My area of specialization is the treatment of couples.
Together with our partners, we create and repeat patterns which keep us from getting the love we want and need. Plainly put, we push each other away and fail to meet our primary longing for connection. Informed by the Emotionally Focused model, my work is to help couples recognize not only their negative patterns but also the deepest needs that drive them. The goal is to create a safe space where those needs can be shared and met to achieve true connection and intimacy.
I have incorporated techniques and tools from the Gottman method which have proven very helpful for couples to improve their communication, manage conflict, and enhance their comfort level with one another.
