Fiorella utilizes an emotion focused, attachment-based, and somatic approach in her work with individual, couples, and families. She draws on principles from holistic, evidenced-based modalities, including the Gottman Method, MEND model, and neuroception to support clients achieve positive change.
Fiorella specializes in marital and premarital counseling, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, stress, life transitions. Fiorella is certified in the Gottman Method Level I (a couple’s therapy approach), the MEND model (a family systems-oriented model), as well as certified in the SYMBIS Assessment (for premarital couples), all which have equipped her to better serve her clients.
Fiorella is a huge believer in viewing health as a whole and therefore uses a holistic therapy approach that welcomes and gives attention to all parts of you. She helps people get to the heart of those issues that are not letting them live the life they always wanted to live.
