Areas of Expertise
Sometimes it is helpful to have a safe place to process the difficulties and adjustments of life. In individual therapy, the focus is YOU. How can you begin to feel like yourself again, gain a deeper understanding of your story, and create the life you were meant to live?
Are you feeling disconnected from your partner? I desire to help couples reconnect and work through the problems that lead to feelings of isolation or loneliness within their relationship. I work from an attachment theory perspective to help repair hurts and help couples learn to love, trust and reconnect to one another again.
If you are an engaged couple, I specialize in helping you learn how to optimize your areas of growth and develop your strengths. I want to provide an opportunity to give you the foundation to establish a marriage that will endure the challenges life brings.
Betrayal Trauma / Infidelity
Have the devasting effects of betrayal affected you? When a partner betrays our trust by stepping outside the relationship, the effects can induce symptoms of PTSD. I am here to help you work through the grief, pain, and devastation and plan your next steps.
Are you at a crossroads in your life? Women often face unique challenges concerning body image, career choices, infertility, and motherhood. Women-related issues may affect a woman’s mental and physical health. I am here to help you walk through these challenges.
Anxiety / Depression
Is anxiety taking over your life? Do you feel overwhelmed by the weight of your negative and never-ending thought life? Working together, I hope to help relieve you by developing resources to help elevate your symptoms and process the emotions and life events associated with your anxiety and depression.
Walk / Talk Therapy
What's walk/talk therapy? Walk and talk therapy takes your therapy sessions outdoors. Using movement and the therapeutic qualities of nature, this alternative approach incorporates the benefits of fresh air and movement into the therapy process. Activity, such as a leisurely walk, can make it easier for some people to discuss their feelings. My office is located by Trinity Park, with the Trinity River as the perfect place to walk and talk about your concerns.
As an attachment-based therapist, I consider how you bond with others and how it affects you and your relationships. These bonding styles create patterns in our lives that lead to healthy or unhealthy ways of relating to ourselves and others, creating joy or pain. I use attachment theory to help you understand yourself through a lens of interpersonal neurobiology and somatic psychology to help relieve symptoms of distress and learn new ways of interacting with yourself and others. Specializing in trauma, I use treatment methods such as Emotionally Focused Therapy, Brainspotting, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), and principles from Somatic Experiencing to heal the body-mind connection to bring relief from emotional distress caused by disturbing experiences.
