As I watched individuals, couples and families learn to live with emotions that seemed to contradict each other, my interest in how to help them in their struggle with these universal tensions continued to increase. The emotional polarities that disable families became the focus of my work and graduate study. Since that time, I have aimed to equip myself with a range of approaches that allow me to provide the most effective therapy for individuals, couples and families.

In addition to my formal education as an RN, my Master's level education in Clinical Psychology and my Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy, I have been privileged to receive excellent ongoing professional training with the leaders in our field. I began my intensive work in marriage and family therapy with an internship with Jay Haley, one of the founders of Family Therapy. My increasing interest in couples therapy led me to conduct my doctoral research on resilience and to train in the models that have proven most effective: John Gottman's Marital Therapy and Susan Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). The end result has been an integration of theories that I believe optimizes my effectiveness in working with individuals, couples and families.

As an adjunct professor at the Northern Virginia Campus of Virginia Tech, I taught couples therapy to graduate level students. I have been an AAMFT Clinical Member since 1981 and a clinical supervisor since 1989.
