My early training in graduate school was in existential psychotherapy. My post doctoral work was in Psychoanalytic psychotherapy with individuals. Following my post doctoral work I trained in the the post modern approach to psychotherapy, which focused on a solution focused, brief therapy model. My current approach considers the needs and presenting issues of the individual person or couple.The treatment can range from short term, specific work to deeper family of origin therapy. I am an active participant in the process. I work collaboratively with my clients. My approach with couples is from a family systems approach. I see the “relationship” as the client. I work with the couple to recalibrate their system. Each partner is encouraged to take an active role in the change.
