Hopewell Counseling

My Approach

image11

My clinical style is grounded in the Family Systems Theory through the lens of Emotionally Focused Therapy which addresses presenting concerns by looking at the whole puzzle and understanding how each piece contributes to the bigger picture.  It is when these pieces don't fit that difficulties arise because individuals get stuck in an unhelpful dance of emotion, thought, and behavior which leads to disconnect whether that be in relationships or dealing with everyday concerns.  My goal is to provide guidance and to support you to rediscover your internal strengths and resources to shift the dance.  Therefore, it important I connect with you where you are at and build a relationship based on trust and safey so that together we journey on a path of self compassion, hope, and healing.


In addition to Emotionall Focused Therapy, I incorporate different techniques and tools from other modalities of counseling.  I am well versed in;

  • Internal Family Systems theory (IFS)
  • Emotional Focused Family Therapy -  Dr. Sue Johnson's "Hold me Tight", "Created for Connection", & "Lovesense"
  • Attachment Theory
  • Structural Family Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) 
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology - Dr. Seigel & Dr. Payne-Bryson's "Whole Brain Child"
