• Depending on your needs and specific problem area, we will find a therapeutic method that works best for you.   I typically use a blend of therapy modalities.  Below are some of my specialties:

Emotionally Focused Therapy

  • People are made healthier by emotional contact and need to feel safe in their connections to others
  • Explores patterns of distress in intimate relationships that is often deeply rooted in fears of abandonment
  • Initiate new cycles of interaction
  • Discuss feelings in an environment of compassion
  • Use new communication styles to talk about old problems and develop new solutions

Motivational Interviewing

  • Designed to help you arrive at your own solutions
  • Clarifies priorities
  • Strengthens motivation toward a specific goal by exploring your own reasons for change
  • Non-judgmental, collaborative, and compassionate process

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

  • Drop the struggle with  painful thoughts/feelings and make room for them
  • Decrease avoidance
  • Commit to taking steps towards your values while simultaneously accepting life's difficult circumstances 
  • Reduce efforts at trying to control thoughts, feelings, and other people
  • Emphasizes mindfulness
