Life is short. When you feel unhappy with yourself, in your relationship, or are beset with worry and fears, you are unable to really live. Uncertain times can place us in survival mode, unable to appreciate our relationships or simply live in the moment.
I believe that everyone deserves the chance to live a life that is not based in suffering. From my most early years, I have felt that a life never really lived is the greatest tragedy. In therapy, I want to help you to define your own path towards more meaning and fulfillment.
It has been my experience that having a safe space to explore thoughts and emotions with a thoughtful, experienced therapist is one of the best ways to gain clarity, renewed hope, and heal. I am warm and authentic and my clients tell me that they feel comfortable with me from the very start.
I have over 20 years of experience in providing focused, effective treatment in helping people to overcome anxiety, depression, and problems in their relationships. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which relates to what is most vital to us–the bonds that we have with the most important others in our lives.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is the most highly effective form of couples therapy, with 90% of couples reporting significant improvement and 3 out of 4 couples moving to complete recovery. In EFT, I help you to become aware of self-defeating, repetitive cycles in your relationship which have left you feeling isolated and unhappy. Experiences in therapy teach you to interact with your partner in more satisfying ways which lead to more closeness and connection. In my work with couples, partners reestablish and even deepen the closeness in their relationship.
True change, growth, and learning only occur in the context of new experience. By helping you to tune into your inner experience, I provide you with an emotionally transformative experience which you can truly internalize. I use evidence-based approaches which engage the emotional or right brain more, such as Emotionally Focused Therapy, experiential focusing, body-focused therapy, and Relational therapy. Interactions in the therapy relationship help you to learn new, more positive ways of relating to yourself and to others.
