The way you tell your story to yourself matters. - Amy Cuddy We each have a story to tell and that story creates how we see ourselves, how we interact with the world around us, and how we manage the challenges life places in front of us. I approach therapy from the viewpoint that our personal story matters and we can change and shape our story through the therapeutic process. I utilize narrative therapy techniques to increase people's ability to have insight and self-awareness. I am also trained in expressive art therapies using Archetype imagery such as tarot and oracle cards. I am Pagan and alternative spirituality friendly.

Being seen and heard are gifts that a lot of us have not consistently received throughout our lives. Our humanity requires these gifts to experience fullness, wholeness, and a steady sense of self. Ruptures and traumas with society, with others, and with ourselves can be experienced as a result of not being experienced as our full selves or when we are reduced to attributes, parts, or fragments rather than as fully human. At times, we can even begin to believe that this is all we are worth or engage in scrambling to live a life of scarcity not believing we deserve a life of abundance. Our life force, though, knows that we need more.

Counseling with a healthy dose of sarcasm, swearing, and authenticity. We all know that life isn't easy. Everyone of us is challenged whether it's everyday life struggles, relationship problems, infertility, life transitions, or other mental health concerns. The strain of these stressors can build until you find yourself completely exhausted and overwhelmed. It takes strength to recognize that you need a little help. I'm hoping to help clients who are willing to be challenged, are seeking empathy, and are ready to make changes. It is my hope that clients can leave therapy feeling more centered and more capable to face life.

Life is a journey that often consists of this constant and intricate dance between our desire to be at peace with who we are now, while becoming our ideal selves. Productivity culture can often contribute to our living in an internally anxious space that leads to a poor sense of self and creates urgency around evolving and growing. Not only can this dissonance make it difficult to enjoy the ride, but it can also negatively influence our relationships with others as we struggle to navigate the nuances of this journey. How can these desires live harmoniously? How do we find peace within ourselves and in our relationships with others?

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.
