My approach is an eclectic one from Integrative Sex and Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Attachment Work, Gottman and Ego State Therapies.
I work with couples, families and adolescents. What they all have in common is a feeling of why is this happening to me? What do I do now? Is everyone doing better than I am? Is everyone managing so much easier than we are? Why is my marriage so difficult? Is parenting this hard for everyone? I know that life can be complicated, and it does not come with a manual. My goal is to work with clients to face and navigate their life so that they can gain perspective and grow. My love is working with clients so they can move through this world in such a way that they can be strong mentally and in healthy families and relationships.

Many experiences in life can motivate us to look for support―a difficult current or past relationship, overwhelming stress, unprocessed trauma, or maybe just a sense of being stuck. You aren't alone. My hope is that you find in me a nonjudgmental, caring presence to listen and help you process whatever pain or disconnection you might be experiencing. My aim is to guide you toward the wholeness you seek.

Healthy relationships are not the mystery that most of us believe them to be. Love may be the reason that we commit to a relationship, but few know how to sustain that wonderful, secure feeling. There are skills that all of us must learn in order to create and manage our relationships so that our dreams don't go the way of statistics and have us end up separated from our loved one. While individual therapy has been linked to worsening relationship issues, my research-based training provides the opposite: HOPE.

I specialize in experiential, attachment-based, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
All relationships have conflict. What differentiates thriving relationships from the declining? Can you repair your bond at the heart level after distress? Is your relationship a place you go to find comfort when life starts to hurt? Does your relationship create the tension necessary for harmony between strength and vulnerability? Strength does not allow you to be used, nor does it bring harm to others. Vulnerability requires risk but it never bullies you to get there. It is movement toward integrity that honors your protections but also challenges you to lay them down to receive care and the gift of being known by another.

Are you the one in your family/circle who has "made it" and now you have become the exhausted rescuer for the people you care about? Are there relationships in your present or past that need to be put to rest so they can stop showing up in your thought life? Have you realized some emotional triggers but not sure what to do next? Are you tired of feeling emotionally overwhelmed? Wouldn't it help to have a place you can go to process how to create healthier expectations? Would it help to have a confidential place to figure out how to work through stress without having to babysit someone else's response?

The focus of my psychotherapy practice has tended toward “driven” people - the high performers, hard workers, and leaders of society - who are driven to succeed. Driven people often find themselves caught in a harmful but subtle cycle. At first, their drive to succeed enables them to (over)work very hard, accomplish laudable goals, and enjoy big rewards. But the same drive also seems to entail a price tag: stressful jobs, difficult relationships, internal agonies (anxiety, depression, burnout), etc. Although survival tools - food, alcohol, love/sex, wealth, fun, etc. - can manage the pain for a while, they also entrap their users.

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.
