Theory Guided Practice
My clinical practice is guided by Bowen family systems theory. Family systems theory sees the family as an emotional unit with individual family members emotionally interdependent and part of a broader relationship system. The years of developing and relating in a unique family context go toward shaping how individuals ultimately come to function and relate with important others.

My Clinical Practice
Individuals often struggle with stressful and challenging circumstances in their personal and/or professional lives. These problems can involve relationship difficulties accompanied with considerable anxiety. The focus of clinical work is to more clearly define the problem, consider ways to reduce the level of stress and identify more useful ways of relating with important others.
