About

My professional career began in community mental health at a free clinic where I worked with clients from all walks of life. From those beginnings,I went on to work in a hospital based drug and alcohol program. While there, I worked extensively with adolescents, couples and families. For the last 29 years, I have been in private practice and have developed a passion for working with couples and adolescent /adult families. I decided to train in the Gottman Method of Marital Therapy and became a Certified Gottman Therapist. I enjoy the Gottman Method with Couples and Families because it has "teachable tools" to offer my clients that they can apply in their lives outside of my office. The Gottman Method seems to build confidence in their ability to manage conflict and to build more satisfying relationships.
