"You're desperate to feel happy, but the voice inside your head keeps saying you don't deserve it. Bad things have happened to you and you feel hopeless and empty inside. You're confused and overwhelmed by worries, you can't sleep, you're irritable and your relationships are suffering, You've pulled back from friends and family because life just feels too hard and nobody seems to understand. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but it feels like it's never enough. You feel intolerably alone, you wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. "

"I help people get unstuck and recoup a sense of personal competency. I work with people who may be very angry and disappointed, but want nothing more than to feel peaceful. I work with people who are unhappy and want to change their lives with the least amount of conflict possible. I teach people how to balance their rights with the rights of others while maintaining their personal warmth and sense of humor. We determine what is working and what is not working for them. I help people add skills that help communicate their truth effectively, clearly and compassionately. Many people benefit from learning new resiliency skills."

I’ve been counseling children, teens, adults, couples, and families for over 18 years - But in my experience, that’s not really what you want to know. What you really want to know is can I help you? And is there hope for things to change for you? As a matter of fact, there is and I hope you’ll give me an opportunity to take that journey towards healing and empowerment with you. You see traumas; whether they are big or small, cause people to lose hope in themselves and in others. I believe that with your desire to change, and my skills, and knowledge, we can turn things around and help you feel better. Whether you are dealing with betrayal, childhood, or sexual trauma, sexual addiction, trauma from war, or dealing with bipolar, depression, anxiety, PTSD, dissociation, addictions, adoption, lack of self-confidence, and/or marital issues. There’s very little you can bring to my door that I haven’t seen and I’m ready and willing to fight the fight alongside you.

"“Has my life been worthwhile?” "Has my life had purpose?" These are common questions I am asked by seriously-ill patients who seek unconditional love and empathic validation that they have indeed made an impact on the lives of others close to them and on society as a whole. Facilitating a life review — looking at photographs, watching films, or listening to music — allows my clients to meaningfully reminisce about the most transformative events and relationships throughout their lives. Together, we discover legacies, meaning, and important spiritual lessons, and we explore topics of afterlife, God, and transcendence."

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in 49684 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
