Services Center for Compassion

Please note that due to the Covid19 Pandemic, I ask that you be fully vaccinated to meet in person. I also offer therapy online for those not vaccinated, and for those who prefer to receive teletherapy.

At Center for Compassion Couples Counseling PLLC, I offer affordable couple counseling, individual adult therapy and couple workshops. Using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, I work with you to overcome seemingly unsolvable conflict, anger and hurt that causes disconnection in your relationships. Together, you and your partner will practice deep listening and connected communication to gain confidence in the love you have for each other and the relationship you desire. Using Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, I pay attention to the essential human need for connection, I emphasize the emotional experience as the driving force of how we organize our thoughts and behavior, and I encourage present moment awareness of emotion, sensations, thoughts, actions and interactions. Together, we will work to ease the effects of difficult transitions, depression, anxiety, grief, shame and trauma.

Couple Counseling

Centering on compassion and authentic communication, I help you and your partner to discover ways you both get stuck in cycles of conflict; make sense of the impact you have on your partner and the impact your partner has on you; uncover how conflict plays into emotions and needs; and create connection with the love you have for each other. Please contact me to learn more or make an appointment.

Individual Therapy

By facilitating awareness of emotions, thoughts and behaviors, and encouraging mindful connection with self and others, I counsel adults to help ease the pain of difficult transitions, depression, anxiety, grief and the effects of trauma. Please contact me to learn more or make an appointment.

Couples Workshops (Couple Workshops are currently unavailable)

Beyond couple therapy, I offer Couple Workshops using Dr. Sue Johnson’s teachings in Hold Me Tight. We will discover the seven conversations for a lifetime of love, and how they can heal and strengthen your relationship. We explore how couples become stuck in unhelpful cycles of disconnection, how to connect with each other and step out of your stuck cycle, and how to nurture the loving relationship you long for.
