Practice Description: My approach with both individuals and couples is relational (I give feedback, and we TALK!) -

When I work with couples, I find that most just need help in finding the “couple bubble” they used to inhabit. In practice for almost 20 years, my approach is one of intuition, gentleness, curiosity, and a willingness to aid you in your journey to discover how to defuse conflict, and feel happy with each other again. Therapy gives you tools and skills to have a more fulfilling relationship - things they don't teach you in school!

I work with both children and adults, and use the advanced supervised training I've had in Emotionally Focused Therapy, when working with couples. I was one of the founding members of an ongoing dynamic Gestalt study group.
