I am an "unsticker". We all make decisions about how to get reward and avoid punishment from very little on, first in our immediate family and then the larger community as our world expands. Most of these decisions hold us in good stead through our lives. But as we grow up, we sometimes find that our decisions, our way of thinking, feeling, and doing, don't work, don't fit our current reality. We become stuck.
I work quickly and actively. my total cost may be less than others' because of my ability to focus, set goals, and work quickly. Every session should be of help. My goal--to make a positive difference each session so that my patients use the therapy in the real world.
Indeed, I have surveyed 10 years of patients to see if the therapy held up over time. for The majority of patients felt the changes they made with my help were beneficial and lasting.
Couples who are sitting on the fence between commitment and divorce don't see themselves as candidates for couple therapy or divorce can find here therapy directed specifically at discerning which path to take-continuing as is, divorcing or committing to couple therapy. I have special training in such therapy called "Discernment Counseling".
Another aspect of my practice is active participation in San Antonio Collaborative Divorce Assoc. Collaborative Divorce is a non-adversarial divorce process in which the couple, their attorneys, a financial professional and a mental health professional collaborate in finding the divison of peoperty and child responsibilities that works best for the divorcing family.
