I have served as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for 35 years. My experience includes private practice, adjunct college instructor in Psychology and Alcohol and Drug Studies, and supervisor of MFT interns and trainees.
When I work with a couple I listen to each person's feelings, accepting where they are. The first goal in counseling is to learn how to manage those feelings which may be very intense, such as anger, fear, shock and anxiety. I ask couples to agree to certain guidelines which may help them begin to feel some relief... and hope. During the next phase, the couple begins to redevelop trust. The focus becomes improved communication skills, cycles of family patterns, tolerance of differences and forgiveness. I have helped many couples find their way through the aftermath of an affair and go on to create the relationship they have always wanted.
I have a warm, friendly, relaxed style to help you feel more at ease. You have already taken the first step in seeking help. I would be pleased to talk with you about ways in which I can be of help.
