Working with individuals and couples going through life changes, including medical issues, is my specialty. I have dedicated my career helping people make their relationships, marriage, healthier and happier learning about themselves and communicating needs and goals more effectively. Couples also come to me when they have already made a decision to separate and want to do it in healthy ways. I am part of the Collaborative Divorce Community in Northern Virginia where I team up with attorneys and financial experts to help people find a more amicable way to divorce with more mental health support for the whole family.

My MS in Conflict Resolution and BS in Decision Science combined with my divorce and family mediation work and cross-cultural negotiations allows me to offer a practical option between reflective therapy and continued conflict spiral.
Do you love your partner yet hate your recurring conflicts? You ask yourself “why” only to come up empty-handed, or blaming your partner. It is not a mystery. A tandem approach to relationship conflict management and resolution is in order: effective communication leading to understanding and conflict management through principled negotiation. You and your partner are evolving beings. The resulting friction in the form of arguments/fights can be addressed by learning strategies to allow flexibility for growth while strengthening the foundation of your togetherness.

4) Inability to resolve problems-not the problems themselves lead to separation and divorce .
Couples work is challenging and emotionally provocative. Feelings of frustration, pain, anger and discouragement alternating with relief, hopefulness, and excitement are common among couples who are trying to resolve their marital discord. Although each couple is unique the following principles hold true in treatment of the majority of partners. 1) A good marriage requires both spouses to psychologically separate from their family of origin and shift their primary love, loyalty to each other. An individual cannot fully participate in an interdepended relationship without being first an independent and autonomous person.
