My Approach to Helping
I strive to help couples strengthen their relationships, learn how to get their needs met by their partners, and achieve a fulfilling and satisfying relationship. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy to help you emotionally connect with your partner and stop having the repetitive arguments that keep you stuck and frustrated. It's never too late to get help to achieve the relationship you desire even if your partner is unwilling to come to counseling, I will work with you individually to make changes in the way you relate to your partner. I compassionately connect with individuals and couples with an open heart in order to help you heal and achieve the life you desire. I am certified in EMDR therapy which has been effective in helping clients reprocess trauma and get you unstuck from troubling negative thoughts or beliefs. I deeply respect my clients and am passionate about walking along side people on the journey toward greater health. I am trained in sex therapy and work with couples to improve their physical connection as well as their emotional connection.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy is truly a beautiful experience and with a great therapist can be a nurturing and safe exploration of the self. In couples therapy one gets to discover themselves in a way that is reflected in their partners by how they interact with each other. When this is done in a safe environment with the help of a skilled couples therapist, the results can be profound and rewarding.
