Hello there! You’re here for a reason, and I’m glad that you are. Maybe you aren’t completely sure what that reason is. Maybe you’ve noticed that you’re more easily annoyed by those around you, or that the anxious or irritable parts of you have become more difficult to settle. Or perhaps your reason is more definable for you: maybe you’re considering making the brave move toward sobriety, or you’re ready to turn the page on some other chapter of your life. It can seem lately that we are living in a time full of uncertainty and constant change — changes in the world around us, our communities, our household and relationships.

I get it - you’re feeling pretty defeated right now. You’re sick of being told what to do and being treated like a baby by your parents. Everyone keeps talking about your “potential,” but between school, friends drama, and your family stuff, it feels like no one really understands you. Alcohol and weed used to help you feel better, but not anymore. You just haven't been yourself. And now your parents think you should try therapy. You just don't know if you want to open up to a stranger. You can’t see how it could possibly help. I hear you.

I believe therapy can be a catalyst for important changes we want to make in our lives. I work with adults who experience symptoms of anxiety or depression, trouble with life transitions, individuals struggling with relationships and those who just want to learn more about themselves while moving toward a more pleasurable and purposeful life. Many of my clients seek to enhance their sense of self by unpacking their experience of trauma in the context of varying identities, family structures, and/or immigration experiences. I also work with children and their families who have experienced stress, life disruptions and trauma.

Using a nonjudgmental collaborative approach to exploring the root of your anxiety, depression, self doubt, self blame, relationship struggles, or insecurities we can identify your emotional needs. Working together I provide room for you to move from being stuck in your thoughts, behavior or life towards clarity and confidence in making a change. I have worked with people experiencing vulnerability, unhealthy relationships, emotional eating, family conflict, loss, childhood trauma, and more.

Life is full of inevitable changes, some more difficult to navigate than others. If you are experiencing the anticipatory grief of losing a loved one, the loss of a beloved family member or friend, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, depression, couple and/or relationship issues, or you simply want to work on your personal growth, you have already taken the most important step by seeking help.

I believe that each of us has something to learn from our past; however, the first step toward becoming the best we can be is to look at and learn from our past, but not live there. Seeking therapy is a statement of strength and belief that you, your family , and your relationships are of significant value. Some people seek therapy when in crisis. Many others, who are already doing well in life, seek therapy to prompt improvement or provide objective feedback to help them move forward.

In addition to Marriage and Family therapy , I am trained in EMDR , IFS , and DBT; these approaches work well with various issues including anxiety, trauma/stress, impulsive behaviors, & mood disorders.
I have successfully worked with adults and children, couples and families, with both common and complex needs. My approach focuses on experiential awareness and processing, while working through present day thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is holistic in that it views symptoms as attempts at coping.We work together establishing a calm place within you, through the enhancement of personal awareness, resources, and developing coping strategies; we then progress beyond coping skills, moving through the roots of old learning so that your change is lasting, and from the inside out.

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.
