We met while pursuing our graduate studies and immediately connected. We held weekly peer supervision meetings to discuss our therapy work, which quickly revealed a unique relationship of trust, empathy, and communication style. We knew right away that we would ultimately work together.
In each other we have discovered a rare dynamic that has fostered significant change: in ourselves, our relationships, and our work. We are not surprised that our 3VIEW clients see the same significant impact. We attribute this effectiveness to the respectful, collaborative, relationship-focused, and change-driven nature of our three perspectives. Simply put, working together brings out the best in each other, and our clients.
For more than a decade we have worked together and learned from one another. In particular we share an interest in relationships, couples therapy, and attachment theory. Individually and together we are influenced by and have trained with the world’s leading experts in these fields: Drs. Julie and John Gottman, Dr. Sue Johnson, Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. Janina Fisher, Dr. Stephen Porges, Dr. Stan Tatkin, Dr. John Briere, and Dr. Les Greenberg.
