In a warm and safe environment I help couples that feel dissatisfied and disconnected in their relationship grow to have happy and healthy lives together! I enjoy teaching communication skills so that they are able to be present with each other, understand each other and resolve differences. With that, there's incredible growth in areas including sex, parenting, finances, and family of origin issues. I also enjoy working with those struggling with anxiety and depression; helping to set them free to love and live fully!

Also, I have worked in Oncology Therapy, providing group, individual and family therapy to patients and their families.
Asking for help is a difficult step for anyone, especially those that cannot figure out how to get "unstuck". Many of us get caught up in negative thought patterns and have no idea how to change. My ideal client is one that is looking to work on themselves and their interpersonal relationships, in a positive and nurturing way. In therapy, we will work together to find different ways for you to become the best version of yourself using a variety of positive therapeutic modalities.

With Family Systems being my background, some hurdles all tie together like a jigsaw puzzle in the end.
At some point in our life we hit a bump in the road. It has been my experience that with the right tools and a supportive system, the client can do extremely well in therapy. My goal is not to have the client in therapy for years to come, but rather to enable them to get over the hurdle they face and live the most productive life that they can. Most of the work I do is with either individuals or families. My training is in Family Systems and I am an ongoing participant at the Family Institute of Westchester.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in West Palm Beach or for a West Palm Beach family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in West Palm Beach using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
