With couples I use a combination of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy focused on expanding and re-organizing emotions, shifting interactional patterns, and increasing connection. I also use Cognitive/Behavioral Couple Therapy focused on changing behavioral and cognitive patterns that hinder the relationship.


With families I use a combination of Structural Family Therapy focused on replacing troublesome interactional patterns with more helpful patterns, appropriate power distribution, and creating order and structure with in the family system. Family therapy is almost always a part of therapy with adolescents. I also use Cognitive/Behavioral Family Therapy focused on changing behavioral and cognitive patterns that hinder  relationships between family members.


With adults and adolescents I  use Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy focused on changing behavioral and cognitive patterns that underlie current individual and relational struggles. Family interactional and relational interactions patterns are also a focus in individual sessions.

With consumers who have experienced trauma I use Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This focuses on ways to cope with current symptoms due to trauma, talking through the trauma, and changing any unhelpful thoughts surrounding the trauma that may be keeping the consumer from recovering from the trauma.
