My Approach to Helping
If you know why you're on this website, you're ready to get to the bottom of it, and you're feeling nervous and excited, welcome! I have been practicing therapy for over 10 years. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I can work with individuals or relationships, but I will always think of you (and the problems we work on together) in the larger context of your relationships, your past, and the systems you live within. I want to support your healing in a way that is affirmative and meaningful to YOU!
I specialize in Brainspotting (EMDR's attachment-oriented cousin) where the goal is for the therapist to support the client to safely experience powerful, whole-brain, body-based processing and heal themselves. I also specialize in Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), the gold standard for couples therapy where the goal is to create a secure bond within the relationship. From our very first session, we will work together to create meaningful therapy goals specific to what you want out of your sessions with me. You deserve to get measurably better! The more healing that needs to be done, the longer therapy takes, but my goal is always to "work myself out of a job" because you have achieved what we set out to accomplish.
