Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)

As a Marriage & Family Therapist and Individual and Couple's therapist, I work with individuals, families, couples, teens and children (- with their parents). Over 32 years, I have considerable experience working with issues including marriage, divorce, affairs, communication issues, parenting, blending and combining families, issues arising from various family stage transitions and emotional, physical and psychological conditions including depression and anxiety. Sometimes people don't want to go back and revisit and detail the difficult and sometimes, abusive experiences in life. That is fine. Therapy addresses the emotional recovery process and how you proceed from where you are and how to best resolve, manage, accept, balance or address what may include a biologically influenced condition like anxiety, depression, ADHD and PTSD, as examples. Therapy is based in the roots of where you have been, what happened, how it affected you and your current functioning in life, relationships and in self-management. I am going to listen and ask lots of questions, maybe suggest reading or videos or movies, provide support, respect and understanding and ideas. I'm not going to just listen. Therapy with me is an active process and because therapy often includes tears, I try to use humor & skill building so that you feel better, more competent, understood, that I am interested in providing the support you need to gain the insight, accomplish change or see another perspective.

I am also a Life Coach and one of my coaching / training specialties is helping people who have to continue work relationships, co-parenting relationships or family relationships with abusive, psychological and emotional terrorists - sometimes character disordered people or narcissists who seem to thrive while making your life as difficult and as miserable as possible.

I work with all couples and previously taught both Advanced Family Therapy and Advanced Marriage Therapy at the graduate level, and Psychology and Developmental Life Span Psychology at the undergraduate level.
