Marriage and Family Therapist
and my therapy (Select Underlined words for resources)
I am a wife and mother of three girls and in four years I will have three teenagers...maybe you can imagine what that will be like. I have always had an interest in self-help everything, books, hard conversations, and yes therapy.
I have a Masters in Psychology and recently became licensed in Marriage and Family Therapy. I appreciate seeing couples and individual adults. I offer secular and Christian therapy. I incorporate psychodynamic concepts to increase insight. I draw from experiential theories including emotionally focused therapy and focus on attachment, self worth, and identity. I also pull from psychosomatic concepts which target sensations in the body, which is useful in understanding thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I use Brainspotting, which is a body sourced treatment to help with trauma. I spend time with couples identifying their relationship cycle...in search for their motivating one and I also offer support for emotional regulation, depression, grief, trauma, and anxiety.
I consider therapy one of the last frontiers where matters of the heart are shared and I consider it a privilege to do this work.
