Biography

My work involves collaborating with individuals and couples on their own personal recipes for life satisfaction and what their lives will look like when the "problem" is no longer a problem. I try to carefully separate the "problem" from the person, who is often doing the best he or she can, so we can identify strengths, resiliencies, and resources that allow clients to construct a life worth living and a relationship worth celebrating. This does not mean ignoring difficult issues or painful areas, but it is important to know at the outset how we will know therapy has been successful.
I tend to work in a time sensitive format that prioritizes mutually agreed upon goals that we can reference along the way to know if we are making progress. In addition, I do longer term work on longer term issues if that is what the client is seeking and needs.
I also present workshops on Positive Psychology, which focuses on enhancing what we have, optimizing who we are, and building strengths as buffers against weaknesses rather than focusing solely on deficiencies. I utilize the latest research on happiness and life/relationship satisfaction both in my approach to therapy and my teaching.
