marital conflict or family stressors), or even more spiritual or existential.
If you're looking for a therapist who's done every training there is, in a wide variety of therapeutic styles, and can claim to support pretty much any client with pretty much any need at an expert level - this is not me. But what I AM really good at is building a positive, nonjudgmental, and collaborative relationship. You can trust that I'll be using the expertise and training I have acquired through my decade-plus career to support you as you seek to cope with the issues at hand and ultimately continue to grow into a resilient, hope-filled person (or couple!).

From my training in marriage and family therapy I also bring a deep understanding of how relationships can impact our lives from childhood into adulthood.
I'm typically relaxed and conversational and love having conversations that get to the heart of the matter. You could say I specialize in getting people "unstuck" from their current way of thinking about and dealing with issues, through the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) skills and strategies. I love asking thoughtful questions and re-framing your situation so you can approach it in ways you haven't considered before. We then create a practical plan that gets to the root of issues and ensures you have what you need to succeed.

I take a w/holistic, trauma-informed approach that is grounded in evidence based best practices such as psychodynamic therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
You value being calm, taking care of yourself, and being attentive to the needs of others. And yet, in this moment, you feel overwhelmed, anxious, emotionally neglected and on the verge of burning out. You’ve spent too much time putting the needs of others first, and disregarding your emotional, physical, and mental health. You realize now that you have suffered enough. You have a strong desire to pursue change in your life, to address the patterns that get you stuck.

Whether a child is dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, family separation or divorce, or difficulty regulating emotions, Play Therapy helps children learn new tools and develop resilience they can easily transfer into their day to day lives.
Childhood is often thought of as a magical time. The reality is that many kids face problems that leave them feeling worried, scared, angry, sad or confused. This can be difficult and heart breaking for parents trying their best to connect with and support their child. Very often, despite a caregiver’s best effort to learn more and help solve the problem, a child’s response is “I don’t know”. Play therapy can help provide children with the tools they need to express their thoughts and explore their inner world.

I believe every individual, couple, and family are unique; not one person is the same as another.
Life is difficult enough, but relationships that aren't "working" can cause even greater difficulties, feelings of helplessness and hopelessness of feeling trapped. Relationships are difficult if you don't know the rules! As a psychotherapist with over 20 yrs experience walking with individuals, couples, and families through the turbulent times in life, I have been able to help many relationships to heal and be healthier. Sometimes all a person needs is a different way of seeing what is before them, which allows them to deal with an issue(s) that once blocked them from the relationships they desired.

I see people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, addictions, adjustment to change in their lives, relationship or family conflict, or the residual pain left from difficult childhoods or painful life events. My way of working as a therapist is to get to know you: your hopes, your talents, your problems and your unique way of thinking and expressing yourself. We then proceed with treatment based on who you are and what you need. The aim is to allow coping with your weaknesses to help you uncover your strengths, and your way forward.

There are times in life, especially when we are feeling most vulnerable, that we need a safe, unbiased, non-judgmental person to share our thoughts, feelings, and experiences with. We need a friendly person who accepts us unconditionally and whose primary concern is our well-being. Though friends and family are great, what may be mosted needed is the ability to talk with someone who is totally in your corner, with no adgenda other than to hear you, who will help you figure out what is best for you, and support you as you move towards your desired goals. My primary purpose as a therapist is to be that person for you.

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
