Have you thought of trying counseling before, but felt unsure of the process or felt like you're not an "emotional" person? As a therapist trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) I help to unlock the mystery of what our emotions are trying to tell us, in a logical way. I thrive on working with couples who feel "stuck" in their relationship or are facing infertility, infidelity, betrayal or sexual trauma, life transitions, retirement, fostering, adopting, and the raising of children with disabilities. I believe that success in therapy comes from the creation of a therapeutic alliance between client and therapist.
As a therapist trained in (EMDR) Eye Movement Desensitization And Reprocessing, I have worked with individuals who have been affected by trauma, and can help you to change negative beliefs about yourself and others, into more healthy and positive beliefs that heal from the effects associated with traumatic experiences.
As a therapist of Ukrainian heritage raised in Germany, who has lived in various states throughout the continental United States as well as Hawaii, I am sensitive to the unique needs of immigrants, refugees, and cultural and ethnic minorities, striving to incorporate traditions, religions, and beliefs in therapy as strengths.
