Families are helped in harmonizing relationships and overcoming conflict.
Daphne has undergone extensive training in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and applies methods derived from dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and mindfulness. In Couple Therapy she was trained in emotionally-focused therapy (EFT), the Gottman method, Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT) and legal advocacy.
