I am a graduate of The Couples Institute and my training areas include:
- Effective and healthy communication
- Sex issues
- Open and Polyamorous Relationships
- Infidelity/Breaking agreements
- Navigating sexual orientation and gender role issues
In order to effectively meet your therapeutic needs, my practice includes a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) , the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, and Sex Therapy with an overall focus on the importance of the relationship and connection between the therapist and the clients to ensure that you feel secure and heard. I use CBT to help you see your relationship in a more objective manner in order to change behavior that is unnecessary and has proven toxic for the relationship and family unit. The Developmental Model of Couples Therapy utilizes understanding of what influences current relationship styles to help couples know themselves and each other better and more skillfully manage conflict.
