My Approach to Helping
I am a mindfulness oriented, solution-focused, relationship therapist and behavioral wellness coach dedicated to human flourishing. I provide online behavioral wellness coaching to couples struggling with relationship distress and individuals struggling with addiction, anxiety, or depression. I welcome diversity, including LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and heterosexual couples and individuals. I am passionate about creating new models for delivery of psychotherapy and behavioral wellness coaching through web-based technology and reimagining traditional psychotherapy delivery models in ways that remove barriers to access and reduce the stigma associated with emotional cognitive suffering.
More Info About My Practice
I offer you my full attention as a gentle, compassionate and mindful companion who accepts you as you are, without judgment, focusing on your strengths, honoring your wisdom, and supporting your self-discovery as you seek your healing. I deeply trust being present to our suffering with empathic, attentive presence, exploring the paradox of change, that only when we accept ourselves as we are, here and now, are we able to change. This is an opening toward healing presence and a surrender to the creative energy of compassion which awakens us, over and over, to the healing that is possible.
My Therapy Focus
I realized early in my clinical practice that I wanted to focus on couples therapy. In addition to many hundreds of hours working with couples in distress, I have pursued training specific to couples therapy, including advanced training in both Emotion Focused Therapy and the Gottman approach. Many of the couples I work with come to therapy feeling lost in conflict cycles which they don't understand and desperately want to change. I understand how much courage it takes to reach out for help and to let another person get inside your relationship, especially when you are feeling hurt, discouraged, angry, or humiliated. What we are searching for is a safe place to explore what's not working in our relationships and to find support in creating solutions. I am truly passionate about helping couples heal and flourish.
