The cornerstone of my practice has been dealing with relationship promises made and betrayed between couples, by singles, in LGBT partnerships, by seniors. *** Women who are not sure how to get back into the dating scene at midlife regain confidence. *** Couples who have sexual problems focusing on disorders of desire find ways of rekindling the fire. *** LGBTQ partners deciding whether to parent, or how to stand united against external stresses gain new skills and inner strength. *** Decision making about breakups or staying together are best arrived at with a third party to clarify thinking and issues. *** Clients and I work together to repair injuries to an individual's pride and heart. When working with individuals, the conflicts of being cast aside or whether to stay or go are primary. *** When working with couples, counseling is usually with the couple but can be successful even if only one person participates. I utilize various methods depending upon the needs expressed and each session we set goals and evaluate how the therapy is progressing.
My methods may include written assignments, role playing, reading assignments, problem solving and other communication skills.
Using the Real Institute Training model an intensive short term (3 months of bi-weekly 2 hour sessions) for couples on the brink and who have not been helped by other therapists.
