Treatment Philosophy “The nice thing about things that are urgent is that if you wait long enough they aren’t urgent anymore.” --Dr. Amos Tversky The demands of modern society have created an environment in which every moment of every day seems to be urgent. This constant sense of urgency leads to stress, which in turn makes you feel overwhelmed and unfulfilled. You may feel like each day is no more than a series of crises and that you can’t keep up with everything. Finding your way out of this loop requires stepping outside of your daily routine and figuring out what really matters to you.

My practice is fairly evenly divided across individuals, couples and corporations. I address issues ranging from anxiety, depression, marital/relationship, parenting/family concerns to life transitions and executive/organizational development. I received my doctorate in 1986 and went on to serve as president of the Georgia Psychological Association from 1999-2000. I rely on a blend of cognitive behavioral and family systems therapy to help clients develop a practical, common sense path to change. The central premise is that in order to change your life, you must first understand how it used to work and why it doesn't anymore.

Infidelity ocurrs in many marriages. You may discover your partner has had an affair, or many affairs, and now you are experiencing the devastation this creates. Feeling pain and anger are expected. Allowing both you and your partner to express what you are both feeling and thinking is vital to the healing process. I will help you through this. Looking at yourself and your marriage can provide valuable insight into why infidelity happened. Some marriages survive and become great, some do not. The self awareness you will gain from this process is life changing.

Brokenness and disillusionment in marriage saddens me because I know there is a better way. My passion as an Emotionally Focused and Gottman Couple's Therapy trained counselor is to bring hope and to assist in building extraordinary connection between partners who have lost their way to each other's hearts. My practice is all about relationships--helping singles understand the importance of discovering and bringing their authentic selves to relationships, helping the divorced to rediscover their voices and significance in the midst of their grief, and preparing premarital couples for the uncharted but rewarding journey of marriage.

Thank you for taking the time to explore my approach to therapy. I have over 5 years of experience working with people to heal trauma. Traumatic events could include any experience a person perceived as threatening. My therapeutic modality is using a combination of Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Internal Relationship Focusing (IRF). I believe each client's body has the wisdom to guide us, client and therapist, through the resolution of trauma symptoms. I love to work with people who have spent considerable time in talk therapy and are now looking for alternative approaches.
