There is a spark of hope inside you and I’m here to encourage you to embrace that spark, whether for your relationship or yourself. As Dr. Sue Johnson, the creator of the research-based Emotionally Focused Therapy modality, stated, “injured relationships can heal.” And I can help you fan those flames, guiding you to healing through Emotionally Focused Therapy.

Throughout my life, I have stayed curious about the relationships that create the fabric of our world: How do couples and families stay bonded? What is needed to feel loved and to belong? And how to feel worthy of such relationships to accept that love? Sometimes hurt of all kinds gets in the way of connecting to those most important relationships and blocks our expression of what we need. Perhaps there are times we don’t know what we need, which makes it difficult to tell our loved ones how to help us.

Sound familiar? That’s where I come in. My background is in serving couples and families, military, multicultural, and minority communities with complex trauma to learn how to recognize their emotions and learn how to express those emotions effectively and confidently to repair the ruptures in relationships.

The lenses by which I conceptualize my clients are through Family Systems and Emotionally Focused Therapy with a heavy hand of psycho-education to help clients succeed in their relationships and do away with my job!

Through collaboration, I partner with you to develop your goals for counseling to build a new language and understanding, and eventual peace to your relationships, including your relationship with yourself.

I offer consistency and empathy to those I have the honor to serve. Together, we will find a way to improve your relationships. Let’s go!
