I have examined domestic violence and marital distress from a wider perspective that encapsulates not only interventions at the therapeutic level, but also broad-based interventions aimed at a revision that includes many contemporary multicultural issues. I believe that there are numerous risk factors that serve as perpetrators of aggression in couple relationships including: (a) relationship distress, (b) the escalation of negative behavioral couple communication, (c) maladaptive behavioral responses in conflict situations, (d) deficits in couple conflict resolution skills, (e) aberrant cognitive functioning leading to heightened risk factors and (f) negative multicultural influences based on embedded warped beliefs, values and cultural norms (Gurman et al., 2015).

God didn't call a woman to be under the foot of a man. Christianity calls for us to experience relationships that are kind and loving, and that a man should love his spouse as "Christ loves the church."
I work extensively with both Clinical and Forensic populations, delivering targeted Behavioral, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral (DBT) Therapies tailored to the specific needs of each individual client. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults with Personality Disorders (Borderline, Narcissistic, Antisocial), Mood Disorders (Anxiety, Depression), Behavioral Disorders (Oppositionality, Anger), and Sexual Dysfunction. In addition, I treat sex offenders, individuals convicted of violent and non-violent criminal offenses, perpetrators of domestic violence, and other forensic populations. * In my capacity as a Psychological Evaluator, I conduct thorough diagnostic clarification of psychological symptoms in clients of all ages. These range from Sexual Disorders, to Developmental Disorders (Autism Spectrum, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity), Substance Use Disorders, Mood Disorders (Bipolar, Obsessive-Compulsive), and Personality Disorders. * In my Forensic Evaluation work, I conduct assessments upon referral from the Courts, private, state, and federal agencies, self-referrals, and attorneys. These Evaluations include: Fitness for Duty (FFD), Sex Offender Risk Assessments, Violence Risk Assessment, Psychosexual, Substance Abuse, Competency to Stand Trial, and Parenting, as well as Pre-Sentence Investigations, and various other forensic evaluations.
