As a person, I bring warmth, compassion, humor and understanding to my work. Professionally, I utilize an integrative behavioral model in order to help individuals tap their emotional and cognitive resources to lead rich and fulfilling lives. When working with couples, I take an action- oriented and strengths based approach that allows the couple to see noticeable changes fairly quickly. Together, we focus on behavioral and interactive patterns that maintain ongoing issues within important areas such as communication, intimacy, and lifestyle. In harmony with making behavioral adjustments, I support the couple in developing a deeper understanding of themselves, their partner and their unit.
