We all face challenges in our lives. Sometimes we get through them easily and sometimes we get stuck. Sometimes the thoughts of past challenges stick with us and influence our day-to-day activities. I believe it can be helpful to talk to gain clarity and decide how you want to move forward. I see my role as being a supportive, non-judgmental, safe place to explore your concerns. Everyone's needs are different, but I can help you make plans for changes in your behaviors or to find a new way of thinking about difficulties. You decide what goals you would like to accomplish.

By being present and real with you - all of you - and your full range of strengths and challenges, we work together towards healing and growth.

Whether struggling with individual troubles, relationship concerns or matters related to children or family, it can be hardest to talk to others when we need guidance the most. But no matter how daunting your situation, there are always possibilities. Therapy is a collaborative relationship that provides a safe place to discover new perspectives and tools to move you in the direction you want to go.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Madison using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
