NOW OFFERING ONLINE SESSIONS! Greetings! My name is Eric. I originally hail from the Chicago area but moved to Denver in 1993. Now in Highlands Ranch with my partner, I share custody of a smart, brave, beautiful, and silly little girl. I'm curious to learn more about you!

My Approach

The model I employ for couples and partners is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). This evidence-based model helps get to the bottom of underlying issues which create friction in relationships, so that conflicts can be addressed at their source, rather than going around and around in endless, unresolved cycles. For individual clients, I customize an integrated approach aligned with my client’s needs. I start by creating safety and a solid working relationship, then teach skills to calm and balance the nervous system. From there, we work on strengthening personal boundaries. Only after we create safety in this way do we dive into deeper work on trauma resolution, for those clients who want to do so. For that work, I employ somatically-based techniques, which take advantage of the body and mind's natural ability to heal - an ability that is often blocked. Once those blocks are removed, the internal "landmines" people experience as triggers can be defused.

My Background

I obtained my Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver, with a specialization in Couple and Family Therapy. I also earned Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) status. I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate with the State of Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (MFTC.0013704). I did two internships, one at Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute, and the other at CeDAR – Center for Dependency, Addiction, and Rehabilitation, a part of the University of Colorado Hospital system. At Noeticus, I learned a great deal about trauma and its treatment, including receiving training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I also took an additional, intensive Level 1 training course in a somatic processing modality called Trauma Dynamics. At CeDAR, I had an opportunity to work closely with families recovering from addiction and substance use disorders, where one or more members are in recovery.
