Clients seek help in a variety of areas such as career, personal, family , relationships and marital conflict.
Oftentimes people believe that therapy is complicated and/or long term, but it does not always have to be. I believe in solution-oriented therapy which helps my clients obtain insight and clarity so that they are able to move beyond the areas that are keeping them "stuck". I take an active and direct approach to helping my clients develop a true sense of self so that they can live happier and more fulfilled lives.

I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist . I believe the main goal of therapy is healing, change, and growth; not criticism and condemnation. Therapy is most effective in an accepting, confidential atmosphere where there is mutual exploration of the issues and challenges of life in our complex world. Perhaps we need a new perspective in our way of thinking and our way of behaving in order to more effectively make our way through life's obstacles. Effective therapy is both educational and introspective. I offers faith/Christian based counseling upon request.

Most of my clients are seeking change. They want to feel better about themselves, about love and family relationships, friendships, work, and life in general. We can't change what we do not see. So that is where I start, with awareness. My first question is always: "What do you notice?" That is where we begin. Then, "What do you want?". And if not knowing what you want is the thing you most want to change, your journey will begin right there.

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.
