I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), elements of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and mindfulness when working with individuals and couples.
I have been working with families and individuals in the counseling field since 2000. I also specialize in couples work. I accept cash/private pay only, but I believe in the benefits of cash pay. It provides the utmost privacy protection, the ability to schedule quickly and conveniently with no need to wait for insurance approval.

I feel very privileged to work in this field as a support for individuals and couples. Coming into counseling can be overwhelming, so I take time to develop the therapeutic relationship at a pace that is comfortable for you. My goal is to create a collaborative relationship where we are both committed to growth. All moods and emotions are welcome in-session, whether that’s celebration and laughter or sadness and anger (and anywhere in-between). Overall, I view counseling as a place for clients to be heard and valued each time they enter the space.

I have training in Emotionally Focused therapy, the Gottman method and Circle of Security Parenting.
As human beings, we want healthy and happy relationships. These are vital to our emotional and mental well-being. We want to be our honest, authentic selves and trust that others will be there for us. However, despite our best efforts, things can get in the way. Our emotions, our past, anxiety and depression all affect how we interact with people we care about. Counseling allows for you to sit with someone who has no judgement toward you and your circumstances. I am simply here to help.

My counseling approach is based in Adlerian, Person-centered, and Emotionally Focused therapies, as well as my Christian faith.
I believe it is possible to experience peace in any of life’s circumstances. One thing that comes between us and this peace, however, is our thoughts - without intentional direction for our thoughts, we tend to fixate on our fears, anxieties, and doubts. When this happens, we turn inward and lose connection with what we believe in and the people around us. As your counselor, I aim to guide you to a deeper understanding and validation of your current experience while empowering you to refocus your attention on what is true and life-giving, reestablishing a calming connection with your values, beliefs, and loved ones.

I use emotionally focused and attachment based interventions.
As we move through life's transitions, the things that worked to keep people close and to avoid pain often stop working effectively. We like familiarity, so change can feel overwhelming and impossible. We isolate, push others away, or cope in ways that have the opposite effect of what we are really wanting and needing. Trauma, anxiety or depression may feel insurmountable and leave us feeling confused and alone.

Having completed training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, I specialize in helping couples identify and overcome their pattern of disconnection by cultivating a secure emotional bond.
Do you feel disconnected? Do you feel a wall between you and a loved one? Do you feel like you are going around and around in circles but never moving forward? When clients come to see me they often feel hurt, numb, confused, frustrated, lost, or alone. I help clients identify the negative patterns they get caught in, connect with themselves and those they care about most, and support them in finding new solutions to old problems.

As a therapist, I am committed to individual and collective healing, operating from the belief that people change in the presence of other people. This is what makes the therapeutic experience so transformative – the relational work of therapy provides a new context where, together with a safe other, you can seek to understand and unlearn old patterns that no longer serve you, while learning to navigate through your inner and outer world with more courage and comfort. I work to create shared experiences based in curiosity and safety, speaking to the parts of you and your story that may feel stuck or alone.

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. Spokane 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.
