About

The individuals, families, and couples I treat should expect to produce true fundamental change.I practice a brief systemic solution focused treatment. Be ready to work with me to construct a clear understanding of the problem/symptom in order to co-create an action plan. Clients should expect to practice new patterns of behavior both in and out of sessions. I prescribe strategic interventions such as tasks, rituals, enactments, and assignments. I have integrated my expertise as a psychotherapist with my life coaching skills.I see my role as a change agent. I specialize in high conflict relational challenges and divorce.
My passion for children lead to my work with couples, families, and when indicated schools, etc. to produce change. I assist families/couples with negotiating and or restructuring. Some presenting challenges include high conflict, finances, child problems, substance abuse, infidelity, a mental illness and more. In addition, I specialize in stage of life transitions.
I have integrated my expertise as a psychotherapist with my life coaching skills.Clients can expect a custom step by step action plan. I developed a model to address an underserved systemic crisis: DIVORCE. I specialize in educating and mediating custody, property, reducing emtional and financial losses.
