Personal Statement

My perspective is based on empathy, attachment and understanding. I believe that each person in a relationship can be satisfied when his/her partner meets the basic needs of safety and security. I have completed additional training in couple’s therapy at the Externship for Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Gottman’s Level One Couple’s Therapy Training. I believe that couples that are struggling with connection can have deeper and more nourishing bonds through empathy training and evaluation of underlying emotional needs. I continue to study relationships and plan to complete certification in the EFT model.

I also have particular interest in shame and how it relates to perception of attachment needs. I work with individuals who want to build his/her own personal strength, value and sense of self. Working with many populations and ethnicities both enrich me as a therapist and the clients I serve. Everyone is welcome because everyone deserves happiness.
