Choosing a therapist can sometimes feel daunting and overwhelming—it is certainly a courageous and vulnerable act! That is why I do my best to create an experience for my clients that is warm, welcoming, authentic, and trusting. Part of why I decided to become a therapist is because I highly value the relationships in my life, including the relationships I form with the people I work with in therapy. While relationships can sometimes be sources of immense distress, pain, confusion, and loneliness, I also believe that when they are healthy and safe, they have the ability to soothe, comfort, and generate powerful change.

I use emotionally-focused therapy (EFT) with individuals, couples and families to create stronger bonds between family members.
Do you sometimes feel alone in the world? Do you sometimes wonder "is this all there is?" Do you often wonder if everyone else has some sort of secret knowledge, that if only you had, would make your life better? Many of us feel these things at one time or another in our lives and sometimes we get "stuck" and feel unable to move forward. I will walk with you and help you understand where these issues come from and what you can do to feel better.

I am passionate about healing trauma with the power of human connection while also utilizing evidence-based approaches, such as, EMDR, CBT, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, and Functional Family Therapy .
Stepping out of your comfort zone can be a difficult experience. In order to grow we must take that leap. My role is to join individuals taking those risks and create a safe place to explore the possibilities. My approach can help people develop new insights into themselves by healing trauma and recognizing their inherent strengths. Using their own strengths people grow confidence to be their true self.

Before pursuing a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy , I worked at a non-profit for three years as a personal care aide and in the case management of individuals with developmental disabilities. The populations I served ranged from 12 to 76-year-olds diagnosed with various developmental disabilities and psychiatric disorders. This experience changed my life and perspective. I left this with the understanding that no behavior or reaction occurs within a vacuum. Strong social support networks, personal agency, and resources are critical to personal growth.

I am an art therapist, often inviting my clients to drop into their body in order to move further from the busy mind. I believe that growth comes from the commitment to the therapeutic process. In family work I specialize in high-conflict divorce and co-parenting. My focus is on helping parents support their children best in the process of divorce and post divorce reality.

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to help others. Active listening, being empathetic, and showing compassion for others during tough times has always come naturally to me. I strive to bring these natural strengths, as well as the tools I have learned throughout my time as a student, to give the best possible care to each of my clients/families/couples. I believe that a client should be able to leave each therapy session with a greater understanding and self-awareness of how they can navigate through their lives.

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.
