I view the relationship between the client and therapist as the most important aspect of therapy. I value creating a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space in which clients feel comfortable being open about their experiences. I spend time getting to know my clients, listening to their needs, and meeting them where they are. I utilize an integrative approach to treatment, emphasizing emotion-focused and interpersonal process theories, along with evidence-based techniques.

*Not taking new patients at this time**Life can be overwhelming and emotional when children and adolescents are struggling with mental health concerns and challenges. Trauma leaves feelings of anxiety, depression, worthlessness that can make everyday interactions a struggle. Individuals need to feel safe, secure, feel valued and have a sense of belonging to fully participate in their lives. Treatment options should focus on their developmental stage, strengths and values. Building self-esteem, confidence and self image is the first step to healing.

Through an honest, trusting collaborative relationship I endeavor to facilitate my client's capacity to create healthy relationships, both with themselves and others.

Feeling stuck and not knowing which way to turn? Feeling overwhelmed and not sure how to ask for help? Not sure what to try next? I have been there. Unsure, overwhelmed, and afraid of what I might discover if I looked inside. That is where I began my own journey back in 1987. That is how I know that there is hope. It is unfortunate, that we don’t get to pick our parents or early care givers. For many of us, the experiences from early childhood, shape who we are today and how we interact with the world around us. These experiences are powerful influences on how we cope with life stress and even the partners we chose in life.

I love working with people who feel pushed out of mainstream society due to their wonderful uniqueness- such as persons who are LGBTQ+, BIPOC, neurodivergent, or who have developmental delays, chronic physical or mental concerns. Telehealth therapy is really wonderful so you can meet from the comfort of your home. I truly enjoy using a technique called solution-focused so we can see change very quickly.

As a military spouse myself for nearly 30 years, I've helped many military families navigate the unique challenges of military culture. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which treats the effects of traumatic or difficult life circumstances, emotional concerns, and relational issues.

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.
