Relationships and partnerships are often where we feel most vulnerable and conscious of our deepest needs and fears. They can also be where we feel the most known and accepted. Every relationship encounters new challenges, cycles through harmful patterns, and requires mutual effort between partners to continually grow. You don’t have to wait until a crisis arises — therapy can help you and your partner at any point in your relationship.
I am trained in Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and I strive to create a safe, accepting space for couples to identify their harmful cycles and create new, authentic connection. Couples counseling is an opportunity to address specific issues of intimacy and infidelity, develop new ways of communicating, and build a more authentic and loving relationship.
We have all cultivated our own unique set of survival skills, ways to protect ourselves from the outside world. Sometimes those skills become problematic or isolating, keeping us from realizing who we are or want to be. In such cases, individual counseling can provide a supportive, nonjudgmental space for you to address concerns around relationships, life transitions, identity and intersectionality, anxiety, depression, as well as past trauma. I work in collaboration with clients to identify their goals, offer feedback and insight, and join in their efforts to create a new set of skills, and ultimately a more satisfying and joyful life.
Family therapy addresses difficult communication patterns, unresolved trauma, intergenerational issues, and transitions including separation and divorce, new partnerships, parenthood, and grief and loss. A safe therapeutic space can offer new perspectives for ongoing familial challenges as well as improve communication and mutual closeness. Additionally, I have experience in child-parent psychotherapy, a trauma-focused approach for young children and their parents.
