Healing is possible. I work together with people to support them in creating fulfilling and meaningful lives. As a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist, I specialize in supporting people in their relationships; that encompasses couples, parents and their children, etc. I believe that relationships are part of the foundation of our being. Secure and healthy relationships allow us to function at our highest potential in the world. I love supporting people to enhance their lives and relationships. Emotionally Focused Therapy is the most effective couples therapy modality with evidence-based research backing it. I have the most advanced training in EFT of therapists that are currently practicing in our County.
I work with individuals as well, including children, teens and adults. Life's stressors and challenges may create difficulties that compel you to seek out a non-judgmental, caring professional to aid you in gaining new coping skills and sorting out what makes sense for you in your life. I will maintain a non-hierarchical therapeutic relationship with you to ensure that we are co-creating together in your healing processes.
I use various therapeutic modalities to meet each individual’s unique needs and will support you in strengthening your connection to your own inner wisdom. Emotional pain that causes anxiety, depression, physical symptoms, acting out, etc. can be reduced and replaced with inner peace, serenity and freedom. Working through your hurts and pains with someone who can think well about you can allow you to see and think more clearly and creatively about the challenges in front of you.
People who are struggling in life deserve allies to support them. As a therapist, I see myself as an ally to those I work with. Every individual has things to contribute to the world, and together we can work to find your gifts and strengths. My practice is based in cultural humility and sensitivity. My intention is to support people so they are able to experience greater possibilities for their lives and relationships. In the big picture, I work toward the liberation of all people and species, and to create a sustainable environment for all.
