My approach is grounded in the desire to assist clients to gain insight, deeper understanding and emotional clarity through Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Attachment theory, and Internal Family Systems.
Stuck in a rut and using unhelpful coping skills to remedy the situation? Feeling overwhelmed and frustrated? Finding the pain of the past clouding the joy of the present? Whether this is impacting how you cope personally or getting in the way of connecting with your loved one; I want to work with you on a journey of restoring connection and building peace through emotional healing. It is my goal that we work together to build a trusting, nonjudgmental relationship from which we can explore places of pain, write new stories of hope, and support growth.

Therapy is a process of self discovery, insight, deep emotional healing and positive change. I provide a safe and compassionate space for you to process your unique life experiences. Together, we can make connections, gain insight and question some of the underlying, unconscious, and outdated patterns that may be keeping you stuck or holding you back. My primary interests are working with both men and women with anxiety, depression, addiction, life transitions, relationship challenges, emotional abuse, and early childhood trauma. Additionally, I enjoy couples work and have extensive training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.

I am trained in EMDR and in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) for couples work.
Navigating the high's and low's of our lives is hard work. It can be exacerbated by the painful feeling of being unworthy of love or belonging, the need to compare ourselves to our peers, or the belief that we must embody this “perfect persona” to keep our world from falling apart. You do your best to keep up but you ultimately end up feeling confused, defeated and ashamed. How is it that the harder you work the more you feel like an imposter in your professional and relational worlds?

With couples I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), employing attachment-based interventions.
I strive to create a therapeutic environment where you feel comfortable expressing whatever is on your mind without fear of judgment. I believe that you are the expert in your own healing, and I will work collaboratively with you to identify and reach your treatment goals. I use strengths- based approaches while incorporating evidence based methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to stimulate the brain’s natural ability to heal and address problems stemming from trauma.

Informed by developmental neurobiology and emotionally focused experiential psychotherapies, I aim to be a gentle collaborator in your process of integration and transformation towards the person you aspire to be, and all that brings you purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.
It takes courage to seek out therapy, so congratulations on taking the first step in your journey of therapeutic healing and connection to self and others. What happens in the therapeutic setting in conjunction with lifestyle enhancements can, over time, bring about lasting change. With gentle facilitation, you can increase awareness of body and mind and enhance mood, motivation, agency, and integration of skills. These self-improvements allow for a more self-directed life that can be lived more fully through consciously curated personal values and choices. I have worked with children, teens, young adults, adults, and families.

My training is in emotionally focused and experiential therapies.
**Now Accepting New Clients** Folks often seek out therapy when they begin to feel like they are bumping up against some discomfort or resistance in their lives. Often, life moves so quickly that it is difficult to explore these stuck points and what may be lying a bit deeper beneath the surface. In the therapy room, you will have the time and space to slow down. Together, we may uncover relational patterns or internal maps of the world you hold that are causing you anxiety or distress which ultimately prevents you from moving toward an intentional, authentic life.

I provide psychotherapy, EMDR, and guidance for adults, couples, families, and adolescents. My ideal client is one who is ready to begin the journey towards a better functioning family, and/or a happier lifestyle. The best outcomes for children involve working with parents and the family system, as well as the child. I specialize in trauma-informed cognitive-behavioral therapy and EMDR; as well as attachment-based psychotherapy. With couples, I primarily use the Gottman Method and Emotionally-Focused Therapy. In my work with adults I vary between cognitive behavioral with mindfulness approaches with underpinnings of attachment theory and a strengths perspective.

New couples are often reluctant to seek help. Be it stigma surrounding couple's therapy or feeling like they are "not old enough," couples often wait until resentment and unhappiness have grown to distressing levels before reaching out for help. This has only become more true as more folx are spending time at home due to the COVID pandemic. According to relationship expert Dr. John Gottman, couples often endure an average of six years of unhappiness before seeking help. Why let years of resentment build up when you can spend that time strengthening your bond and finding new ways to overcome and adapt to life's inevitable conflicts?

The idea behind RePair Therapy is renewal. And not just for couples—for individuals too. Maybe you're in a new relationship after a break-up or divorce, and you don't want to make the same mistakes twice. Maybe this is a second marriage (or third, fourth) for you and your partner. Maybe you're divorced, but you still have to communicate and make major decisions with your ex about your children. Maybe you're coping with a new divorce and need to find a way to reinvent yourself and your life. I specialize in Emotionally Focused Couples therapy and take United Insurance.

My couples aim to improve their communication, conflict management, emotional and sexual connection, and trust. They wish to grow together, restore their curiosity, create shared goals, and have deeper conversations. My individual adults and teens often seek support in improving their relationships, processing difficult feelings or events, managing anxiety and stress, and making positive behavioral changes. They wish to explore, learn more about themselves, and grow as individuals.

In working with couples, I focus on the research based approaches of John Gottman and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
The possibilities for change, healing, and well-being often aren't trusted if you are dealing with depression, anxiety, or difficult circumstances. My goal is to provide support and safety for you to explore and understand problems with emotions, relationships, and painful experiences. It is possible to come to terms with difficult issues, accept (not like) these human experiences, and move through them to change. Tapping into your own innate healing power allows for caring connections, emotional safety, and growth.

I also bring skills from John Gottmann's work, Stan Tatkin's work, and especially from the emotionally focused work of Sue Johnson.
Clients describe my therapeutic style as interactive, warm, and reassuring. It isn't easy to disclose personal challenges, but my clients have responded pretty quickly to my efforts to build rapport, explore issues, and experiment with solutions. Sometimes this work has been about learning new coping skills, and sometimes the work has been about digging deeply into the past to uproot old patterns that dampen the spirit. In my work with clients--whether individual or couples--I include a focus on integrating body awareness into the work of the heart and mind, so that more profound healing may take place.

My practice is grounded in an experiential, emotionally focused approach to healing, drawing from transformative modalities such as AEDP, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) mindfulness, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology and Somatic Experiencing.
My approach is based first and foremost on offering you a safe, supportive space in which you can feel free to explore, change and heal. By examining your direct experience, we can observe the habitual reactions, limitations, and outdated stories that prevent you from feeling the full richness of life. Engaging your moment to moment experience will allow you to develop a full appreciation of who you are, and move you toward the life you want to live.

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. Austin 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.
