My Approach to Helping
I provide a confidential, caring and non-judgmental environment in which you can feel safe to find positive solutions to your problems.
I will help you find positive solutions to your problems that "fit for you" and provide you with the emotional support to get through the difficult times.
If you have been struggling with a difficult situation for a long time, or recently have been confronted with a new challenge and feel "stuck" I am ready to listen.
More Info About My Practice
My expertise and passion is working to find solutions for couples contemplating or facing divorce, and blended or "step" families beginning a new chapter. While the focus is on relationship issues that center around divorce and remarriage, issues that are often made more difficult as a result of the divorce, such as illness, grief, loss , care-giving, adolescent angst, are also addressed. As a Marriage and Family therapist I am skilled at working with one or more family members in a session, and believe that if one family member has a problem all family members will be affected.
My background with families and children is diverse in regards to therapeutic and educational expertise and perspectives, which I am committed to sharing with you.
Along with Dr. Debbie Swayman, LMFT, I am a co-author of the DCF/FLA. Court approved - required Parent Education Family Stabilization class Proactive Parenting after Divorce and the monthly column "Family Matters" as well as FYIfamily Guides.
