I have special training and experience in utilizing Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Gottman Theory, Primary First Relationships (attachment therapy), and Trauma focused CBT for individual/couples dealing with mood disorders, behavioral problems, and addictions.
I believe that your connection with others and focusing on your own emotions, thoughts, and behaviors is essential for good mental health. I believe that productive therapy for couples, children, adults and families requires active and consistent involvement, honesty, and openness to change. I utilize humanistic, strength-based, multi-cultural, client centered, and emotionally focused views for clients needing assistance with relationship problems, mood disorders, teen and adolescence issues, and trauma.

Life is a journey. Sometimes we need a sounding board to sort out our thoughts and feelings and gain a new perspective on life. My goal is to help you be the happiest person you can be. I specialize in working with clients with complex trauma, which is trauma related to childhood experiences. I have expertise in working with adult children of narcissistic parents.

When forming this practice, I was reminded of being a child playing outside. Can you recall playing tag at recess? It seemed inevitable that at some point, someone would get so close to being tagged and yell, "I'm on T." What a fleeting gift of childhood - to just call 'time' when the pressure got too high. I have spent 8 years working with children, teens, and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, social skills/relationship difficulties, ADHD, OCD, and more. If you feel that there is something blocking you from experiencing a life you can enjoy, therapy might be right for you.

I believe that as humans we have the ability to be a whole and complete individual. And there are times when this inner strength is overpowered by sudden or ongoing anxiety, unhappiness, and at times even anger. Have you found yourself being stuck in these emotions? Or feeling that no one understands the intensity of the life challenges you're experiencing? I provide a safe environment where we can explore your values and needs together and move towards being the version of self that you aspire to be.

Seeking therapy and being open is a courageous step that requires vulnerability and commitment. I have supported many adolescents in expressinging their struggles and how they can use their resources to achieve goals. With the client's help, I gain a better understanding of their needs and provide tools and recommendations that may not be intuitive, but profoundly helpful. My goal is to work through barriers that create pain and suffering and to find new ways of coping that increase happiness, improve relationships with self and others and overall functioning of life.

My passion is helping people, or trying to help people as best I can. I know realistically I can't connect with everyone who comes in or solve everyone's problems, but I can offer support, a different perspective, options, empathy and kindness. I recognize that our state of affairs as a country is strained, there is a lot of conflict and I believe people are really struggling to maintain their mental health. I know it's really tough some days and that can be very rough on children and families who have multi-systemic problems and who also don't know who to resolve their challenges or overcome barriers.

Welcome to Intentional Step Therapy. I am excited you are ready to take this step. As humans we all want to live a full rich life. We want to understand ourselves and to feel “worthy” “loved” or “enough”. We want to be authentic and live by our values even when we are not sure what that means. Anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, life experience, that stress that won’t go away are just barriers to living your best self. Together we can start a journey to reduce those barriers and begin a journey into your best self.

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.
