Compassion is the best word I can find to describe what matters to be in the relationship between a client and myself. The amount of vulnerability and courage it takes to be aware and also act on the awareness that you need guidance is monumental. That act can literally be life-changing. I honor the role of being the one to provide guidance, not as someone who knows more than you, but as someone who is genuinely interested in walking with you towards healing.
Throughout this journey, I'll operate out of the Bowen Family Systems theory. It's my belief that most of our stressors are related to the imbalances found within our immediate families or our 'base'. Our main goal is not to figure out who or what to blame for that stress, but to instead figure out how to get that base balanced.
I have passion and experience in working within the areas of breakup/divorce recovery, marital conflict, family conflict, co-parenting, premarital counseling, couples counseling, women's issues and minority issues.
