Trained in various cognitive behavioral and mindfulness treatment approaches, I act as a support and guide in helping clients achieve a better quality of life. I specialize in helping families and individuals adjust to major medical illnesses. I also have expertise working with teens who are navigating a host of new social and academic pressures in the high school and college years.
Couple's therapy requires a different style of treatment. Although I take a skills-based approach, i.e. facilitating clear, non-judgmental communication, I also use insight-oriented therapy as a backdrop. Research suggests that having insight into your partner's history can be key to happiness over the long-haul. In other words, understanding (and being able to accept) your partner's worries and values will enable you to put unwanted behavior in-context. Ultimately, this fosters a more tolerant home environment, and I can help you build this.
