My Approach with Couples and Individuals

Individual Therapy—
The key to successful therapy begins with active listening – detailed attention 
to a client’s particular life circumstance begins to build mutual understanding,
which reveals original perspectives. I closely partner with each client to help
beliefs are explored. I am influenced by Imago, Humanistic, Gestalt, and
Psychodynamic theories. By combining these approaches which are tailored
to each client’s circumstance, insight is gained and a deeper and more
profound understanding of one’s self is reached.

Couples—
For over 11 years, I was an assistant for "Getting the Love You Want "
workshops held in Long Beach California. The workshops focus on the
principles of Imago Relationship Theory developed by Harville Hendrix, PhD.
In addition to the "Getting the Love You Want" workshops,
I have led couple's and single's workshops and groups using the principles of Imago Relationship Theory. This theory helps couple's and single's to heal childhood wounds, resolve conflicts, and heighten their communication skills. Imago therapy also provides a structure that creates safety and connection.

Adolescents—

My work as a high school teacher has helped to me understand teenagers and the problems they face each day. Being in their world and seeing what difficulties they face with life circumstances helps me to understand them and their process. My work with teens is not much different than adults. In addtion to respect, I carefully listen, guide, and validate the life experience being presented by each individual.

Groups—
A group dynamic can help you better understand your own situation as you witness yourself mirrored in others. Through the years, groups have always been an important adjunct in my work. I am now organizing a couple's group, and am planning a singles men's group. I will announce the time and format in the near future. If you have an interest in either group, please contact me at 323-687-1923.
