Some of the statements that I have received from my clients as we discussed their goals are: “I want to learn how to say no and be okay with it,” "I want soul intimacy," "I want to feel safe, knowing that my spouse will protect me," "I want to learn how to communicate my feelings, and be heard," "I want to be married to my best friend," "I want to overcome my resentment and anger," "I want to feel like I matter to my husband," "I want to heal from my trauma and experience true love and intimacy" I want to gain confidence and feel better about myself," "I want to stop living on the cliff and enjoy my life," etc.
As an attachment focused and trauma resolution (EMDR) therapist, I know three things for sure: that people are needy until their needs are met; that trust, and safety are critical for a healthy marriage/relationship; and that boundary setting is self-respect.
I have spent my professional life helping couples and women overcome fear and begin to experience trust, safety, and intimacy by combining research, science, and scripture in my practice. My therapeutic approach of compassion and empathy helps couples heal from marital distress and confidently enjoy their marriage without the fear of divorce. Women leave my practice feeling confident in themselves and their abilities.
