As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have been providing psychotherapy for almost thirty years with all ages and all different populations. My treatment modality encompasses an electic style based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Brief/Solution Focused Therapy. An integral part of my work with clients includes establishing a collaborative and therapeutic alliance, identifying goals, and developing solutions. I empower clients to identify their resilience, resourcefulness and systems of support where I guide clients through the process of discovering their aspirations and developing solutions.
I truly have a gift of providing empathy and rapport and helping individuals acknowledge their pain and move toward solutions through personal and spiritual growth. I have had tremendous success in working with the spirited, strong willed child, adolescent in helping parents develop improved parenting skills and addressing conflict resolution.
I had facilitated anger management and domestic violence groups for men and women. I empower women and men to move from the role of victim to a survivor, thriver role. I specialize in relationship counseling, marital conflict resolution, divorce and women's issues in healing childhood trauma.
