I work with tough issues & provide validation, guidance through non judgement & empathetic listening but I am not afraid to challenge when appropriate. Some of my areas of focus are: Loss and Grief, High Conflict couples therapy, Infidelity, Building relationships (Dating), Pornography addiction, Suicidal ideations, Trauma, Emotional Dysregulation (Anger, Defensivness, Avoidance); Feelings of failure or Not being enough.

I am not married to one type of therapy intervention model because I believe that the client should determine the model.
