Couples & Family Sessions

Are We a Good Match?

If you want to work with your partner or family to improve your relationships and are considering if my approach could work for you, consider if any of the following resonate:

- I keep falling back into the same unhealthy patterns in all my life and my relationships. I want to change, but I don't know how.

- My relationships tend to be complicated. How can I learn to be a better partner, family member, or parent?

- I think I have anxious or avoidant attachment, and I'd be happier if I could learn to be more securely attached. How do I do that?

- When conflicts arise at home, at work, or with friends , I tend to get defensive, lash out, or say things I regret later. I want to change, but I don't know why I get so angry or how to control it.

- I have long dealt with anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, suicide ideation, or low self-esteem. I want to learn new tools and strategies to deal with these issues better and be happier.

- Even though I know why I react the way I do, nothing I've tried helps me change it. I'm not even sure therapy can help, because I've tried so many things already, and I'm still stuck in my old ways.

- I'm really unhappy in my life right now. I want to make some changes in my career, relationships, or lifestyle, and I could use someone to be an unbiased help in figuring things out.

- I feel so lost in my relationship and unsure of what to do. It seems like ending things is the only option, but I don't really want to leave. Should I stay or go?

Maybe some of these sound just like you and your partner. All of these are problems my clients have shared at the beginning of our therapy sessions. Through hard work inside and outside our sessions, they have been able to work through these issues, build stronger relationships, and feel happier. If you are ready to commit to therapy and dig deeper, take accountability, and try out new ways to solve old problems, I am confident that you'll be able to, too.


The people I've supported through therapy reported that they've been able to achieve the following thanks to the skills and tools they've learned in our EFT sessions:

My Approach: EFT for Better Relationships

If you identified with any of the above scenarios, my approach, which is centered on relationships, could be right for you. Research consistently highlights that relationships are the most important factor for our happiness, so it's worth it to invest in them. However, many of us did not grow up with role models who taught us how to foster close, trusting, honest, securely-attached relationships. We can find ourselves trapped in the same argument with no resolution, reacting impulsively in moments of anger, or feeling insecure, disconnected, and unloved in our relationships. The good news is that relationship building is a skill we can all learn through therapy.

What distinguishes my approach is that it's rooted in emotion-focused therapy (EFT), often considered the "gold standard" of relationship-focused therapy. EFT enables us to delve deeper into why we react the ways we do in difficult moments, gain better control over our responses, and use conflict as an opportunity to grow closer, not apart. Through teaching the people I work with how to use EFT skills and techniques, I've helped individuals, couples, and families strengthen their bond and bring back joy into their relationships.

In addition to EFT, I bring other evidence-based tools into sessions rooted in:
