Areas of Expertise: With over 25 years of experience, I have worked with a wide range of presenting issues with couples and individuals from diverse backgrounds. I became certified in The Gottman Method in 2005. I specialize in couples work (including nontraditional relationships), adult ADD, and trauma recovery. I am trained in EMDR. From an empathic perspective, I focus on the inherent uniqueness of my clients to promote self-actualization.
Therapy Approach: Since 1986, I have worked in a variety of mental health settings with a range of presenting issues among couples and individuals from diverse backgrounds. In addition, I specialize in the emotional aspects of learning disabilities, adult ADD, and trauma recovery. I approach therapy with an empathic perspective to promote self-actualization. Throughout life, I believe that we all need relationships with others to sustain us. I believe in meeting people where they are and addressing pertinent relationship issues in a sensitive, yet challenging way.
I am certified as a Master Trainer by The Gottman Institute. I regularly lead: The Art & Science of Love: A Weekend Workshop for Couples, Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Trainings for couples, and Gottman Level 1, 2, and 3 trainings for professionals.
