Clinical Director

727 Penn St., West Palm Beach, Florida

While it can be interesting to explore all the roots of family problems, it can also be painful. More important, it almost never helps families to function better. Instead of dredging up the past (which wastes lots of time and money and cannot be changed), I help families to build solutions that are effective and permanent -- even if they don't fully understand how the problems developed.

Family systems have a huge impact on our life. There has always been the argument between nature and nurture as to the cause of any emotional issues we face. The reality is there is some of both involved. It is usually the client who comes in for the counseling but a lot of the solution is found in the family system. Many influences and issues are passed through generations of a family. Therefore there are times when it is profitable to work with the entire family in counseling. Although we are not committed to solely a family systems approach to counseling we do recognize the need to address family issues that are often personified in the member with the perceived problem.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

As one who understands that our realities are suspended in evolving situations such as relationships known as the family system, the reverberations of what takes place here and now—between us—may be infinite (generation to generation). I am a co-collaborator with family members in a process of creating and transforming meaning from problem talk to exploring alternative possibilities. I work with individuals, families, and couples to better enhance family issues. I have several years of experience including multiple ways to approach problems.

It is easy for family members to misinterpret each other’s signals for attachment and get caught in a negative cycle, where each one's behavior triggers insecurity and negative behaviors in the other. Using Emotionally Focused Family Therapy, I help family members understand how their emotions and behaviors are affecting their relationships with each other. When family members learn to communicate their deeper fears and needs, they are able to change negative patterns of interaction and achieve greater connection.
