“I believe good relationships are the key to a satisfying life. Early on I decided I wanted to focus on this for my life’s work and have spent my professional career working with individuals and families in a variety of settings. As a result, and in combination with personal life events, I have come to appreciate the importance and the complexity of being in good relationship with self and others. I also have seen how our committed relationships can be a path to wholeness.”
