I use a Family Systems approach to understanding my clients while using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and The Change Triangle to help clients identify how their thoughts, emotions, and life experiences all work within how they view themselves and interact with the world around them.
Growing up, your emotions weren't validated, your body didn't feel like home, and your voice struggled to develop to its full potential. Maybe your childhood was a lot like mine, full of confusing moments and unwritten rules that you struggle to make sense of today. As your therapist, my goal is to provide a safe and gentle environment for you and your loved ones to process pain, past trauma, and new transitions as you journey through life. I teach my clients how to find the peace within through mindfulness practices, learning new coping strategies, setting intentional boundaries, and gently exploring how to love themselves fully.

I approach my clinical work from an attachment-focused, relational perspective and have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
If you and your partner feel caught in a negative cycle of conflict and distress, I can help to reorganize your relationship in a way that promotes positive experiences of healing and strengthens your emotional bond. In our work together, you will gain an understanding and awareness of these disrupting negative interaction patterns that are driven by deeper emotions and attachment distress. I’m passionate about helping couples and individuals learn more about their emotional needs and discover tools to step out of negative cycles. My goal is to help you build lasting secure relationships with the most important people in your life.

You keep thinking that this is just a stage or a passing behavior your child is going through. You stay up late searching online for books, articles, or blog posts looking for something new to try because nothing you do is working to help your child. The meltdowns, temper tantrums, yelling and the power struggles in your home are not how you pictured family life. It's too much noise, too much stress and the chaos is draining your energy. This is not the adventure you signed up for or learned about in Parenting 101. It's time for change.

I believe in embracing creative expression, growth, and inner wisdom. As a therapist, I love to explore alternative healing techniques and strength-focused interventions. I have great deal of experience working with people who have experienced trauma or are navigating crisis, grief, and/or loss. I love facilitating groups, training, and teaching experiences to promote community and individual learning. Working with teenagers is another passion of mine. Recently, I added Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy to my list of services. Give me a call if you would like to experience healing with horses!

My ideal client is someone that is open to being vulnerable; realizing their worth in this world and that they, too, deserve to be happy. Happiness is individualized and is not a "one-size-fits-all" narrative.

It’s getting harder and harder to get out of bed and face the day. You are tired of fighting - to have a different type of relationship, to make everyone around you happy. Tired of neglecting your own needs and of making yourself smaller. You feel guilt when you take time for yourself and feel overwhelmed with demands. In your relationship, you wonder if what you are asking for is fair. You are scared to bring it up because it may lead to a fight. Difficult memories and feelings come to the surface more and more and you aren’t sure how to handle it all on your own. You want to feel good about your life again.

I believe that each person seeking counseling has come to a point in life where the desire to change, heal, and grow outweighs the comfort & familiarity of staying the same. Each day, truth or lies are ruling our mind, will, & emotions. It shows up in the way we feel about ourselves, others, & the world around us. It is a great joy for me to work with individuals, couples, & families in an atmosphere of safety, deep compassion, and non-judgement to bring about real change, healing, & growth.

Life is difficult. There are so many things happening in the world right now. It can be hard to find someone who is free of burdens and turmoil in their own lives to talk to. Then there are those more specific things we may be dealing with that we cannot share with family or friends just yet. Counseling is a safe place to process and heal from most situations you may be facing right now whether it's relationship problems, job stress, time management or something more traumatic like domestic violence or a child who has experienced abuse. This is an opportunity to figure out how to start the healing process.

Supervised by Dr. Michael Conteras, LPC-S. The experiences that we have throughout our lives impact the way in which we interact with the world.These experiences can be major life events, chronic everyday stressors, or a mixture of both. Therapy is a place where we can explore these events and how they effect us. Out of this exploration we can gain insight, learn skills, and manage the distress we experience.

Sometimes the reasons for our struggles are clearcut; sometimes all we can identify is a sense of discontent or feeling stuck; and sometimes feelings or behaviors come up seemingly “out of the blue”. Whatever the struggle, we may end up feeling uneasy, uncomfortable, or overwhelmed. At times like these, some care, support, and an external perspective can help us regain understanding, balance, strength, and direction in our lives. My goal is to understand your struggles, as well as your strengths and gifts, so that I can collaborate with you in finding ways to use them in ways best suited to your growth and well-being.

I am here to help those who are struggling to enjoy life, whether that is due to depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relational distress, or life adjustments. Together we can discover the changes that will bring you peace, strength, and healing. It is important to me that you feel safe and understood. My goal is to help you understand how your life experiences have shaped the way you think and feel and how you relate to others. This insight can be used to challenge false beliefs you have created about yourself and the world. We cannot always control our circumstances, but we can learn to be secure within ourselves.

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. 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.
