My extensive background working with children, adolescents and their families allows me to assist in decreasing relational discord and improve family cohesiveness.
It's not what you thought it would be, and that's okay. Life transitions are hard. As much as we try to prepare ourselves, we can never be fully prepared. However, we can work together to help you embrace the changes and learn to navigate life with a new fresh perspective. And who knows, you might just find that the changes or life transitions you experienced, creates a better version of yourself. I am a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional. I also have an extensive background working with children, adolescents and young adults.

I focus on the origins of compulsive behaviors/addictions and the anxiety,depression,low-self worth that goes along with these issues and the impact they have on the individual and family members to help re-build healthy relationships with themselves and each other.
I understand recovery in these areas and how it is easy to say "I'll deal with these later" only to find out when you do deal with them they were not as overwhelming as you thought! Fear is a major factor in getting help and shared by many others who have found solutions to their life by facing this fear of HOW DO I CHANGE and IS IT POSSIBLE? Of course it is- we all know someone who have changed their lives for the better.

My job is to see the world through your eyes, understand as much as I can what is happening to you. I test for symptoms. We find a baseline to get an accurate measure of what you are feeling or experiencing. Once I get that, we move to the next step of deciding together which problem to work on, and we create a priority of problems to address if there is more than one. We work as a team.

I believe that therapy is a sacred space where a client and therapist encounter to make transformative changes as a team. My indescribable joy as a therapist is to witness my clients rise from the misery of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, parenting issues, and troubled relationships. These are my specialties guided by a principle that St. Irenaeus best describes, “a human fully alive is the glory of God.” I help clients connect with their inner potential and resources and build effective coping strategies specific to the personality, lifestyle, and predicament.

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.
