My Approach to Helping

I believe that everyone has a story to tell and that the most powerful way to help someone is to simply listen. I love working with women and couples. I enjoy helping women who have experienced trauma, abusive or toxic relationships and are seeking to heal and grow. I also enjoy working with couples who are dating, engaged, married or considering marriage. We learn about relationships first from our family of origin which influence our perceptions, thoughts and behaviors about the world and how we interact with others. I primarily utilize approaches and techniques of Gottman, EFT, CBT and Person Centered therapies.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have 8 years of experience working with the adult population. Over the last 5 years I've had the opportunity to work with teens and young adults who have experienced various abusive relationships. Our understanding of how relationships work originate from our family of origin. We learn attitudes and behaviors from our caregivers and many times these behaviors are toxic, dysfunctional or destructive. I can help with understanding the patterns in your relationships or behaviors that create strife or stress. I use cognitive behavioral therapy to help you to identify unhealthy thoughts and behaviors and replace them with healthy ones to creating meaningful change.

I have been trained in Gottman I therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy for marital and couples therapy. The goal of Gottman therapy is to assist clients with disarming conflict and fostering intimacy, respect and affection. The goal for Emotionally Focused Therapy helps to create a secure attachment for each partner. This is achieved by helping the couple to support their partner in creating a positive sense of couples of "self" and the ability to regulate their own emotions.
