Clinical Specialties

Love is one of the hardest yet most rewarding human experiences available to us. It is an honor for me to learn your love story and be a part of your healing journey, whether that be reconnection with your partner or finding yourself again after the difficult and painful ending of a relationship.

I specialize in treating relational problems, working with couples and individuals to help them achieve more fulfilling relationships. Issues may include jealousy, highly critical stances, infidelity, poor boundary setting, insecurity, ineffective communication, break-up, divorce, depression and/or anxiety.

 

Theoretical Approach

My theoretical approach is humanistic, person-centered and collaborative. I use the following modalities in my therapeutic work:

Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Relational Life Therapy (RLT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) and Seeking Safety.

Therapeutic Style

Who doesn’t like to laugh? I’m not just your therapist telling you what to do and asking how you feel. I’m here to connect with you, I’m here to be HUMAN with you, and I like to laugh too.

Change is not possible without insight and self-awareness. I’m going to help you get to know yourself. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Therapy with me is a two-way street. It is a collaborative relationship of give and take. Sometimes the best work happens when we aren’t trying so hard, when we can just openly share and discuss topics of interest.

We will work together to discover different perspectives. We will focus on the forest AND the trees, because they both matter. Sometimes, I will challenge you and push you, because I know you can handle it.

We will work within the confines of a safe space and judgment-free space for you to share your internal world. You will be accepted for who you are and your strengths will always be acknowledged. If you can’t tell me what these are, we will identify them together.
