Practice Description
I use a family systems orientation to work with individuals, couples, and families with a full range of presenting issues. When I see couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to understand and get underneath the emotional distress that creates distance between partners and threatens the relationship. I also use EMDR as a tool to help people lay to rest traumatic memories that continue to reverberate in their present lives. I have become more and more interested over time in the integration of what we believe to be true and the strong emotions that seem so irrational, yet are very much a part of who we are. As highly social beings, much of what ails us boils down to relationships that disappoint us. Solving this puzzle is what most interests me in working with people on the wide range of problems affecting them.
