With a background in trauma research and passion for working with couples, I have a special interest in how trauma impacts intimate relationships. This unique lens allows me to view patterns of interaction, unwanted behaviors, and unhelpful perceptions as ways of coping with overwhelming life circumstances. My holistic approach helps clients draw on their individual strengths to create balance between mind, body, soul, and community.
I enjoy working with people from a variety of backgrounds and ages. I welcome working with individuals, couples, or families. Through collaboration, we can move forward and find an innate sense of balance. We can cultivate more fulfilling relationships with yourself and your partner.
Some of the techniques I use most include:
Emotion Focused Therapy - Explores emotions underlying thoughts, behaviors, and patterns of interaction
Family Systems - A holistic approach to understanding how the environment impacts individuals and relationships
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy - A mindfulness-based skills approach for managing painful emotions and decreasing relationship conflict
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - Examines thoughts related to traumatic events
