We are all faced with times in our lives when we need a helping hand to get back on track. I work collaboratively with my clients to empower them with the skills and strategies they need to feel forward progress.
I work with couples and individuals 13 years and older. I am specially trained to treat trauma, grief and loss and would love to work with you on your journey. My special interests include working with military and veteran families and treating PTSD in the family system. I utilize EMDR and Internal Family Systems (IFS) for treating trauma. I believe that we can all heal and learn when given the tools, compassion and support that we need.
I am passionate about finding healing and understanding within the relationship through the Gottman Method and using IFS Therapy. I work with couples and individuals who are in difficult relationships and are looking to get out of the rut and back into connection. I help couples to build skills and revive relationships that are suffering. We will collaborate and work as a team to create safety to be heard and space to be seen and understood in a depth that fosters connection and compassion. I have also been trained in Discernment Counseling for couples who are considering divorce and don’t know where to turn.
I invite you to bring your strengths, resiliencies and grit (and sense of humor) into our work. Change can be hard. We will create a plan that works for you and we will pull together to reach your goals. I would be honored to support you.
