurring disagreements often provide little resolution, leaving us feeling misunderstood and disconnected. This relationship dynamic is not only frustrating, it starts to impact our own individual happiness and health. I assist couples by helping them step back and view their own relationship dynamic in a way that brings about their true voice and intentions in the moments of anger, blame, disconnection and withdrawal. In this way, each partner can begin to hear and experience one another in a way that builds intimacy, connection and hope.

We practice the proven highly effective research based couples therapy model called Emotionally Focused Therapy developed by Sue Johnson.
I lead a group of specialists that help couples pull out of negative patterns of conflict and distress so they can become closer and more connected to one another. We understand that our need for secure connection is wired in us and when we can't feel connected in our most important relationships, it causes great distress. If it seems you are arguing over petty things, or feel distant and withdrawn, if your sexual connection isn't what it used to be or you are feeling like roommates, we can help create the safety needed to explore the underlying issues at the core so you can experience a loving, secure bond with one another.

I UNDERSTAND! I understand trauma, addiction and I understand pain. I have been in recovery from substance abuse and everything that comes with it since January of 1991.I know what it means to journey from a place of brokenness to a place of wholeness. Addiction and other maladaptive behaviors are just SYMPTOMS of a deeper rooted problem. If you feel like you KNOW what to do but just cannot seem to make yourself do it chances are you have unprocessed issues. If you are in need of support for yourself, or a loved one I would love to help you navigate the road of this journey.

Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you is pivotal to a beneficial and meaningful experience in therapy. A strong therapeutic relationship is the vehicle for change and the strongest predictor of treatment success. My international education encouraged me to adopt a flexible, curious, and inclusive perspective on the factors that contribute to one's identity and difficulties (e.g., religion, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, etc.). I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space to support clients' introspective journeys, exploration of identities, and understanding of the self, others, and the world.

Why go to therapy? We all are allowed to have a crisis, but shouldn't do it at the same time. Therapy can be an incredible tool to help guide us in any stage of life. An experience designed around your individual needs, as healing comes in many forms. As a therapist, I seek to create an open and trusting space for you to be heard, to better understand yourself and to develop strategies that help you to navigate life with a healthy mindset. The therapeutic strategies that I use are guided by a trauma informed lens that allows for the use of many different potential interventions and determined by your personal needs and preferences.

Are you struggling with stress or anxiety? Are you experiencing conflict in your relationships or marriage? Do you have a child that is struggling with focus, attention, or emotional regulation? Have you experienced grief, loss, or trauma? Are you uncertain about therapy because you are concerned the approach won't match your personal values? Do you wish you could find a therapist/coach that would be creative/unorthodox? I use a holistic and integrative approach to address areas of concern for families and individuals in a safe atmosphere of acceptance.

I have always been interested in understanding the world from other people's points of view. I realize that every person sees the world from their own unique perspective and that we are all shaped by the lives we have lived and how we chose to tell our stories. Sometimes we experience things in life that we don't know how to handle on our own--or that we would like to handle differently. It is easy to get stuck and not know how to move forward! I view my job as a therapist is to help people see their problems from different perspectives and help them uncover the skills they need to make meaningful changes.

Life stressors, relationships, and transitions can be difficult and overwhelming to navigate alone. Perhaps you feel down most days, disappointed in yourself, anxious, and it feels so hard to get unstuck? The feelings and reminders of painful events you have survived are overwhelming. I'm glad that you're taking this opportunity to take care of your mental health. Finding the right therapist for you is an important part of starting therapy. My goal is to provide a space that feels comfortable, safe, and supportive. I feel comfortable integrating various modalities to fit my client's needs.

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. Knoxville 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.
