“While working with you I draw primarily on a counseling approach that views the problems presented within the context of the family and social environment. I use structural and strategic family therapy methods as well as working with family of origin issues. We will be talking about the patterns in your life and working to change those that are painful and unfulfilling to you. My goal is to support you in creating new, more joyful interactions with the world around you.” – Lori Homes
