Life can be unpredictable and throw us curve balls when we least expect them... or maybe you are experiencing the opposite and feeling "stuck". Counseling can provide emotional support, psychoeducation, skill building and create new perspectives, in an atmosphere of care and empathy, to approach these challenges in meaningful ways. I am equipped to help you with:
Relationship & Marriage Concerns
Anxiety, Fear and Stress
Creating Healthy Boundaries
Major Life Changes
Depression and Sadness
Anger, Shame and Guilt
Stage of Life Transitions
(WHEN CLINICALLY INDICATED)
There are many ways to approach the issues you bring into counseling. Every therapist has their
own unique style, skill set and way of working with their clients. Some of the methods,
techniques and frameworks I use in my work include:
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
A technique that works with your brain to decrease distress rooted in trauma.
APSATS Work (Association for Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists)
An approach to working with partners who are struggling with sexual betrayal. It addresses the
trauma response to the threat that impacts the intimate relationship in a client's life.
Gottman Couples Therapy Method
Drs. John and Julie Gottman bring over 40 years of couple research to identify what makes a relationship work. This approach teaches couples practical skills to improve the quality of their relationship.
Emotion Coaching: The Heart of Parenting
An empathy-based curriculum developed by The Gottman Institute is presented in a DVD +
workbook format. It can be facilitated in a group or one-on-with with parents.
A 5-session structured model to support couples who are experiencing mixed feelings about the future of their relationship, in the hopes of gaining clarity and assist in decision-making.
Connections: A Psychoeducational Shame-Resilience Curriculum
A DVD-based process workshop developed by shame researcher, speaker and best selling author, Brené Brown, Ph.D. Based on her book, I Thought it Was Just Me (but it isn't): Telling the Truth About Perfectionism, Inadequacy and Power, this 12-session workshop guides clients through the process of making authentic connections.
