I understand relationships can be hard. But I also know how they can grow and feel hopeful again.
How do couples sustain happiness to find fulfilling connection over the years, seasons and challenges life can bring?
Everyone knows relationships take work. But what does that really mean? One of the most empowered things you can do is to focus on your relationship, with the support of a couples therapist.
Words That Describe My Counseling Style
How I Can Help
I use Emotionally Focused Therapy when working with couples because it gives us a guide toward unpacking the negative cycle that is causing your distress and disconnection. Once we’ve identified the negative cycle and how it’s impacting your connection, we can work to create a more secure emotional bond between you and your partner.
I can help you take stock of how you are doing as a couple, then make a plan to help you find the connection, closeness, intimacy, and rock-solid feeling that you are both loved for who you are to your core. We’ll take a look at things like:
- How do both of us feel in our relationship?
- Do we deeply understand each other’s thoughts, feelings, and concerns?
- Do we take time to check-in and nurture our relationship?
- Are we confident in how to bring up more sensitive topics to maximize success?
- When we reach out to each other, A.R.E. we there for each other? Are we
Where there are gaps or new territory for you, this is the work your relationship needs. We’ll come up with a tailored assessment and plan just for your relationship. We want to build a foundation of security, closeness, and nurturing that will withstand the test of time.
I have been married over 30 years and have three grown children. I understand the challenges couples must navigate and how couples can get stuck in negative cycles. My approach includes helping couples recognize and change the patterns that keep them stuck and help them reach out to each other in ways that bring them closer.
Don’t wait another day wishing for the relationship you want, and letting the hurts pile up. Let’s work together to help you achieve that happier connection, starting now.

I love working with individuals too
I am passionately committed to helping individuals with:
- Interpersonal relationship problems
- Trauma recovery
- Healing through divorce
- Grief and loss
- Disability related issues
I am a trauma-informed therapist
What does that mean for you, and why do you want a therapist who is trauma-informed?
First, whether you experienced major trauma such as childhood abuse, neglect, or a serious and tragic life event (Big “T” Trauma); or you’ve just been through some difficult dynamics or experiences (Small “t” trauma), it helps to have a therapist who understands the impacts this can have on a person.
You can expect that:
- It will be my top priority to help you feel safe with me
- I will work hard to step into and really understand your world – your experiences, thoughts, feelings, perceptions and reactions.
- As we work together, I will hold the knowledge that we all do the best we can to cope and survive the situations we have experienced.
It is my honor to help you feel deeply understood, and then to help you feel empowered to create the life, relationships and growth you desire. I would love to get to know you and support your growth.

What is your counseling style?
My therapeutic approach includes developing a caring trusting and honest relationship with you taking a look at any thought patterns, which could be leading to negative cycles causing emotional or relational distress.
As an Emotionally Focused Therapist, I know that unprocessed feelings always play a role in behavior. With EFT as our framework, we can explore how unprocessed emotions are contributing to the negative cycles of interaction you’re experiencing in your relationships.
As a strengths-based therapist, I believe every person holds personal resources and attributes which help them navigate life. I help clients uncover their strengths and gifts to solve challenges.
I have been trained and continue on-going training in Emotionally Focused Therapy which I believe is one of the most effective therapeutic approaches when addressing relational issues.
For couples who wonder if they can improve their relationships, there is hope. I have personally experienced this and want you to know that the negative cycles can change and you can find a renewed love and connection with your loved one.
I firmly believe in viewing the whole person in therapy. A holistic approach addresses overall health, fitness, diet, sleep, friendships, work, recreation and other relationships. I will work with you to understand areas of concern and develop solutions. My desire is to help my clients live their best life!
