Are you tired of making attempts to improve the quality of your personal, family, or your kids' lives without getting the results you want? Many of us feel stuck at some point in our lives. Sudden life changes, challenging relationships, children, stressful jobs often make us feel emotionally vulnerable and helpless. This affects our ability to problem-solve and make decisions. Children and Adolescents also experience similar challenges as their high social, academic, and family expectations often trigger feelings of inadequacy, often leading to low self-esteem, anger, anxiety, and sadness.

I am certified in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) and have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), both effective research-based models for working with individuals and couples.
Life is filled with crossroads-marriage, divorce, a new baby, an empty nest, a boomerang child. Even the most joyful ones can be challenging and at times we find we could use some support. In my practice I work to help you tap into the strengths that are within you and find your voice - your creativity, courage and compassion - so you can make healthy choices for yourself and your relationships. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families and consider it a privilege to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to help you rediscover hope and work toward your goals.

My clients are often smart, skilled, and talented, but lack the energy, focus, drive, or executive functioning skills (like planning and organization) to reach their full potential. Not realizing their potential--or all of the potentials in all areas--creates great pain itself.

Because my practice includes working with children, I offer strong support for parents and families who are affected by what a child is experiencing. My approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused, meaning that we will look at the interplay among thoughts, feelings and behaviors to explore how negative thought patterns influence behavior and work to change those patterns to provide emotional relief. I help clients develop real-life skills and coping strategies that can last a lifetime.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in 20170 view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
