Our lives are the context for tremendous brokenness and tremendous beauty. I would love to walk alongside you as you tend to the brokenness and discover the beauty. I specialize in supporting individuals and couples towards healing and hope using research based therapy approaches. I provide a safe place to process life changes or relationship challenges. I work from a systems perspective, meaning issues do not exist in isolation but in the context of families, communities, and cultures. I draw from a combination of theories and techniques, rooted in attachment theory and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT).
I have completed the Gottman Couples Therapy Level 1 training, as well as the Prepare Enrich marriage certification, and find these tools, along with EFT, to be useful in helping couples know each other more fully, experience healing and forgiveness, better understand their strengths, communicate more effectively, and develop deeper intimacy.
