I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy and trauma-informed care, sometimes using EMDR to process trauma.
Now accepting clients for couple therapy: Clients tend to come into therapy with feelings like anxiety, sadness, resentment, or disappointment. Couples may have unresolved relationship conflicts, needing reconnection and healing. They may also be seeking help with infertility, birth loss or trauma, postpartum depression or anxiety, parenting issues, divorce, grief, or complicated childhood experiences that impact the current relationship. We work together to close the gaps of disconnection and bring you closer, repairing the ruptures you have with less pain and more vulnerability and safety.

I enjoy helping people find balance and discover/rediscover their inner strength while navigating through the challenging times and transitions in life. Life is full of surprises; while some are amazing, others can be devastating. No matter what the transition in life or presenting problem is, it's important you know you're not alone when facing adversity or staring down a big life change such as moving away for college or a job, having a baby, or getting divorced/breaking up. Asking for guidance during these transitions allows you to get the support you need to get you through the difficult times & get you back on track.

As a trauma-informed therapist, I am passionate about helping my clients shed their burdens and feel more empowered in their lives. I believe each of us has innate healing powers that that can become overcome by trauma, leaving us feeling stuck, frozen, or in states of panic. I typically blend EMDR with experiential, somatic, and mindfulness techniques. Using these approaches, I will provide you with practical tools to cope with and overcome the issues you are experiencing, while also helping to heal the underlying causes of those issues.

Whether you are struggling with issues like anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or self doubt, I have learned to trust that the therapeutic relationship can catalyze an upward spiral of healing and growth we all are wired for. Maybe you are curious about insecure patterns you have in relationships at home, work, and/or with friends, or you feel generally anxious, tense, stuck or shut down about life right now and you want to approach life from a place of security. I affirm your decision to reach out for support and guidance and believe that through our work together, you can not only feel better but thrive.

I offer therapy and evaluation (testing) services. Clients don't come to me because they are happy. They come, most likely, because they are in pain and hurt. They are tired of feeling stuck, and the fear, tears, and whatever seems to be causing them all. They aren’t interested in therapy because they want therapy. In fact, they are not even sure IF they want therapy—but they ARE sure they want to get unstuck and feel better. So, for you: here you are. . . not all that sure that this is going to help but damn sure you want to do something that might make a positive change and get your life moving forward again. I can help you.

Accepting New Clients! There are moments when life changes and we are left feeling like strangers to our self. When the changes are hoped for we’re surprised to feel out of place in our dreams. When the changes are nightmares we feel cut off from everyone around us. We long to return, or experience for the first time, that sense of coming home. Home, where we feel safe, at ease and accepted. It is my honor to sit beside you while you rediscover your place in the community and the relationships that matter to you. You will undoubtedly discover that you are more powerful and resilient than you dared to hope.

I provide a safe and supportive place to explore and heal the roots of my clients' struggles. I view counseling as a transformational process that enables clients to heal from past wounds and experiences in order to better connect with themselves, others, and God. Working from an attachment perspective, I enjoy helping my clients work through challenging personal and spiritual issues, life transitions, relationship difficulties, wounds from childhood, trauma and anxiety/stress. I believe that ultimately it is God's healing presence in the midst of this process that brings hope, freedom and restoration.

Do you feel chronically disconnected or stuck in unhelpful patterns despite "knowing better"? This misalignment might be affecting your physical health, your relationships, your sense of self, and your visions for the future. While many of the strategies you relied upon in early life were both necessary and adaptive, they can also become what hold you back later in life. What if we explore some of your origin stories and update those defaults to better reflect who you are, instead of who you believed you had to be? What if we deepen your self-belonging, thereby strengthening your capacity to connect more effortlessly with others?

Life in a human body is hard, and none of us were made to go through it alone. Healthy Relationships are what heal those parts of us that feel broken, shut off, or disconnected. In a healing therapeutic relationship, you can discover the place inside that was always whole, safe, and protected and regain those parts that you may feel are lost or damaged. Whether you are facing issues of anxiety, overwhelming stress, depression, anger, trauma, grief, paralyzing fear, that feeling of being stuck, or some other difficulty, together we will mindfully navigate life's many challenges with kindness, respect, and compassionate courage.

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.
