Do you long for the days when you and your partner seemed happy and not every conversation left you feeling angry, sad, or misunderstood? Do you feel like you are banging your head against a wall having the same old fight? It can be very painful when the relationship you care the most about is not working or is causing you pain. I am certified in EFT, Emotionally Focused Therapy. Many therapists say they work with couples but when your relationship is struggling you deserve to work with someone who has experience and training with a solid, well researched approach that provides a plan to help you.

I completed an externship through ICEEFT in November 2020 in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
I believe that everyone deserves a space to feel heard as they navigate in a new direction, away from feeling disconnected, stuck, and isolated. I will collaborate with you by helping you identify and shift negative or limiting perceptions, in order to create room instead for empowering perspectives that can better serve you going forward. I provide a safe, supportive, and warm environment as you begin to face whatever obstacles that initially brought you to therapy, and help you manage the conflicting feelings that often accompany this process.

Are you challenged by disconnects in relationships, life events, transitions, communication issues, or the “stuff” of life? Are you feeling disappointed, worried, sad or helpless? Do you feel stuck?

Life can be challenging. Perhaps you are feeling stuck in your marital or relational issues. Maybe, you are feeling hopeless after the loss of a loved one or job. When you need help and direction most, therapy can guide you through challenges. I believe that anyone can excel with sufficient guidance and support. My areas of concentration are couples’ issues, family conflicts, life transitions, self-esteem, trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, emotional healing, spiritual issues, and more. Also, I use EMDR to help you with trauma and childhood experiences.

I have advanced training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), and Brene Brown's The Daring Way, all of which I draw upon to inform my clinical practice.
For many people, psychotherapy is a powerful resource for growth. Our emotions can be complicated and may feel confusing or even overwhelming when trying to tackle them alone. I am an experienced Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in private practice in Falls Church and Fairfax, Virginia. I create a safe, non-pathologizing, trusting environment for you to examine the feelings you tend to hide away from others (and often even from yourself). Together, we can explore and learn from the conflicts that keep you stuck in order to create lasting, positive change in your life.

In couples therapy, I utilize Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy to explore the different ways each partner deals with emotions and conflict.
Have you been hurt by a failed relationship, felt disconnected, or lonely? Been fearful or experienced hopelessness? Or have you been in an intense fog, desperate to climb out of the dark pit of grief? You are not alone. I work with couples, families, teens, and adult individuals looking to foster connection, security, healing, and hope. I work with relationship experiences and patterns that don't offer what you need, the hurt or loss of a failed relationship, young relationships, long-term marriages, military couples, adoption, and couples living with loss.

Accepting new clients! I have over 16 years of clinical experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems, and divorce struggles. I'm relaxed and easy to talk to and ask thought-provoking questions that helps you think through issues without being judgmental. Helping people is my passion and I enjoy seeing clients feel better. It's hard to know where to set boundaries, as 'helping' those we love can often hinder their growth. Do we let go or is that a cop-out? I can help you take small steps towards effective changes.

I have completed advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, an empirically validated model of therapy that has been shown to enhance closeness between partners, and continue to grow under the mentorship of Dr.
So much can get in the way of feeling close to those we love, and sometimes even to ourselves. All the many stressors we experience can leave us feeling like we don't have much left to give, and our relationships and well-being suffer as a result. But strong bonds with loved ones can be an amazing source of strength and healing. My work is primarily with couples who desire increased connection. I also work with families and with individuals struggling in their relationships.

As your therapist, it is my intention to be a fellow traveler on your path towards understanding who you are and what you need. In our work together there is opportunity to utilize the creative process as a means of exploring the concepts of healing and recovery. While in an environment rooted in safety and respect, art therapy offers the opportunity to explore, express and contain the spectrum of emotions we experience as human beings that can often leave us feeling overwhelmed and disheartened.

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. Fairfax 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.
