She is a trained administrator for both the Pre-pare/Enrich and Gottman couples reboot. In addition to relational counseling, Dominique also believes in assisting families in creating cohesion in the home. “Each member is affected by the other. What one person does or does not do affects the entire family unit. Each member must actively open themselves up to vulnerability, to being loved, to being told the truth, to being apart, to actually belonging. This is family.” Dominique is trained in Parenting with love and Logic which assist parents in a non-argumentative style of parenting that has proven to be affective throughout the years. Her age range of counseling is (5 years +) as Dominique is passionate about the health of the entire family unit.

Whatever the difficulty, Dominique believes that healing is much easier with someone by your side.
