The Unique Field of Marriage and Family Therapy:


My specific niche in counseling has been the treatment of couples and families, particularly who are dealing with challenging children.  Over the last few years, I’ve researched and developed a distinct approach to help struggling families.  The field of Marriage and Family Therapy in general, takes a nonjudgmental, nonthreatening approach when working with clients.  It is not about diagnosing and focusing on who’s to blame, but rather to think in terms of how we can help our clients process and improve relationships.  I too believe that every person is made up of so many different experiences and personality traits, that it’s only natural to run into some challenges and hard times with the people closest to you.  The ability to focus on the process rather than content of the situation and assistance to the client in putting the pieces of the underlying puzzle together is my expertise and has been very effective in creating change.

"I never believed my daughter’s anxiety had anything to do with me.  I think until I worked with Shifi, I thought all kids are just nervous about everything and it was my job to tell them ‘not to worry!’ No wonder the anxiety didn’t go away!! It was getting so out of control, that by the time I saw Shifi, I thought there was no way she can help.  It was amazing that not only did she help manage the anxiety, but how quickly our patterns were reversed.  My husband and I are forever grateful."
