Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My Marriage and Family therapy experience extends to twenty years in which I have worked with children, teachers, administrators, and parents in a school setting; I have worked with individuals, couples and families in private practice; and I have become a trained mediator in custody and divorce issues; landlord/renter issues, neighbor/neighbor issues, and parties who find themselves in conflict. In my practice, I try to find new and creative ways to resolve conflicts when traditional methods don't seem to work. I believe developing rapport with clients is important in developing trust in the therapy process. I am a good listener and am able to focus in on the issues which are causing difficulties. Clients are usually willing to change for the better when they understand what is causing a problem and can explore the options for improvement. I become part of their support system.
