My Approach to Helping

Lasting Change Is Possible For Your Relationship! Using evidence-based relationship modalities such as EFT and other highly effective resources such as PACT - The Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy and NVC - Non-Violent Communication.

Your Relationship Should Be A Refuge From Life\'s Challenges, Rather Than An Additional Source of Struggle!

Couples, families, parents & children: Are you not feeling heard, understood or cared about? Are your feelings disregarded? Too much conflict or criticism? Is she withdrawing or unwilling to talk? Not feeling valued or supported? Growing apart? Little affection? Mistrust or dishonesty? Feeling unsafe, forgotten or dropped? I effectively help couples & families form safe & secure connection based on empathic & emotional connection, trust, compassion, authenticity, gratitude & accountability. You\'ll be there for each other, know you matter & be able to count on each other. You’ll learn to calm & soothe each other, utilize reflective listening, “love practices”, repair skills & many other tools.

What you should look for in a relationship therapist - safe, kind, sensitive & compassionate, with a true understanding of what you’re going through & how difficult it is - highly educated & knowledgeable about how to shift your relationship from pain & hardship to harmony & ease and has a full spectrum of skills & tools to do this effectively.

What should my relationship therapist know? She should have a deep understanding of: Attachment needs & styles, trauma, the brain & nervous system in relationships, childhood issues, relationship modalities such as EFT, PACT & NVC, Non-Violent-Communication, Somatic awareness & the practice of Self-Love. I bring all of this education, as well as experience, to my work with relationships.

I help couples & families unravel the mystery of relating & master the art of crafting a deeply soulful relationship filled with magic, rich & dynamic connection & the treasure of intimacy that we all crave - You\'ll also find freedom from the toxicity of stress, shame, blame, abuse & betrayal - & my strongest intention is to help you become wise guides for yourselves:)

More Info About My Practice

Essentially, I believe people just want to feel good & live fulfilling lives. I believe this is possible when we have outlets for healing, healthy relationships, self-compassion, purpose, emotional intelligence & a calm mind. I help clients cultivate such a life with my life experience, education, wisdom, compassion & guidance.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Not all therapists are alike! Many are not trained to provide couples therapy or they just don't enjoy it. I specialize in and LOVE providing couples therapy. It's also critical that you feel safe and comfortable with your therapist. A good connection with your therapist will serve as a foundation for all of the transformational work you do:) I continuously check in with my clients to be certain we have clear, clean & comfortable relationships.
