My Approach

My clinical style is grounded in the Family Systems Theory which addresses presenting concerns looking at the whole puzzle and understanding how each of the pieces plays a role in the situation at hand.  I predominantly work through the lens of Structural Family Therapy incorporating different techniques and tools from other models of counseling.  I am well versed in;

  • Internal Family Systems theory (IFS)
  • Emotional Focused Family Therapy
  • Rosenberg's Non-Violent Communication
  • Structural Family Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) 
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology - Dr. Seigel & Dr. Payne-Bryson's "Whole Brain Child"


It is my belief that the difficulties arise because individuals get stuck in unhelpful patterns of thoughts and behaviors and need guidance and support to rediscover his/her internal strengths and resources to shift the pattern.  Therefore, I connect with the client where they are and together we journey on a path to embracing our true self, hope, and healing.
