What are you proud of in your practice?
I treat clients of all ages, from children to senior citizens because I am aware that life can be a challenge at any age. My philosophy is that existing issues and potential problems can be prevented or minimized. I work with clients to develop a variety of skills that can help them to effectively cope with relationships such as marriage, parenting, friendship and work.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
People seek couples therapy for different reasons. Perhaps your marriage is in crisis, or you’re trapped in a downward spiral of fighting and gridlock, or you avoid conflict and are afraid to venture into the deeper waters of negotiation and discussion. Whatever the reason, couples therapy can help. With divorce rates at over 50%, and with 87% of couples going into crisis after the birth of their first child, couples counseling is neither uncommon nor a last resort, and it can help immensely in situations of crisis. All relationships go through difficult times. It can be easy to mistake these times as a sign that your relationship is destined to end, when in reality this may not be the case. Crisis is a crossroads that may hold the potential for deeper intimacy and new growth between you and your partner.
