Working together to help resolve conflict
“We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.”
– Margaret Mead
Conflict can come from within, due to our experiences and struggles, and it can evolve in our primary relationships.
As a clinical psychologist with 35 years of experience, I provide a diverse range of services to adults, couples and families using a variety of strategies from different approaches to try to best address the issues faced by my clients. Whether working with adults or couples, I emphasize positive growth and self-acceptance, recognizing and building upon strengths. I am committed to helping healthy relationships thrive by strengthening emotional connection and intimacy.
When working with families of divorce, I serve as a co-parent counselor, parent coordinator, collaborative divorce family specialist and mediator. I help divorcing parents decrease conflict, make healthier decisions (e.g., related to parenting schedules) and build more effective co-parenting relationships. Regardless of changes in their marital status, I am committed to helping parents give their children a sense of family.
Psychotherapy can be conducted using many different approaches. In my work, I adopt a very positive perspective (instead of a stigmatizing illness model) to help my clients recognize and build on their strengths.
Divorce doesn’t have to be a lifelong prison sentence full of hostility and conflict for you and your children. I focus on helping parents go through divorce in a non-adversarial manner while concentrating on helping children get the best family life possible. I do not testify in court. Instead I work directly with parents and attorneys to promote co-parenting and parent-driven, child-centered family decisions.
Running a professional practice can be a daunting task. There is so much that is not taught in a professional training program, yet essential to running an effective and profitable practice in a responsible manner.
