On a more personal note…

I feel very lucky to have discovered the Imago approach early in my career.  My passion for this work has led me to obtain the highest levels of training possible, and to be involved for many years with the Imago Faculty, and the worldwide community of Imago therapists.  My experience is that we can all use help in our intimate relationships—that there is nothing in life more important than our relationships with our partner, children, and our community.  I do believe that there are some simple, universal truths that make any relationship work:  We need to be more loving, caring, and compassionate, and less selfish, critical and negative.  If only it were that easy!  So while I see my basic task as simply helping couples to be more loving and caring—I know it takes certain skills and understanding to get there.  I hope that I am helping couples achieve that, and would be happy to have the chance to work with you, if this seems like a good fit.
