The complexities of families and relationships have intrigued me ever since I was a young girl. Even after 30+ years of practice in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy, I'm still intrigued and challenged to find creative ways to solve the difficulties we all encounter in our relationships with others. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Arizona I have been a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) since 1981. I am a Past President of the Arizona Division of AAMFT. I am in private practice working with individuals, couples and families.
Change can be difficult to accomplish! It takes work but produces great rewards. It can be frustrating when we take two steps forward, one step backward. The change process that moves from unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence takes time and patience.
I believe that change takes place when a person decides to behave, act, think, feel or interact in a different way. Each of us must make this decision for ourselves. However, we can choose people to help guide us in our quest to create positive changes in our lives.
La complejidad de las familias y las relaciones me ha intrigado desde que yo era una niña. Incluso después de 30 años de práctica en el campo de la terapia matrimonial y familiar, todavía estoy intrigado y el desafío de encontrar formas creativas para resolver las dificultades que todos encontramos en nuestras relaciones con los demás. Como un matrimonio y terapeuta familiar en Arizona he sido miembro de la Asociación Americana de matrimonio y terapia de la familia (AAMFT) desde 1981. Era presidente de la división de Arizona de AAMFT. Estoy en la práctica privada, trabaja con individuos, parejas y familias.
¡El cambio puede ser difícil de lograr! Toma trabajo pero produce grandes recompensas. Puede ser frustrante cuando tomamos dos pasos adelante, un paso hacia atrás. El proceso de cambio que pasa de incompetencia inconsciente a la competencia inconsciente requiere tiempo y paciencia.
Creo que el cambio ocurre cuando una persona decide comportarse, actuar, pensar, sentir o interactuar de una manera diferente. Cada uno de nosotros debe tomar esta decisión por nosotros mismos. Sin embargo, podemos elegir personas para ayudar a guiarnos en nuestra búsqueda para crear cambios positivos en nuestras vidas
