My Approach to Helping
I am a mindfulness oriented, solution-focused, relationship therapist. I provide online therapy to couples struggling with relationship distress. I welcome diversity, including LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and heterosexual couples. 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 am sometimes awed, often humbled, and continually inspired by the courage my clients display in working with the psychological suffering in their lives. I am grateful for the gift of being their therapist, offering my own unique array of training, skills, and experience in ways that most support each of them in their unique journeys toward their preferred futures. Utilizing neurologically informed, emotionally focused, and mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral approaches, I help couples change how they think, feel, and behave in ways that address the distress they are experiencing. As my clients, I offer you my full attention, compassionately and mindfully, accepting you just as you are, without judgment. I will focus on your strengths, honor your wisdom, engage with you in your struggles to change what you want to change, and support your self-discovery. Working together, we create a safe space where this can happen, in the way it wants to happen, in you.
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.
