My specialization in family systems includes high conflict co-parenting, parent-child conflict, high conflict personalities, parental alienation, and reunification therapy. I treat more than just mental, emotional, behavioral, disorders. My additional training certifies that I am skilled to treat the disorder and the impact these disorders have on relationship networks such as social setting, school, dating, relationships and families. I determine the core of family dysfunction and how to fix it. I individualize treatment and choose the specific type of therapy that meets your needs that target the desired outcome of therapy.

My experience includes assessing and counseling couples, families and individuals of all ages, maintaining family and individual safety, home studies, domestic violence, parenting skills, anger management and stress management. I am an advocate of Solution-Focused-approach while promoting the way our past influences our present-day communication and parenting.

I encourage a non-adversarial approach in identifying individual and family patterns, risks, needs to determine where the breakdown in an individual or family occurred. I strengthen, restructure, and reorganize relationships. I have testified as an expert witness and am specifically trained to understand the complexities of interpersonal relationships.
