My Approach to Helping

I became a therapist because I wanted to help people become the best version of themselves and learn how to overcome the existing barriers to reaching that version. Sometimes those barriers look like a mix of internal struggles and external life stressors. You may find that you\'re at war with yourself and just need some new strategies on not just how to win that war, but how to also experience sustainable peace. You deserve to experience peace within. I’m committed to helping you get there!

My reasons and passion for working with couples is similar. I want to see couples win at this thing called relationship and partnership! I meet so many individuals who love each other deeply and just need some help getting out of what feels like a negative cycle of interaction. Many times, that cycle is fueled by a pattern of communicating riddled with misunderstandings, miscommunications, lack of transparency, discomfort with being vulnerable, rejection fears, unspoken needs and expectations, listening to respond, the list goes on....

I use an approach informed by the Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) model. This model prioritizes the exploration of feelings. Feelings often serve as the language of your soul (your mind, will, and emotions). That language is really important for each partner to know, understand, and acknowledge. So how does all that lovely language relate to how I help couples? In simpler terms, EFT provides me with a roadmap for: guiding each individual within the couple towards their inner most feelings, and navigating how to safely make room, and hold space for their partner’s emotions. This builds connection and deepens your bond. Consistent emotional safety and connection is what helps couples thrive! My job is to help you thrive and not just survive.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Not every therapist-client relationship will be the right fit. This doesn't mean that something is wrong with the therapist or the client. It's all about alignment and alliance. In order to do good work, a client needs to feel safe and comfortable bringing their full self and experiences into session. The therapist should also be comfortable, confident, and competent to help client with presenting challenges and support their growth.

A good therapist will always allow space for clients to share if they feel like the therapeutic relationship is not working effectively.
