Are you starving for deeper connection and intimacy and lost and confused about why your relationships don't seem to work out?
Are you struggling in your relationship with arguments, disconnection, or feeling like you've drifted apart?
Are you dying to feel more passion and vitality in your life but feel beaten down and exhausted by the daily grind?
When you are struggling with relationship and life transitions, grief from loss, stress of unresolved conflicts, and the inevitable uncertainty that life presents, therapy can be a safe place to explore and find your deepest truth.
From this place you begin to uncover your authentic self and find the confidence to move forward, creating the life you truly desire.
My approach to therapy can be summed up in three statements:
What everyone needs is a good listening to.
When people ask for help, offer an array of practical and effective tools.
Beyond the wounds of our egos, there exists a deep well of wisdom and love within each of us.
What we all really need is to be deeply heard and understood.
From that place we are able to get in touch with parts of ourselves that have been long neglected and in need of healing. With gentle guidance and deep listening we work together to touch into those wounded places and find the love that is beneath. I follow my clients closely, allowing a caring space for what needs to be experienced as well as offering tools to support the process of transformation and healing. My in depth training in child development and family systems gives me a unique perspective as a therapist. I am able to help you hone in on developmental steps missed in childhood and reclaim the parts of you that were lost, hurt, or forgotten. These lost moments of connection and safety come up most strongly in our most intimate relationships. We will explore where you are dissatisfied or hurt in your current relationships and how that may relate to experiences in childhood that need to be healed so you can look life and your loved ones directly in the eyes, show them your heart undefended, and ask for what it is you most long for.
Seamlessly blending wisdom from Eastern philosophies and wisdom schools with evidence-based practical strategies from Western Psychology, I offer guidance to uncover and release obstacles in your path, allowing you to move forward, confidently creating the life you have been longing for.
Tools I use in therapy include:
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

"You do not have to be good,
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things."
