I specialize in working with couples using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy to identify troublesome relational patterns in a non-blaming way.
Life can be confusing, even overwhelming at times, and it takes courage to ask for help. I provide a safe, supportive place for you to express where you are on your journey and to explore what you truly want for your life. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families who are motivated to find new ways of coping and relating.

My clinical approach is based in Attachment theory and Emotionally Focused Therapy while also using experiential techniques, DBT and mindfulness practices.
My passion comes from life experiences & my desire to create positive changes in life. We all get stuck & that's part of being imperfectly human. There are times in life when we need someone to walk beside us in that stuckness entering the darkness - creating safety - allowing light to shine in new ways. Mindfully contemplating new ways of viewing & dealing with emotions & patterns surrounding emotions can be liberating, healing and life altering. I act as a choreographer of conversations, aimed to explore emotional connections & attachment injuries and impasses. As humans, we have a biological need to feel safe, secure & connected in our relationships.

I genuinely love people. It's a part of who I am. My personal experiences with childhood trauma, family relationships, religion, and the sciences have granted me opportunities to empathize with and understand a diverse range of emotional, mental, and relational issues and to apply effective treatment methods for my clients. I am aware that my privilege and life opportunities require me to be intentional about providing a safe space for my clients, especially those who have experienced marginalization and societal oppression and I consistently strive to do so.

My work is guided by Emotionally Focused Therapy and attachment theory, and I integrate mindfulness and other modalities into my work according to your needs and goals for therapy.
Struggling to conceive, adding a child to the family and going through pregnancy and postpartum periods, and adoption are some of the most challenging life transitions. It may feel overwhelming, isolating or lead to physical and mental exhaustion. Receiving compassionate therapeutic support during my own journey to parenthood led me to choose a career as a therapist. Another area that may be extremely difficult to navigate is sexuality and intimacy in a relationship. It could be discouraging and hard to know where to start. I am here to assist you with these challenges and to grow your own capacity to change your experiences.

Life is difficult (M. Scott Peck). I remember reading that in his book and thought yes, it is! And sometimes we don’t have the tools to manage the difficult times or move through and beyond them. That is why I became a therapist because life is difficult and sometimes, we need support and help to move forward. My goal is to establish a safe environment where adults and children can take the time to process difficulties in life. Through this process you will find your strengths, develop new ways of coping and discover new insights. I enjoy working with both children and adults in a variety of areas, including childhood and adult tra

Maybe you've been here before, clicked out of the tab, only to search again later. It is daunting scrolling through the pictures and trying to find the right face. You know...the one with whom you can share your story. The story lurking back in the corner of your mind that you might not feel ready to face. We all have a story to tell. Getting to know our own stories can be scary, terrifying even. It can be painful. However, finding the right person to help you learn about yourself is a task totally worth hanging in there—for a few more clicks, some e-mails, maybe some phone calls.

I believe the purpose of therapy is to support people in gaining personal insight, understanding of others perspectives, and integrating this information while planning new and improved responses and courses of action. As we are able to discover and express our hidden emotions and create new relational responses we then have the potential to change a distressed and rigid relationship into a more secure, safe and satisfying one. My commitment is to devote my full attention to you during our time together and to work with you as supportively, competently, responsibly, and professionally as I am able.

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. Gig Harbor 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.
