My intention is that couples, families, and individuals leave my office empowered to meet
outside the therapy room with intentionality, resiliency, creativity, integrity, humor and a clear sense of self and their relationship to the world.
I use a strength-based collaborative and active approach and believe in treating the whole person from a biopsychosocial perspective. I integrate research from various sources including: neuroscience and its impact on overall health, individual and relational functioning; the importance of authenticity, emotionality, resiliency and humor, and values identification across personal and professional contexts. Specific resources include: Psychobiological Approach to Couples Counseling, The Daring Way, and Contemplative Based Trauma Resiliency Training (The Portable Calm).
