Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My passion is to help you discover what it means to have a healthy emotional life. Developing a healthy emotional life is about understanding your emotions, experiencing them appropriately, and improving relationship connection. A positive relationship with your emotions gives you the freedom to lead a vibrant and fulfilling life. Even the most competent people often feel overwhelmed by their emotions or try to cope by shutting them down. If you are stressed, anxious, depressed, grieving, lacking self-esteem, or wishing for something better, I would like to help. I believe that relationships are central to who we are as human beings, and we have an innate desire to deeply connect with one another. For this reason, I specialize in working with relationships that are in distress and assisting couples in transitioning to cohesive love and joy. Therapy is a journey, utilizing both of our skills to work through your challenges together. In couples and individual work, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It is my goal to guide you into happiness in your relationships and within yourself. A more fulfilled life is possible.
