I have a highly personalized approach to treatment – everyone has different needs and goals. We will discuss how best to meet your needs.
I work with adolescents and adults who are coming to therapy for different reasons including treatment for depression, anxiety, dissatisfaction with life, resolving past trauma, or feelings of emptiness. You may want your life to be filled with more joy, compassion and peace.
I will support and challenge you, help you find ways to overcome obstacles, and find deeper freedom to live authentically in the world. This may involve learning new skills, trying out new behaviors, working through old issues, grieving, or letting go of things that no longer serve your health or well-being.
Couples counseling is designed to help you work through relationship or communication problems and create emotional closeness. I help couples understand the emotional needs of each partner, meet each other’s needs and learn tools to negotiate differences, problem solve, and work through conflicts in a healthier way. Couples gain and maintain a deeper level of intimacy and closeness.
I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), a relatively short term (8-20 sessions), structured approach to couples therapy. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples participating in EFT move from distress to recovery, and approximately 90% show significant improvements in their relationship.
