I specialize in working with couples and individuals with relationship problems. I also conduct forensic evaluations for cases involving intimate partner violence. For the past 20 years, I have been a researcher studying marriage and domestic violence. Now I am applying this research to help couples and individuals with communication, sexual, or other problems by offering couples’ assessments, therapy and forensic evaluations. Having studied under Drs. John Gottman & Neil Jacobson, my scientifically-based couples therapy combines Gottman Couples Therapy and Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy. My approach is direct, short-term and effective.
I provide short-term, practical help for couples and individuals with relationshp problems. Also, I am certified as an expert in the areas of intimate partner violence by Texas courts. I provide objective evaluations for people involved in legal disputes regarding intimate partner abuse and Battered Woman Syndrome.
TWO SESSION APPROACH: At the University of Houston, we conduct the Couples Check-ups, an intensive feedback and assessment service. See www.psychology.uh.edu/couples.
LOW-FEE OPTION: We also conduct low fee therapy for individuals and couples; sliding-fee scale is based upon income. See http://www.uh.edu/class/psychology/clinics/ for more information.
