Take A Positive Step Today!

If you are looking at this website you have some pain and distress in your life that you would like to address. For 31 years I have supported individuals, couples and families as they seek to heal broken, painful or disconnected relationships.

When working with individuals I develope a strategic treatment plan to create the greatest healing benefit possible.  This plan will give us a clear beginning, middle and end to the therapy.

In my work with couples I promote increased emotional safety and bonding in the relationship through EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy).  When I first began doing couples therapy, I worked very hard with my couples on improving their communication skills.  Unfortunately, good communication skills did not seem to make much of a difference for my couples.  On some level, I knew that what I really wanted for my couples is for them to feel emotionally safe with one another.  I wanted them to have the ability to turn to each other for contact, care and comfort.  I knew that if they could each be vulnerable as well as attuned and comforting to one another, their bond with each other would be fortified.  When couples are truly bonded, they can go through anything together and feel supported.  They begin to carry burdens they experience together, instead of in isolation or turning to others for that support.  Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy is like a road map to this process of bonding and connection.  

If you choose to work with me I believe that together we can create the life you want and deserve!
