Therapeutic Approach

My passion is teaching how to love. I work with couples and individuals to learn how to give and receive love that will lead to long lasting healthy relationships. I love to work with singles on how to attract the partner you are longing for and how to set up your new relationship with success. I use Gottman method of teaching what it takes to have a successful marriage.

My treatment approach is strength based, educational, and solution focused. I strongly believe that within a supportive treatment environment, clients have the capacity to effectively identify and work through issues. With clear identification of goals, whether behavioral or interpersonal, strategies can be developed to live a more effective and successful life. In a highly interactive therapeutic setting, I listen, teach, coach and assist in problem solving.

I draw from a variety of theoretical models to help accomplish goals including: Gottman Marital/Emotional Intelligence, Cognitive-behavioral, Psychodynamic and Gestalt. While change can be challenging, my core clinical approach is that mindful behavior and emotional understanding can positively transform the overall trajectory of a person's life. Recent trainings: Divorce Busting with Michele Weiner-Davis, Certified Love Educator with Dr. Patricia Love; Gottman Advance Training in Marital/Couples Therapy, PAIRS Certification, and Guided Imagery with Dr. Chuck and Patti Leviton.
