I am trained and licensed in Maine as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Whether I'm working with an individual, couple or family I view my client(s) as part of a greater family system. A family's patterns of behavior influences the individual and the individual then influences the family. Marriage and Family therapy can be helpful at resolving a wide variety of emotional, relational and psychological problems.
My work with Couples is informed by my education in Marriage and Family Therapy, my training and study of neuroscience, the work of Drs. John and Julie Gottman (Gottman Method,) Dr. Sue Johnson (Emotionally Focused Therapy,) Dr. Stan Tatkin (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy,) Dr. Shirley Glass (Not Just Friends) and others.
My training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy includes Level 1: Bridging the Couple Chasm A New Research-Based Approach and Level 2: Assessment, Intervention and Co-Morbidities. Their
Sound Relationship House complements my training in Marriage & Family Therapy, Solution-Oriented Therapy, and various Trauma Therapies well.
I am a past president of the Maine Division of the AAMFT. I served as the division president in 2011 - 2012. I worked toward "Educating Maine" about the MFT and the benefits of Marriage and Family Therapy. Additionally, I have and continue to serve at the national level of American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy on strategic planning committees of the Board of Directors. Here I am pictured making the "Opening Remarks" during the November 18, 2011 MEAMFT Maine Division Conference and Introduction to Gottman Method Therapy Workshop.
