My Approach to Helping

As a seasoned Couples Therapist, I am deeply committed to helping couples navigate the complexities of relationships and achieve greater understanding and harmony. With a wealth of experience and specialized training in couples counseling, I guide partners towards cultivating healthier connections and resolving conflicts constructively.

My approach centers on creating a safe and inclusive space where both partners can openly express their thoughts and emotions. By employing evidence-based techniques such as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman Method, and communication-enhancing strategies, I empower couples to rebuild trust, improve communication, and rekindle intimacy.

I believe that every relationship is unique, and I tailor my therapeutic interventions to the specific needs and dynamics of each couple. By focusing on identifying patterns, enhancing emotional attunement, and fostering empathy, I aim to facilitate sustainable positive change and facilitate lasting improvements in the relationship.

With a passion for promoting healthy and fulfilling relationships, I remain dedicated to ongoing education and staying abreast of the latest research and advancements in couples therapy. My ultimate goal is to guide couples towards a deeper connection and mutual growth, empowering them to build a resilient and loving partnership.

I have specialized training in maternal mental health, pregnancy, postpartum, and pregnancy loss. I offer a 30 minute FREE initial consultation so we can speak openly about your unique situation and how I can best support you. I can often get clients same week appointments. Warmly, Dr. Awalt.

More Info About My Practice

During your first session you can expect a warm, understanding, empathetic ear to listen to your life challenges. We will walk through the "pain points" in your relationship(s) and identify goals. Next, we will begin the deep work of understanding your unique history from childhood to where you are today. Together we will learn about one another's unique goals and values so we can develop strong, stable, and mature relationships that bring joy to your heart and life. I am here as your working support system to help you navigate the hard conversations and travel alongside you on your growth path.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I firmly believe that the purpose of psychotherapy is for people to gain the support and insight that they need in order to make change in their lives. Change is going to look different for every person but includes accepting yourself as you are, understanding why you do the things you do, gaining insight to change a habit, or better understand your partner and increase relationship satisfaction.
