Practice Description: I help people who are “stuck” find a way to move forward.

I believe that a good therapist is one who connects with clients and their worldview in a meaningful way and can help change a person’s life forever. The change can create ripples of wellness/happiness/hope/enjoyment of life/purpose for everyone in the person’s life and even for subsequent generations. I feel almost an evangelical zeal for the work and what it can do to effect positive change in people’s lives.

I have developed a cutting-edge relationship model “Yours, Mine, Ours: Romantic Partnership Done Right.” My innovative approach assists clients in simultaneously developing their individual identities while teaching them how to successfully integrate that unique identity into their partnerships.

I integrate both inner personal dynamics with inter-personal skills for individuals going through separation and divorce.

I also specialize in helping committed careerists and business people to negotiate boundaries for their work and their personal relationships.
