Working with couples

You probably heard the saying, “Falling in love is easy but staying in love is hard.” With falling in love, we are passive participants, who let the feeling, love, happen to us. But with staying in love, we are active participants, who choose the action, to love.

Relationships take hard work to maintain and they require skills that most of us don’t learn from our parents. When we start working together, I will provide a safe place for both of you, where we will jump-start the healing process. You will gain insight into the patterns in your relationship, learn how to communicate more effectively, express the innermost feelings to each other, identify each other’s unmet needs and how to get your needs met from one another, rekindle love, and heal from past traumatic relationship experiences such as mistrust and infidelity.

Working with individuals & my approach

I also love and enjoy working with individuals, who struggle with various issues, such as chronic depression or anxiety, to name a few. My approach is attachment-based/Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and I am trained in several other modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness. But I customize each treatment based on my clients’ needs. – I am a certified CBT therapist, and currently in the process of getting certified in Sex Therapy and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy).

As an art therapist

As a registered art therapist (ATR), I believe in the healing power of art-making. Art supplies will be available for you if you would like to utilize art to express and process your feelings, but it’s not mandatory to make art in sessions.

My professional belief

We all have innate resources to help ourselves grow and thrive. Whether we work together for couples therapy, individual therapy, art therapy, or life coaching, my role as a therapist/coach is to help you access these hidden resources so you can live your life more whole-heartedly with purpose and intention. Even though I am trained in several different modalities, I believe that the deep and secure therapeutic relationship between a client and a therapist is one of the most important interventions in therapy. In our sessions, my clients often tell me that they feel truly understood, accepted, and supported.

On my downtime

I am currently in a Ph.D. program so life is very busy for me this moment. But in my spare time, I enjoy going hiking with my Yorkie, painting, doing yoga, taking Tango lessons, and going to operas.

I look forward to hearing from you!
