Areas of Expertise

As my passion is relationships, much of my training and experience is in working with couples.  I have completed training with the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT), and have completed 3 out of 4 steps needed to become a Certified EFT Therapist, and am pursuing the certification. In addition, I am experienced and enjoy working with couples and individuals of a variety of backgrounds and experiences. I have experience working with couples with a variety of difficulties including: previous affairs or large secrets, loud- frequent fighting, small children, and trauma backgrounds. This includes LGBTQ individuals and couples, as well as polyamorous individuals and couples.

Some additional areas of expertise include: sex, anxiety, depression, trauma, suicide, personal growth, and self-esteem. I have done additional training with the Gotten Institute, and the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. 

I do not currently work with people under the age of 18.
