Happiness in life is dependent upon relationships - the relationship with yourself, your partner, your children - and the other significant, albeit difficult, people in your life. The bulk of my practice has focused on this very specialized area of interacting with other people. Whether doing discernment counseling with a couple contemplating divorce, working with couples to discuss and workout seemingly intractable issues----as well as mediation services for divorcing couples, relationships are the foundation of contentment and I have experienced a great deal of success with clients in this area.

At some point we all struggle to adjustment to life's changes; it's normal to feel stuck and I believe people have what it takes to adjust. Couples often come to me for help in distress and are confused about how or why their relationship has derailed. I am dedicated to helping people build stronger; more intimate relationships and I use several modalities when attempting to help couples in distress. A high percentage of my caseload at any given time is comprised of couples.

I also have experience working with families on co-parenting and communication in the midst of divorce.
In my work with children and teenagers, I see behavior as having meaning. Difficult behaviors such as defiance, tantrums, aggression, and isolation are often the youth’s maladaptive attempts at communicating emotions. I see my role as a facilitator of effective communication, collaborating with youth to understand their experiences and identify/verbalize their thoughts and feelings. With a decade of working with kids in a variety of settings, I work primarily from a relational and attachment-based foundation, which utilizes compassion, attunement, and co-regulation to promote wellbeing through enhanced relationships and self-worth.

Divorce Therapists
The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.

A divorce therapist in Brentwood can help you by exploring the struggles you’re facing, identifying whether or not those problems can be resolved, creating a realistic picture of what life would look like after divorce, and how your children could be affected and protected. In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
