I have come to believe that conflict is not only inevitable, but often an essential catalyst for change and growth. How we understand and manage conflict, however, will dictate whether it leads to combat or, alternatively, to learning new and healthier ways to conduct our relationships.
I have devoted my psychotherapy practice to helping people rethink, improve and repair their intimate, personal and work relationships. In this work, my focus is on my clients’ strengths, their capacity to change and grow, and — with the appropriate support — to discover their own solutions and direction.
