What is an MFT, Marriage and Family Therapist?
Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are licensed mental health professionals who work with individuals; couples whether or not married; families of all types; and groups to cure or relieve mental, emotional, and relational concerns of all kinds. MFTs work in a variety of settings throughout the country and provide mental health services, as well as provide services in independent private practice.
Who do you work with?
I work with adults, couples, and families.
What approach do you use?
Every client’s needs are different. I work collaboratively with you to understand what would be most helpful. Perhaps you need day to day tools or a safe non-judgemental space to unpack and explore what’s not working in your life in service of finding more balance, ease, and happiness. I am a depth oriented, dynamic and authentic therapist who will give feedback but who will also compassionately listen. I am trained in a body-centered (Somatic) psychotherapy (Hakomi), Psychodynamics, and AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) which focuses on healing the wounded parts of ourselves through healthy attachment. I am influenced by many years of studying Buddhist meditation, 5 Rhythms Dance, yoga, Reiki, and breathwork.
What to expect?
For new clients, I offer a free 10-15 minute phone consultation. This allows me to get a sense of what you are needing support with and to answer any questions you might have. If it feels like a good fit, we can schedule an initial office appointment. It might take a few sessions to find out if we might be a good fit. Finding someone you feel comfortable with is very important.
