I understand how risky and uncomfortable vulnerability can be. Thats why I am inspired every time my clients walk through those doors and open their lives up to me. They resolve that finding freedom and growth is worth the plunge. And through my experiences as a therapist and a client, I have come to believe in the power of real talk and deep connection to bring about that freedom and growth.
I have received extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a highly effective and empirically validated couples therapy model, and utilize this approach in my work with couples. My work with EFT led me to join the EFT Resource Center, a home for EFT therapy services, workshops for couples, public education, and professional training.
I draw from current research in attachment, affective neuroscience, and contemporary relational theories to inform treatment with adults, adolescents, and families. I also draw from my own ongoing process of transformation thanks to my husband, mentors, colleagues, clients, family and friends from a myriad of cultural contexts.
