My primary focus is on helping clients improve their emotional intelligence and relationship skills. I am certified in Imago Relationship Therapy, based on the best selling book, GETTING THE LOVE YOU WANT, by Dr. Harville Hendrix, PhD (as seen on the Oprah Show 17 times!). I had the opportunity to assist Dr. Hendrix at his couples workshop in December, 2010. This pioneering, 30 year old program helps couples learn the art of dialogue to restore their positive loving connection with one another. Please see the International website for more general information, testimonials, and benefits.
