Individuals experience circumstances within the context of a system. In relationship therapy, my philosophy is to take into account each person within different systems including, family, couples, children, extended family, and relationships within your workplace. Each individual adds to the dynamic of relationships through his or her experiences. My clinical focus is through the lens of attachment, that is, how are the bonds we are creating effective or ineffective in our current lives. You are the expert in your own experiences. I collaboratively work with you to define, encourage, and assist, in a safe and trusting environment.

Specialization includes: Anxiety, Relationship Problems, Co-parenting, Blended Family, Grief Loss, Pre-marital, Work/Career issues, Executive/Leadership Counseling, Stress Management, Attachment, Parenting, Conflict Resolution, Life Transitions, Couples Communication. Working with each person through education/training in a comfortable supportive environment

Working with the objective of assisting you to build on strengths in relationships, and to help each person to identify patterns, which may help, or obstruct, their quest for achieving life goals. In the construct of intersubjectivity and neuropsychology I help guide individuals, couples, and families, to find a healthy balance in their relationships.
