I focus my practice on the empirically-validated methods of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), both short-term, highly effective treatment approaches that are adaptable to a variety of issues. I have consistently experienced success with these techniques in helping clients to recognize and break free from negative thought and interaction patterns, create secure attachment bonds, increase awareness, improve communication of needs, and to overall live a life of greater meaning and success.
Whether you are seeking therapy for yourself or your child, I am here to help. I have extensive experience working with men and women on issues such as divorce, parenting, co-parenting, depression, anxiety, stress, lifecycle transitions, anger management, and low self-esteem.
I also specialize in working with children and adolescents and providing them with a safe outlet to feel supported, acknowledged, and understood. I am passionate about being a strong adult mentor at such an overwhelming time of life. There are endless benefits for children and teens in therapy, some of which include developing greater emotional awareness, learning healthy, life-long coping methods, confiding in a safe, trusted, non-judgmental adult to help in making responsible decisions, learning to resist the pressure of peers, and exploring an evolving sense of identity.
