Divorce is one of the most stressful events a person or family will experience in their lifetime, and reaching out for support is a brave step! Visit my website or schedule an intake call and I'd love to learn how I can support your and your family .
I help kids, teens, and families experiencing divorce create a fulfilling “new normal” by moving from stuck and overwhelmed to thriving and free. I know that you are more than a person going through a divorce. It is overwhelming to ensure your kids are supported, especially while you are learning what it means to be a single parent, navigating the impossible waters of being a healthy co-parent, adjusting to the new financial realities, and not to mention dealing with your own heartbreak.

I have a gentle yet direct approach to therapy, incorporating my training/experience in family systems, humanistic and psychodynamic orientations.
Is it easier for you to give than to receive? Are you a nurse, therapist, teacher, or in another "helping profession"? Are you tired of struggling with the daily life grind, while longing for a rich and vibrant life? Do you wonder why you often feel so depleted, while others are enjoying life? Are you in a relationship but are struggling with the same issues and can't find your way to a better way of relating? You are not alone! You deserve to be happy and fulfilled. You can heal and learn new ways of living! I hold the space in which a full and rewarding life is possible for you, even if you cannot yet imagine it for yourself.

However, with the right support this can be an incredibly interesting and exciting time in their lives! I have helped many youth and families find their way and even thrive during this period. Many teens struggle with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, anger-management, family conflict, and traumatic experiences. I focus on improving emotional well-being, enhancing communication with peers and family , and making good decisions regarding relationships and personal safety.

I draw on family systems theory, CBT, humanistic psychology, Buddhist mindfulness, nutritional psychology, and trauma work including EMDR, and the body-mind connection found in EFT (tapping).
Proactive counseling for body, mind and spirit! With more than 30 years of experience, I combine a range of modalities in a supportive counseling atmosphere that combines elements of life coaching with deeper reworking of old patterns that no longer serve. I am a highly interactive therapist, who will give direct but caring feedback about changes you may wish to make in your life and obstacles standing in your way. I believe that one key to success is breaking behavioral change into bite-sized, manageable increments so the client is not overwhelmed and has the opportunity to enjoy consistent success.

Whatever your creation, whether it embarking on a new journey, nurturing a family , or conventional art forms, we will play at bringing it to life with imagination and hope.
Finding the right therapist is so important! Over and over studies show that you feeling understood by your therapist is the best indicator for how well you will do in therapy. It is important that you feel like your therapist 'gets' you, that you have a safe place to be fully you, and that you feel like you and your therapist are working together to help you feel fully alive.

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.
