A Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and a active member of Seattle EFT, I am an EFT couples therapist fully certified by the International Centre of Excellence in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I am also an EFT Level 2 Individual Therapist. My approach is founded upon Attachment Theory, the idea that how we bond as adults is connected to the quality of our relationship with our original caregivers.
My goal in therapy is to help couples, men and women cultivate a greater awareness, acceptance and regulation of emotion, thought and behavior. I assist clients in becoming fully aware of core emotions and the disconnecting behaviors that result when they are unrecognized and unshared. We work together to help you develop the ability to communicate in ways that will foster increased connection and intimacy with in your relationships. In this process, you can gain a more meaningful understanding of how you interact with your partner or spouse, and other close people in your life. In gentle and powerful ways my clients come to understand how it is that they have become distant from once cherished loved ones—and how to grow a safer, more accepting and secure connection to yourself and to those with whom you are in relationship.
I am open to and affirming of people of all races, sexual and gender identities and ages.
