Wonder provides therapeutic support services for pre-teens, adolescents, young adults and their families by combining individual and parent coaching with family therapy . We understand that life’s stressors and struggles happen outside of the traditional therapy office setting, and that’s why we get out of the office and get into the community. We are committed to helping families discover the potential in all of their relationships while helping adolescents and young adults reach their goals in the areas of school, vocation, personal growth and community engagement.

I believe that there is great power in developing a deeper understanding of who you are, your strengths and weakness, and how your brain functions and adapts-and applying this information to develop ways to manage and communicate your emotions and needs to the important people in your life. I have been working with kids, teens, adults and families for the last 15 years, and find it very meaningful and rewarding. I specialize in anxiety, depression, attachment and neurodevelopmental disorders, using cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, solution-oriented and family systems based approaches.

I also offer family constellations, EMDR, art & play therapy.
You are unique, and have something valuable to express, offer, and live. We suffer when we feel cut off from this, when the circumstances and experiences of life do not reflect our deepest knowing of self. Depression, anxiety; feeling stuck, lost, dissatisfied with life.. addiction, unhealthy relationships, illness, loss.... These are all opportunities to learn to love oneself more fully; invitations to transform and heal. I help people restore clarity, connection, love, and get to the root of what blocks their full aliveness.

I use an Internal Family Systems approach that has been proven to show lasting results.
Do you feel overwhelmed? Does your temper often feel short? Do you worry too much? Does it feel like there's too much on your plate? If you said yes to any of the questions, you're not alone. Higher than normal levels of anxiety throughout the US are impacting people on a daily level. Therapy is a very effective treatment for anxiety. Our brains are able to create new ways of thinking but only by putting some effort in to address parts that are feeling overburdened with anxiety. By doing this, we can step into more fulfilling relationships with our selves, friends, partners, and children.

I draw from my training in somatic therapy, Internal Family Systems (aka parts work), and my holistic roots as a teacher of yoga, meditation, and reiki to meet the whole you, from a place of compassion, honesty, and open-minded support.
Life's challenges can be difficult to navigate on your own. Whether you are affected by current or past traumatic events, relationship issues, feeling stuck, lost, anxious, depressed, or just seeking to further your personal growth, talking with someone who can act as a mirror can help. Therapy is not only a valuable tool to support you through the hardest times -- counseling can also help you identify your strengths and tap into inner wisdom for lasting, organic healing in all phases of life! Our sessions will be tailored to your needs, and can adapt as your goals evolve.

Together, we will work with the wisdom of the body and the mind through mindfulness, neurobiology, grief-work, self-compassion training, and internal family systems.
Accepting new clients Jan 2023. I work with people who have experienced trauma, attachment wounds, low self-worth, perfectionism, stress, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, or problems feeling present. You might struggle with boundaries, enjoying spending time on hobbies, or negative self-talk. Maybe you use food, alcohol, cannabis, exercise, or Netflix as a way to escape the present moment. You crave closeness with others, but also fear it. I understand that you want a safe space to explore creating a more meaningful life at your own pace.

As a certified marriage and family therapist and relationship coach focusing on women empowerment whether they seek individual or couples therapy. My clients are successful, intelligent, conscientious women who hold themselves to high standards. Intimate relationship is challenging. It's tough to get through the week without hurt feelings, upsets, or disagreement. They want to make things work. It feels like nothing ever changes. They feel powerless, unhappy, and unfulfilled. I can help even if their partner is not on board.

However isolated they appear, I hold a strong belief that young adult emotional and behavioral struggles are primarily a reaction to family influences. To fully support this population in reaching their potential, their challenges will need to be looked upon in the context of family , so to identify how such strife continues to be reinforced. This systemic approach to therapy paves the way for greatest insight to be gained by those who really matter, allowing for symptom reduction and ultimately greater relational harmony.

Whether it's your relationship with your kids, your partner, or family .
Relationships are what make life richer, kinder, and more fun. When those aren't working well, life can be really tough, either because we don't have the relationships we want, or those we have aren't working... Loneliness, people-pleasing, social anxiety, or fear of rejection... arguments, lack of connection, or constant conflict... all these can make relationships really, really hard. It all comes down to our relationship with... ourselves. When we know, love, and care for ourselves, our relationships start to change, from the inside out.

In my work with teens and adults I utilize an Internal Family Systems Model with a present-focused relational lens.
I feel passionately about working with the range of human experience. In working with children I feel that parent involvement is crucial for the success of therapy. I'm aware that parenting is extremely difficult and I aspire to support parents in that. I enjoy working with parents who are open to working on the way that their own struggles impact their ability to parent compassionately and effectively. Many of the teens and adults I work with are looking to heal from developmental trauma. Symptoms which stem from childhood trauma can present in numerous ways such as: depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, etc.

I believe mental health is about living in the present, healing the past and identifying and moving towards a whole life. Many of the clients I see are facing a dilemna of some sort; a potential marriage, divorce, re-marriage, change in career, a family member dying, or a current trauma, or a past trauma that has re-surfaced. I also treat infidelity including pornography usage interfering with intimacy. I have written the book Letters To A Sex Addict: The Journey Through Grief and Betrayal. This book is powerful for anyone experiencing infidelity and is great with raising empathy for someone who has strayed.

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.
