My inclusive practice is anchored in a respect for the cultural lens that shape a diversity of world views. My therapeutic approach is especially effective for changing repetitive unproductive behavioral patterns in interpersonal relationships and supporting new insights for understanding that the same mindset cannot be used for finding solutions to the complex problems that created them.

Because the family is the essential context for our mental health, helping family members cope with stressors related to normative life transitions, and the traumatizing effects of unforeseen crises such as mental or physical illness, addiction, divorce, and parenting special needs children or adolescents form the core of my practice.

I am especially interested in helping emerging young adults make positive life choices and successfully manage identiy issues associated with their race/ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. My family centerd approach is effective with those of a non-traditional structure, including adoptive, pre-adoptive, same-sex and cross racial/cultural parenting homes.
