You are on this page to learn two things.
First, will this person “get me?”
Second, is she qualified to help me or my relationship?
Every therapist is going to tell you that you deserve a warm and compassionate therapist who will be caring, nonjudgmental, and who will make you feel safe and confident going through the therapy process.
While I wholeheartedly believe this, I want you to know that therapy with me will be real. We’ll talk. We will cry. We will yell. We’ll laugh. We will dig, explore and organize.
I understand that when you feel as though you are drowning, or when your relationship is on the rocks, everything becomes overwhelming and confusing. Because therapy is a unique experience, I want to assure you that you will get no judgment from me ever! I have experienced a lot in my personal and professional life. It takes a lot to shock or surprise me. I can stay cool no matter what issues are being discussed.
As for the nitty gritty, I earned an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from St Mary’s University in Minnesota, meaning that I have a tremendous amount of experience work with relationships.
I have extensive experience and training working with couples and individuals in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. This is a therapeutic perspective that allows clients the ability to identify the negative cycles that they are caught in and soothe the root of the problem. This exploration helps couples find more connection and overall fulfillment in their relationship.
