My Approach to Helping

My philosophy is simple:
Believe in my client so that they can learn to believe in themselves. I'm not just the person you talk to. I work to pass on years of experience and skills so that you can take the next step with confidence.

Can't stop arguing? Not getting the love you want? We can change that. while I work from an attachment lens, to meet your specific needs my skills include:

For anxiety and depression, I offer a lifetime of personal experience with ZERO judgment, using EFT to help my client understand the pain cycles that are killing their moods.

For trauma, I offer EMDR; a great therapy that often sees results in a surprisingly short amount of sessions.

For couples and relationships, I am trained in Imago as well as the Gottman method; two GREAT ways to help you see your love life differently.

More Info About My Practice

For the past 11 years, I've worked as a teacher, mentor, and therapist helping people see their life differently. Teens, adults, couples...working with me is about learning to communicate effectively so that you argue less, connect better, and say what's really on your minds. Get closer to your partner, spark up your love life, reconnect as a family, speak with confidence as a young adult. My practice is simply about helping people feel seen, safe, and secure in their life.

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

Couples are my passion. Whether it be a marriage, parents struggling to stay connected with young children, long-term partners, or even new loves. If you're looking for help I assume it's because you don't want to lose that special person. Our love life is what brings excitement and meaning to our lives and is what the future generation is built on. Don't risk losing that, lasting change is possible.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Finding the right therapist can be hard. Rather than telling your story again and again and spending a lot of money in the process, Call me. Let's set up a free consultation. I'll help you pinpoint what's going on, help you make a plan that works for you, and if I'm not a good fit for you I will help you find someone who is. Stop struggling alone.
