Being curious about people’s experiences grew a passion in me to work with relationships. I have found that Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an exceptional tool for my work, and I am consistently amazed and gratified by the wealth of support that it can offer. EFT also influences my work with individuals, as I believe that much of the distress we feel as individuals stem from the emotional isolation, sadness, and worry that comes from the distress we have in our relationships. I have observed this to be true in my own life, and it has shown itself to be true for the clients I work with.
My work in addictions is also heavily influenced by my passion for relationships. I take a non-blaming stance with the people I work with, and I help them find and heal their underlying stressors. Those stressors are often rooted in relationships, either past or present, so my relationship friendly approach to therapy meshes very well with my training and experience in the field of addictions.
I have felt profoundly privileged that people have invited me into their life to walk alongside them and to support working towards change. And I feel very lucky to be practicing here at the Colorado Center for Couples and Families (CCCF), because the people I work with and the values held by this organization fit so well with my own.
Regardless of what identities you hold, what relationships you are in, or what issues you are struggling with, I will approach you from a curious and non-judgmental stance. I want to get to know you and I hope you will enjoy the process as much as I do.
