I also specialized in treating anxiety due to multicultural issues (loss of identity, career issues, & dysfunctional family dynamics).
We all go through emotional storms where we feel emotionally and physically stuck; we worry too much and lose control of ourselves. Do you find yourself thrown off balance by your childhood trauma? Childhood traumatic experiences such as abandonment, abuse, and neglect lead to social anxiety. My approach is solution-focused and tailored to your needs and goals. I am committed to providing a profound sense of safety and offering compassionate and actionable guidance to all my clients.

I am trained in EMDR as well as a first responder and first responder family therapist .
I believe that in order for an individual to truly make progress in therapy, they must have a safe and comfortable space to do so. Finding a therapist who is a good match is as important as the work you do in session. I offer a comfortable environment and a non-judgmental listening ear. Using humor in the healing process is just as important as empathy and understanding. I believe the journey of therapy is to be done as a team. As a therapist, it is my main goal to support and encourage my clients as well as ask thought provoking and insightful questions. I would love to support you on your journey, I know it’s not easy alone.

I offer an open-minded, easy-going, and supportive approach to help you navigate through life's stressors and find purpose in your life.

for 4 years; & I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist , I’ve worked with Psychoanalyst Kristi Walsh, Ph.
"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." ~ Carl Jung. Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

Relationships are complex & it may be time to explore how you’ve been impacted by past unhealthy relationships. You may feel as if you’re not enough, a bother or annoyance to your family or others. Often seeking acceptance from the others even though you know it may not happen. The struggle one has towards being accepted by family /others in order to feel as if you are good enough can often feel unbearable or never ending. Survivors of past damaged relations can make one feel as if you have no worth or value & leave you struggling to identify your worth & seek approval from others. You are not alone in these thoughts & feelings.

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.
