I am passionate about emotions. All of us are full of them. The emotions we carry with us as individuals, as well as, what we bring into relationships can be powerful and challenging. I also understand that each of us carries with us an emotional heritage that is unique and has served as a means to support, protect, and empower each of us.
I work with couples to strengthen their relationship and navigate the emotions they both bring into the partnership. I am a resource and an ally. By this, I mean I provide support untangling a recent complicated situation that may have occurred or digging in and sorting out longstanding differences that have built up.
I treat each person as a unique individual deserving of respect, understanding, and fairness. As a couple you are both individuals, as well as, partners. I believe in a collaborative holistic approach. We will universally review the full context of what is happening in your life, as well as, the relationship and direct family. As relevant or needed, I also incorporate secondary family members, friends, and other wellness providers.
To do this, I incorporate strength and values-based therapeutic models. I utilize Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, along with other interventions as appropriate. These models are made-up of evidence-based treatments which have been found to be highly effective working with adults and couples.
