My Approach to Helping

Relationships are complicated and often bring emotional pain, loneliness, anxiety, and discouragement. Committing to someone requires courage and strength.

I work with couples, families, and individuals applying the principles of EFT which is a research-based treatment for clients seeking emotional connection and fulfillment in relationships. EFT helps clients understand the interactional patterns that cause emotional disconnection. I would love to offer you these tools, deeper understanding, and helpful insight as you seek to repair your most important relationships.

I believe that feeling respected & safe are key to a successful therapeutic relationship. In me, you will find a calm & gentle presence, a listening ear, & someone who has a genuine interest in your life. I want to help you get to a place where you are thriving instead of just surviving. I look forward to hearing from you.

As part of Chenal Family Therapy PLC, I consult with our team of therapists and psychiatrists who specialize in different issues, ensuring that all possible treatment approaches are considered. If we encounter problems outside my areas of expertise, I can provide seamless referrals, including testing and medication management, to get you the needed help.
