Hello and welcome. I have spent the past 15 years working with people in relationships. I have found that relationships are the most powerful connection we encounter in our lives. Relationships can bring us great joy and happiness, as well as great pain and sorrow. It is in relationship where we get hurt, so it only makes sense that it is in relationship that we heal. I am committed to helping people heal.
I have had the opportunity to study and train in Emotionally Focused Therapy. I am one of a small group of EFT Trainers worldwide. Dr. Sue Johnson, director and founder of International Center for Excellence in EFT (www.iceeft.com), has put her heart and soul into creating, researching, and spreading EFT worldwide.
EFT is an empirically validated approach to therapy and is based in attachment theory. It is used with couples and families and is beginning to be used in some major businesses. It is about creating connections and the more connected people are in life the more successful they are.
I treat a variety of presenting problems using this approach:
• depression and anxiety
• stress management
• relationship conflict (couple and family)
• grief and loss
I know it takes a lot of courage for clients to come into my office and explore difficult issues. I provide a safe, comfortable environment for you to explore issues that block connection while helping heal and learn to reconnect.

My favorite part about being an EFT therapist & Trainer is how much of a difference I make and how quickly. Some of my most successful clients were only in need of some education and some understanding but in our sessions watching the pieces fall into place to create lasting happiness really makes me love doing what I do.
