My perspective is based on empathy, attachment and understanding. I believe that each person in a relationship can be satisfied when his/her partner meets the basic needs of safety and security. I have completed additional training in couples therapy at the Externship for Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Gottmans Level One Couples Therapy Training. I believe that couples that are struggling with connection can have deeper and more nourishing bonds through empathy training and evaluation of underlying emotional needs. I continue to study relationships and plan to complete certification in the EFT model.
I will listen to you; try to make you feel comfortable and safe and work alongside you as you work towards your goals. Making change can be both challenging and rewarding, and some times the road turns in unexpected directions. As you navigate, I will offer a different perspective, tools like GPS, as well as support if the road becomes turbulent.
I also have particular interest in shame and how it relates to perception of attachment needs. I work with individuals who want to build his/her own personal strength, value and sense of self. Working with many populations and ethnicities both enrich me as a therapist and the clients I serve. Everyone is welcome because everyone deserves happiness.
