As a marriage and family therapist, I am highly trained in helping people achieve their best! My objectives are to provide my clients with the support and guidance they need to reach their goals in therapy. I work with individuals, children, adolescents and families in learning about their personalities and strengths and how they can use those strengths to overcome any issues. In this process, I teach my clients to regulate their emotions, establish healthy boundaries for themselves, and learn to communicate their needs in a respectful way.
My work with parents has proven to be very beneficial in establishing more peace in the home by teaching families to communicate assertively and respectfully. Parents learn to develop a more positive and empathic approach to parenting, with an overall understanding of their child's developmental stage and level of maturity. Through my workshops and in parent training sessions, I provide successful strategies and tools for parents to develop a healthier relationship with their children.
I am a facilitator for the Love and Logic parenting Curricula and offer workshops that provide practical tools for raising children, while offering opportunities for growth in character and empowering children to become more responsible, and parents more confident in their ability to manage their own emotions. My parenting workshops are presented in local schools and churches, and in my conference room at my office. You may also request to have a small group workshop in the comfort of your home. My workshops can be presented in two formats. I offer one day workshops as an introduction, or five weekly evening workshops for the entire program.
For couples, I provide counseling for marital conflict, infidelity, communication skills, and overall health in relationships. I seek to discover family of origin issues that may be affecting the couple relationship, as well as how those same issues can become strengths.
