My Approach to Helping

My specialty is couples therapy and family therapy. Individuals, Couples, and Parents who are desperate for meaningful change in their relationship and seek to create relationships that heal can benefit from personalized therapeutic attention. When working with couples and families, my treatment protocol incorporates Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short-term treatment approach whose goal is the reconnection between partners. Emotionally Focused Therapy has the highest empirically validated success rates in the field of couples therapy. EFT understands how couples become unbalanced and then provides them with the steps to restore their emotional balance and intimacy.
Our work together is designed to provide insight into the negative and positive emotional patterns within oneself and between you and your partner or family members. Couples and Family EFT Therapy can provide the tools to restore emotional balance, decrease bickering and conflict and heal from relationship injuries.
I work in a collaborative, accessible, responsive and respectful manner with my clients. I know it takes a lot of courage for clients to come into my office and explore difficult issues. I provide a safe, comfortable environment for my clients to explore issues that block connection while helping them heal and learn to reconnect. I provide a free 30 minute phone consultation to determine if my work is a good fit for your needs. Please call or email to schedule a free phone consultation.

More Info About My Practice

Teen support groups: 14 to 17 years.
I offer weekly teen group sessions to address issues of depression, anxiety and peer relationships. The group's focus is on working with teens through creative methods such as: art, and movement to teach mindfulness and meditation skills. Having mindfulness and meditation skills helps to decrease significant symptoms of anxiety and depression, and increase coping skills to deal with peer and self esteem issues. This support group will focus on the teen's strengths while helping the teen to increase their tolerance of difficult situations that they encounter in the home, school and community. There will be a maximum of 6 people in the group. Group members are expected to attend all 6 sessions. Group fee $30.
