I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT),
Certified Relational Life Therapist (RLT),
ADHD Relationship & Marriage Specialist
Health Educator and Wellness Advocate
Relationship is both art and science. The brain and mind work together and impact relational well-being and optimal health. Dan Siegel, MD, named this scientific process "Interpersonal Neurobiology". "Relational Life Therapy", developed by Terry Real, grows healthy personal and relational connections in the brain, heart and everyday life.
Attentional differences in time, finances and spatial orientation can create distance in any relationship. Bridging this gap is attentional education, training and therapy. I am a Specialist in ADHD and its effects on marriage. You can learn how to focus, communicate effectively, develop healthy boundaries and enjoy positive connection.
Meditation & Mindfulness have been my daily teachers and companions since 1972. About 30 years ago, the rheumatoid arthritis that limited my physical and figurative movement, since I was a teen, released its grip. The many integrative teachers (see Links for specifics) that I have worked with during the past 30 plus years; helped me find the courage to change and the ability to meet life with compassion and right action. Meditation, energy awareness, loving kindness and mindful living are some of the keys that unlock the door of limitations and build healthy boundaries.
The importance and power of a healthy mind-body connection continues to amaze me and teach me. My experience as patient and care partner motivates me to help individuals, couples and families meet health challenges with respect, dignity, clarity, compassion, communication, user friendly resources and daily practices that support wellness.
