I am also a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in New York for bi-coastal clients.
Giving yourself a space dedicated to self-reflection is so helpful. I work with adolescents, often highly accomplished adults, and couples in my practice. I help clients meet their own goals by building a strong relationship, encouraging reflection, and exploring alternatives. I am warm, engaging, and well trained. In my work with clients, we look at the influence of a client's family-of-origin, their current stressors and challenges, and the relationship that unfold between the client and myself. I assist my clients to work through their challenges, so they have more choices to live a more authentic life.

I tailor my treatment to the specific needs of each client.

Results are achieved in a collaberative atmosphere of emotional safety, trust and unconditional acceptance that leads to understanding and healing. Changes brought about by this treatment are not meant to be temporary, but tend to be permanent. I work with adults, adolescents and couples who seek to resolve conflicts, stop repetitive dysfunctional patterns and develop deep emotional connections.

On the outside, things look great. You’ve become good at hiding how you really feel and putting on your “I-have-it-altogether” face. Inside, however, you’re feeling lost, out of touch and disconnected from yourself. Maybe your anxiety is causing you to lose sleep, or you find yourself isolating from friends and family because of depression. Maybe you're covering all of this up with drugs, alcohol or other risky behaviors. You’re not entirely sure how you got here but you know something needs to change. You deserve to feel reconnected, balanced, calm and happier. Let me help!

Additionally, I work with family members around issues of caregiver fatigue and chronic mental illness.
I offer teletherapy to clients in California, Nevada, Oregon and Colorado. I offer in-office visits in Sacramento. Sometimes we expect far too much from ourselves. Each client is invited into a space where there is no expectation and where they are free to be themselves, without fear of judgement or misunderstanding. Adults can sometimes struggle to find space to hold compassion for themselves. Couples (and all variants of relationship structure) can also use a nonjudgmental time and space to feel heard, while building tools for communication.

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.
