Who Am I?
I have been providing insight and direction to individuals, couples, family members, and peers for over 30 years in the areas of personal growth and professional development. I believe that relationships are the most critical priority in life and that people are our most precious resource. I was fortunate to learn about relationship styles in a way that easily translates to better communication, smooth conflict resolution, and increased satisfaction in the lives of people at all stages of their relationships. I use my skills as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Professional Coach to assist my clients in building strong and lasting relationships as well as in repairing those relationships that have suffered setbacks.
I will help you to understand people and interact with them in a way that builds trust, safety, shared purpose, and lasting connection. I invite you to walk with me on a path that is aimed at achieving your personal happiness.
About My Program
Who It Is For?
This program is designed for anyone interested in improving their relationships. The course is relevant for couples in dating and premarital stages as well as those in long term relationships with many years together. Family members who are having difficulty getting along and friendships that are needing healing can also benefit. It is for individuals wanting to gain relationship-building strategies to use in their interactions with others in the world.
Who It Is Not For?
This program is not for those unwilling to examine themselves and their styles of interacting with others. It is not for those who believe that someone else is always to blame for the breakdowns in their personal relationships.
