Do you feel distant from your partner or wish your marriage was more supportive? Maybe you blame your spouse or even yourself? Emotionally Focused couples Therapy helps to create connection and heal core issues. This scientifically studied therapy provides a safe place for exploring and healing the rigid cycle of negative interactions that are preventing you from the rich and satisfying relationship you both deserve.

Are you depressed and overwhelmed? Maybe you wake up in the middle of the night worrying? Do you wish you could feel self-assured, peaceful, and deeply engaged with your life? Perhaps you think that if you could just rid yourself entirely of your depression or anxiety, your life would be good.

Believe it or not, your anxiety or your depression are probably not the problem! Why? Because everybody feels depressed or anxious sometimes. The problem may actually be the way you handle your depression or anxiety. Maybe you criticize or blame yourself all the time. Perhaps you may find yourself coming up with the same solution or applying the same set of behaviors all the while thinking, 'This time it will be different."

With compassion as our guide, I'll help you begin to experience and incorporate skills of resiliency and self-acceptance. As you ease up on yourself or begin to apply more flexible solutions, you may find yourself opening to and embracing your life in ways that nourish and fulfill yourself.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Are you jumpy or nervous in traffic because of a recent accident? Maybe you experienced a recent distressing event and just can't seem to get back to normal. Does a smell or sound suddenly take you back to the incident? EMDR can be an effective way to help handle trauma or PTSD. Over 20 scientific controlled studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of EMDR.

Do presentations make you nervous? Maybe certain situations trigger anxiety that just doesn't seem logical to you. Perhaps you simply can't shake a lack of self-confidence. EMDR can be helpful in tackling core negative beliefs or creating new mental movies that allow you to cope better with stressful situations.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Think of a highly successful person that you admire. Now imagine that person has a problem. How do you imagine this person you respect would handle the issue? Would they ignore it and pretend it's not happening? Would they apply the same solution again and again, even though it's not working? Of course, they wouldn't!

Successful people face obstacles head on and seek expertise when their solutions fail. They pursue new ways of thinking and apply new skills. So when you choose to face whatever issue is bothering you by going to therapy, congratulate yourself! You are using the thinking and the skills sets of people who thrive at life!
