I also focus on culture, which is very important to the way we perceive ourselves, are perceived within relationships and by the world. My clients begin to feel better when they come understand their challenges through the lenses of race, culture, class, gender and ethnicity — cultural forces that have profound impact on our personal and professional development.
While “couples therapy” implies romantic involvement, this process is useful for any two parties encountering difficulties together. They may be a parent and child, business partners, co-workers or even just friends.
With over 20 years experience, my style is solution-focused, collaborative, flexible, and interactive. My training includes psychoanalytic and cognitive behavioral therapies, with specific training in substance abuse, codependency, and 12-step modalities. My expertise also includes anxiety, emotional intelligence, conflict management, work-life integration and cultural diversity. I have additional training in relationship coaching.
While many clients find that longterm therapy pays for itself, short-term options are totally available and often produce lasting results.
