I think as human beings we want to feel seen, heard, appreciated, respected, loved, and valued. I believe most of us want to make a difference in the lives of those around us, our loved ones, friends and community. Making a difference and enjoying healthy and gratifying relationships and contributing to one’s community can take many forms but they all involve relationships. If you find yourself feeling deeply unhappy, confused and dissatisfied in any of your relationships, I’d like to learn more about you and what you are seeking in your life and in your relationships.I am a clinical social worker with more than 20 years experience. I work with adults, couples and families. Using a contemporary psychodynamically-oriented approach, I work with those struggling with relationship and family issues, parenting difficulties, divorce, trauma, unresolved grief, loss, anxiety and depression, among other issues.In 2017 I will become a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist for Couples. This approach comes from a rich theoretical foundation of attachment, humanism, and relational theories and has a strong research base supporting its use. I’m excited to add it to my approach with couples.
