A healthy family fulfills deep needs for tenderness, sharing and love.

A healthy family promotes healthy individual development and maturity.

When our family is healthy, our individuality flourishes and thrives. However, when our spouse or child is upset or troubled, there exists a stress that affects all members of our family. I have extensive experience in working with clients of diverse backgrounds – including gay, lesbian, and transgender clients – with relationship issues, diversity issues and cultural differences, as well as with people seeking help with anger, feelings of loss of control, depression, addiction issues, anxiety and panic.

I help families significantly improve the quality of their lives on a daily basis. Our own emotional maturity is tested within the relationships we have with our family members.

I work both with family members as a whole group and with individuals or components of the family in order to promote and improve safe and clear communication.

I support the love, respect, acceptance and integrity of each member of the family as a unique individual.

I also work with parents to provide help with the differing and specific lifespan tasks of relating with their children – in order to successfully meet the challenges of raising a family.

I also work with parents to help them develop the skills to successfully negotiate the specific stages of child and adolescent development.  It is important to relate to children in ways that are in accord with the different stages of their lifespan.

I am results oriented!
