About My Clients

You've been here before - in this place of disconnection and hurt. Except this time, you feel raw inside and out. You are sick of the fighting and are worried that it might never change. You find yourself questioning, "how did I get here?" and feel swallowed up by the despair that follows. You two once had a connection that seemed incomparable, and now you feel alone. As an EFT therapist, I am here to give you hope. Together, we can+WILL rebuild the connection and intimacy that you long for.

My Background and Approach

As an advanced-trained Emotionally Focused Therapist (EFT), I specialize in working with couples and individuals who are feeling disconnected, unheard, stuck, and alone. By utilizing only the most effective research-based approaches, I help my couples build the skills necessary to hold one another's pain, and communicate in a way that forges connection, instead of disconnection. Similarly, I support my individuals in navigating their current emotions and hardships, while also processing and healing old pain in order to free them up for more fulfilling/rewarding lives and relationships. Should you choose to work with me, I will offer you the empathy, support, and expertise needed to heal deep wounds, repair hurting relationships, and transform life's most difficult battles into opportunities for deep, human connection. I will hold your pain in order to lighten your load and make space for renewed connection and hope. **Research demonstrates that EFT has an efficacy rate of 90%**

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

While I am a therapist in my profession, it is important for you to know that I show up in my therapy room as a human, first and foremost. As a person-centered and attachment-based therapist, I firmly believe that some of the deepest healing that can take place in the therapy room comes simply from feeling heard, held, and seen by another human. It is my job to see you amidst your mistakes, your successes, and your pain, while unconditionally accepting, respecting, and embracing the human that you are. In my room, there is no judgement. You are to come only as you are, regardless of your identity, past mistakes, or current ability to "hold it together". I will support you and guide you along the path towards healing by creating a safe space for you to share your pain, and by utilizing a series of clinically proven interventions/techniques to help you reach your therapy goals as quickly as possible. I am an LGBTQ ally + support ethical non-monogamy.
