About

Self Awareness*Mindfulness

Philosophy and Approach: My approach is strength based and solution focused. I use emotionally focused therapy to help individuals and couples obtain their goals and have a successful therapeutic experience. Formal Training and Education: I hold a Master's Degree from the Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies and a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from St Mary’s University in Minneapolis. LMFT: I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Level II trained Gottman Therapist. Using the Gottman Method techniques I help couples move away from what Gottman refers to as the four Horseman of the Apocalypse (Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness and Stonewalling). Gottman's research describes these four communication styles as the greatest predictors of divorce. The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy; and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship. While trust is essential in relationships, it's important to recognize that partners still have control over their life dreams, choices, and communication. A trusting relationship empowers both parties to express their needs.
