Announcement icon I am using the online platform of Zoom to see my clients online. I also have an iPhone and understand that may be able to be used as well.
I am prepared to have clients online. I have a certificate in telehealth. You can stay hoe or at work and have a session via the internet with me, no traveling.Are there things for you, your child, or family member that you wish were different? Counseling addresses: where you are now, processes how you got there, and how to change things to improve your life. Solution Focused Brief Therapy guides you to understand what is and is not working well for you. Then, what could be different and what the process of change could be for you. Are you ready to reach for a better you, a better life, better relationships, or spiritual depth? I
I am trained in several relationship therapies (Gottman, Imago, Emotionally Focused, PREP, and Prepare/Enrich) and I have many years (17) of experience in seeing and helping couples navigate many issues of couples. I have training in child therapies and since families are made up of couples and children, I see many families for parenting, and co-parenting.
I have found that clients benefits from research based knowledge of relationships and attachment theory. Especially when they are approaching how to understand and improve themselves or any of their relationships. I use talk therapy or many expressive arts therapies, as a gentle, effective way to explore oneself.
