You are really struggling with those places of deep woundedness within your soul and/or your relationship with your spouse/partner. Because of this, although you have immense value as a human being you may currently be in a place of doubting this to be true.

The top modalities that I use are CBT, DBT, and EMDR.

In my work, I use a blend of CBT, Emotional Freedom Tapping (EFT), attachment theory, psychodynamic theory, Imago theory, and the Gottman method .
Are you suffering from the end of a relationship? A job? Do you feel like you are in crisis, or no longer feel like yourself? Maybe you’re realizing that your life as it is in this moment is not working for you. Perhaps you feel alone, feel lost, and at a loss for what to do. Congratulations on taking the first step to finding relief and taking control. Life is too short to surrender to bad relationships, hold grudges, let trauma control us, or to be anxious or angry all the time. You may feel stuck, but there is hope.

EMDR, Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy, the Gottman Method , and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are my primary approaches.
I have been counseling individuals, couples, and families for over 25 years. I help couples strengthen their emotional connection, communication patterns, and parenting skills. 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. I have seen restoration and recovery from trauma, loss, betrayal, and other hardships - even hardships that happened many years ago.

Gottman Method Therapists
The Gottman Method For Making Relationships Work shows that to make a relationship last, couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each other's hopes for the future. Drs. John and Julie Gottman have shown how couples can accomplish this by paying attention to what they call the Sound Relationship House, or the seven components of healthy relationships.
