My practice involves teaching clients a variety of strategies to increase their problem solving skills. Emphasis is on short-term approaches to help individuals, couples, and families learn to have more enjoyable, satisfying, and productive lives. A significant portion of my practice involves working with individuals and couples with a wide variety of problems. Typical concerns or areas of conflict might include ineffective communication, finance, sex, in-laws, children, work, socialization, etc. 

I am very involved with conflict resolution techniques, especially mediation. At this time mediation is limited to divorce and family issues.
