I dedicated my post-graduate training and experience to couples counseling work to better serve my clients.
My approach is based on the work of Murray Bowen, who is the father of the field of marriage and family counseling. Bowen was a scientist, first and foremost, and he observed the human family to be an ecosystem full of the complex, reciprocal relationships found in the natural world. He understood the automatic spread of anxiety from one individual to another to be a major factor in mental illness.
My approach helps people to respond from the best in them. What is the best in us? It is our ability to step back, settle down, and reach for the humanity within all of us. Being more thoughtful and self-observant is the key—the secret—to unconditional, passionate, satisfying love, as many of my clients can attest to.
On a more personal note, I’ve been married 13 years, a parent to two daughters, and a small business owner—so the journey to create a meaningful life is one that resonates with me. I want you to get the help that you need to find your own meaning in your life and in your relationships, too. Contact me to find out how!
