Does self-doubt rob you of feeling a sense of contentment and stability you desire? Do feelings of shame obstruct your ability to feel worthy of a loving relationship with yourself and others? Are self-esteem and confidence drowned out by nagging thoughts of: "I'm not good enough", "I'm a failure", "I'm not worthy of love"? Life transitions and unexpected events can resurface embedded and unresolved traumas that stick with us and impact our emotional health later in life. Consequently you may find yourself overwhelmed by feelings of stress, anxiety and disconnection, unable to find a sense of peace and balance.

I take a holistic and integrative approach to therapy which involves integrating various elements of different theories and practice. I lean most heavily on approaches focused on how people’s thinking can change feelings and behaviors while also implementing an approach focused on helping clients achieve their highest potential. Instead of energy spent on the past or on negative behaviors, I emphasize the goodness in clients and work toward each person’s growth and self-actualization. I also use approaches oriented toward problem-solving including Hypnotherapy, NLP Brain Training, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and Coaching.

I always gravitated to jobs that entailed helping people: Teacher; Red Cross; Covenant House. I had also pursued seminary studies and was briefly on track to becoming a clergyman. Entry into grad school to study Counseling seemed the next natural step in my career path. But there was a more profound reason I became a Professional Helper, and that is my own lifelong struggles with anxiety and depression.

Important to functioning in a healthy manner as a human being is the fulfillment of the need to trust and feel safe. Many experiences in life can contribute to feelings of isolation and loneliness, mistrust of self and others, including God or a Higher Power, fear, resentment and anger, to name a few. Connection to nurturing, kind and loving relationships are important for healthy functioning. Human beings need to have a sense of belonging, feel they are important to others and are able to accept support from others. Interdependence is the goal.

I view therapy as a collaborative process where the client is the expert on themselves, and the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in creating change. It is important to have a safe, empowering, and supportive environment in order to examine hurtful relationship patterns and emotional difficulties, and in turn change negative self-evaluations to better respond to life's challenges. I am genuinely interested in and committed to helping my clients gain insight and express their needs in order to engage in more healthy relationships and live the life they want.

I take a warm, empathic approach and create a safe space to explore whatever may be holding you back from achieving more joy, connection, and authenticity in your life. I use evidence-based techniques to help you recognize patterns that are no longer serving you and to develop more adaptive coping skills. In addition to issues surrounding romantic relationships, I focus on individuals struggling with body image, perfectionism, feelings of imposter syndrome and addiction and the underlying shame. Therapy is a collaboration; together we'll set treatment goals, work toward those goals and evaluate our progress.

Under an integrative umbrella, I employ methods including mindfulness, CBT, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and experiential and expressive arts therapies.
Therapy can benefit you wherever you are in life, whether it's in the midst of a crisis, if you're feeling distant from a partner or your parents, or if you simply want to know yourself better. I view providing therapy as a sacred calling, and I am honored to empower clients to reach goals or explore the unknown. I use a systemic approach, helping individuals, couples, families, or groups in the context of their environments and identities. Together, we can grow and become the authors of our own stories. By accepting who we are and our imperfections, we increase our ability to love ourselves and connect more deeply with others.

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.
