The questions of who am I, where am I going and what does it all mean can produce many challenges for each of us. I try to see the world through the eyes of the clients I work with to develop an action plan to identify goals, solutions and adjustments to help guide the transition of change. I help client’s in a collaborative approach to develop an understanding of self-empowerment and self-efficacy to form a foundation from which to grow. My work with clients involves traditional individual, family , group and couple counseling modalities as well as practical real life applications in a life-coaching setting.

For those clients seeking services for their children, additional support is offered for the parenting process, family dynamics, and school functioning.
Searching for the right therapist is an important step in an individual's growth and transformation process. Often, my clients initially arrive in my office exhausted from "doing it alone" or "toughing it out". From our very first session, I support my clients and commit to traveling with them on their Life's journey. Together we will gently peel back the layers of anxious struggle, dysfunctional behaviors, and pain. We seek the roots of these problems and focus our treatment on healing what lies beneath them. As healing happens, I mentor my clients to reclaim areas of their life that have been lost.

During the course of therapy, I offer an accepting environment that opens possibilities for noticing patterns of daily functioning that are not working or are limiting potential.

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.
