My Approach

I have personally committed to improving the relationships in my life that matter most to me. My relationship with my partner and family is only what it looks like today due to my desire to dedicate time and energy to resolving conflict as opposed to brushing them under the rug. I use personal experience along with a number of treatment modalities to help you clarify what's truly important and meaningful to you and help you use that knowledge to set goals and take actions that enrich the relationships in your life.
