We're Ready To Connect
Warm, Authentic, Experienced, and Intentional. We believe that healing comes through connection with safe, secure relationships. These relationships may be with God, with self, and with the important people in our lives.
Our focus areas are Relational Healing, through Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Trauma Recovery, through Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
Often healing comes through relationships and by building positive interactions and safe emotional connections with those most important to us. We work with couples, families, and individuals looking to create or restore connection, healing, and hope.
We also recognize the importance of spiritual healing for many and encourage time for prayer, meditation, and/or being in nature.
It would be an honor to walk alongside you. Together, we can discover and work towards your personal healing goals.
We work from a systemic attachment-based framework and have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is an empirically validated and successful model to work with couples and families. We are also a trauma informed practice, trained in EMDR. EMDR is proven to be effective in guiding the mind and body’s healing from traumatic experiences.
Our clinical experience has been serving couples, families, and individuals with varied emotional, mental, and behavioral issues: anxiety, depression, complex PTSD, relational distress, life transitions, grief, and loss.
You are always enough REGARDLESS. Just show up as you are; it is okay and welcomed. This is a place of gentleness, empathy, compassion, and authenticity. We are here to both figuratively and literally walk alongside you in your therapy journey either as an individual, couple, or family.
Here it is not about what is wrong with you; it is about what has happened to you OR about the negative cycle that you have been stuck in. We make sense of it together. Mutually, we make sense of the brokenness, the pain, the relational distress. All behavior has context and fractures in relationships can be healed.
Compassionate, Authentic, Skilled, Systemic. My life work is committed to walking alongside you empathetically during your healing journey. My own loss, tragedy, and pain brought me to this work. I know only to be myself as we walk along. The hope is for you to show up only as you are also.
In addition to my life experiences, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have advanced training in EFT (for Relational Healing) and am trained in EMDR therapy (for Trauma Recovery). I have a Crisis Intervention certification From Cornell University and am a Dynamic Marriage Facilitator with my husband. I am an alum from Hampton University, Duke University, and Capella University. I believe in lifelong learning and continued growth.
Curious about those life experiences I mentioned? I am forever a child welfare advocate; daughter of the military and of alcoholism. I am the mother of a stillborn child and of two miscarriages. I am the daughter of deceased parents. I often struggle with feeling invisible and of not being enough. I am also a mother of three beautiful and talented children, a wife of 20 years, and a woman of faith.
