I am a Registered Psychotherapist, and Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, working with individuals, couples, and families including children. I offer a relational approach which creates an emotionally safe non-judgemental place for my clients to share the content of their stories, circumstances, and life experiences. I have worked with a wide range of clients within the realms of cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and relational issues, however at the root of nearly all presenting problems is the emotional impact of a relationship. My specialty in relationships has therefore enabled me to work confidently, and effectively with my clients regardless of their identified issue.
 
Individual Psychotherapy:
 
I will work with a full spectrum of individuals including men, women, children, and youth from diverse backgrounds and cultural origins who come to see me for a variety of reasons. In therapy, we seek to understand both the nature of current difficulties and the ways in which these difficulties may be repetitive themes of the past. At times, we focus our work on healing past hurt, while at other times, our work together will be forward looking as we search for ways to unleash emotional freedom for new and creative possibilities.
 
Couples Therapy:
 
In Couple or Marriage Therapy, I meet with both partners to understand difficulties in the relationship, including communication, problem solving, warmth, affection, and satisfying intimacy. Together, we work to understand those current and past systemic patterns of interaction "the dance" which interferes with the relationship and we look at ways to positively influence communication and intimacy to create a new happy dance. In the process, partners agree on goals for the relatitonship which could include a more satisfying, respectful, supportive, loving and intimate relationship. Both individuals grow and expand as they move toward achieving their mutual goals.
 
Family Therapy:
 
Marriage therapy becomes Family therapy when additional family members participate in the therapy sessions. Frequently the identified problematic issues of one individual are intertwined with the well-being of other members of the family. Including all members of the family in therapy can create healing for everyone especially as it pertains to family conflict. 
 
While specializing in relationships, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Attachment Theory, and Relationally Integrative therapy. The latter draws from Cognitive Behavioral, Psycho Dynamic, Dialtectical, Solution Focused, Mindfulness, Attachment and Emotionally Focused therapeutic orientations. I love what I do and I feel honored to have been able to help hundreds of clients to experience personal healing and growth.
