I offer individual and couples’ counseling. There are different kinds of therapists for different areas of expertise. Some are trained in addictions, some in habitual thoughts and behaviors (CBT). My specialization is in relational dynamics. I have a master’s degree is in Marriage/Couples’ and Family therapy and I have extensive training in Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT-C). EFT therapy is one of the most evidence-based approaches for both individuals and couples. It’s effective in resolving issues within a person, and within a relationship.
I work by noticing how people relate with one another and within themselves — what meaning you might take from your interactions in the world and with your partner, and then how you respond. We all have these relational patterns, but most often they are unconscious and we live mostly in a reactive space. I can help you develop awareness about yourself and change the patterns that either keep you stuck or are unhealthy to you.
Understanding yourself can be deeply rewarding. It can enable stronger emotional connection with others and can allow for new possibilities within yourself to emerge.
Typically clients who work with me report feeling a greater sense of capacity within themselves and a steadier, more trusting relationship with their partner.
In my work I draw from Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), psychodynamic theory, and mindfulness.
I work Monday through Thursday with evening appointments on Tuesday.
I also speak French and Spanish.
