Beginning the journey of self-discovery and healing can be difficult. You may be struggling with a difficult family dynamic, needing support around a sudden loss, or wishing to improve the quality of your relationships. Facing this is truly an act of courage. Individuals have innate qualities and inner strengths that, when nurtured, can help in overcoming these hardships. I provide a safe and supportive environment where you can freely express yourself without judgement.

As a caring & experienced psychotherapist, I listen carefully & respond honestly in person or by phone, FaceTime, zoom, Skype. Parental neglect or abuse leaves us with low self esteem, unresolved hurts & insufficient coping skills. Self criticism leads to painful and negative beliefs that cause depression and anxiety. We begin with the formative events in your life & your current issues. By drawing on family systems & psychodynamic principles, I use the latest interpersonal, cognitive & behavioral techniques with an informal and collaborative therapeutic approach that leads you toward greater self understanding & positive steps.

Family Therapy

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.
