Creating possibilities through collaborative conversation

 

Since 1988 I have specialized in creating collaborative conversations with clients that generate new possibilities for change.  Using a postmodern approach, I listen carefully to each client's story and strive to understand how they might make meaning of themselves, others, and the world around them. I also enjoy writing, training other professionals, and speaking to audiences about love, dating, and relationships.

PSYCHOTHERAPY

 

I work with clients on a range of topics - including depression and anxiety, social and relational problems, grief and loss, addictions, stress, anger, barriers to self-acceptance, sexual orientation, gender identity, family and parenting. I see individual clients, many couples, and facilitate two therapy groups.

PRESENTATIONS

 

I founded the Contemporary Relationships Conference and have presented to audiences around the country, including the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapy,  the American Family Therapy Academy, the American Counseling Association, and the Texas Psychological Association.

PUBLICATIONS

 

I co-authored chapters in two counseling textbooks and wrote a children's book about adoption, deaf culture, and non-traditional families.  I have also been a contributing writer at Bilerico and Therapy Matters.
