Certified EFT Supervisor & Therapist in Individual, Couple, and Family Therapy

 

“I believe that marriage counseling is a place for couples to learn to be fully seen and accepted while they build a sense of security in their relationship.”

My training to become a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor means I have the expertise you need and deserve when improving your relationships. But at the end of the day, you want to know you’re working with someone who “gets” what it means to be in a relationship struggling with anxiety, loneliness, and miscommunication, right?

I get it because I’ve lived it myself. As a military spouse from dual military family, I especially know the challenges of military life and how that can take a toll in a marriage and a family. I know that frustration of trying everything in relationships and somehow things are still not going right. It’s what led me to devote my career to learning about and helping others improve their relationships. So when we work together, you won’t just get a trained therapist. You’ll get someone who truly understands what you’re going through.

You are enough just as you are. Each emotion you feel, everything in your life, everything you do or do not do… where you are and who you are right now is enough. It is perfect.
