Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Attachment-Focused, and Family Systems Therapy


Child-Parent Relationship Training (CPRT) - Child-Parent Relationship Training is offered in addition to Attachment-based, Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFT). Parents learn specific positive behavioral parenting skills in addition to ways to improve the bonds with their children and teens. Parents learn how their own family of origin wounds may be interfering with the quality of emotional connection they have with their children (not to mention their spouse or partner). Parents learn to set aside special play times that help their child to feel seen, heard, and valued. Sessions with children provide a safe place where feelings are validated and where they can receive support in expressing feelings in appropriated ways, learn to mindful of their behavior and the consequences for it, and more importantly discover their personal power in making their own better choices toward positive outcomes. 

Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) - Children are engaged in special reflected play sessions where the child is allowed to express his/her emotions through non-directed play. The therapist follows the child's play, reflecting, validating, and attuning to the child's play experience. Providing unconditional positive regard and acceptance along with positive behavioral guidance when needed, the therapists's own accepting and well-regulated manner helps the child's nervous system to calm and to develop a sense of safety and security which leads to an increased ability in the child toward regulating emotions. CCPT also helps the child develop a greater sense of self as acceptable and valued and greater self-empowerment.

Individual & couples therapy

Life can get overwhelming at times. Often, stressful events, deep feelings of woundedness, feeling cut off from joy, feeling unworthy, or simply not feeling good about ourselves or our relationships gets to the point where we know it's time to face these difficulties. As challenging as this sounds, these difficulties can actually be the catalyst for incredible positive change. I'm here to help you with anxiety, sadness, grief, loss, and relationship issues as you begin to experience your full range of emotions and gain insight and awareness. I view the therapeutic process very much as a collaborative one. I offer support as my clients face life's challenges in ways that promote healing and wholeness. I assist my clients through their journey of self discovery as they learn to value their own vulnerability and begin to connect with what they truly want and need. I help my clients connect with their true hearts.

Integrating Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) with mindfulness, Somatic Psychotherapy, and the shame resilience work of Dr. Bren√© Brown, I support both my individual clients and my couples clients (married or unmarried) who are experiencing distress in their lives and in their relationship and wish to develop more real and meaningful connections with one another. Mindfulness helps people see their own 'automatic' unconscious responding. It helps my client's notice and acknowledge their own woundedness. In a partnership, each learns to truly and deeply attune to the other and discover the deeper truths in their partner's 'automatic' and unconscious responses. With honesty, vulnerability and trust, both partners can generate compassion and empathy for the other thus strengthening their

emotional connection and bringing their relationship to a whole new level of intimacy.
