I work with children, adolescents, and adults. It is my goal to work in partnership with you and the appropriate family and community members to consider all factors which may be influencing your mental health and well being. Together we will design a plan to support your own resilience and innate healing response. My philosophy is more pragmatic, than theoretical. The focus is not merely on the treatment of symptoms of the disorder, but on achieving health, and a renewed sense of purpose, meaning, and joy. I strive to provide responsive and effective assistance with compassion and respect.

I tailor my approach to a client’s presenting concerns and goals for therapy by integrating a variety of methods and theories, including strengths-based, play therapy, family systems, and attachment theory.
Therapy offers potential for healing and opportunity for growth, and I am passionate about supporting clients through this process. I work with individuals, couples, and families in a variety of practice areas including anxiety, depression, relational conflict, identity development, and life transitions. I believe that each person has a unique story and carries valuable potential that is waiting to be unlocked and refined. I guide clients toward developing the personal strength and balance needed to meet life’s challenges, and I empower clients to live authentic, purposeful, and connected lives. I help clients uncover patterns that they seek to change and work with them to find new, creative solutions for moving forward to achieve their goals. As a former educator, I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents. I understand the challenges that both children and parents face in today’s world and how these affect family dynamics. Since relational interactions are important to mental and emotional health, I work with clients on developing positive communication skills in order to experience more fulfilling and harmonious relationships in all areas of life.

Life is stressful. Often times we live our lives in chains, we struggle with our fears, hopes and dreams. Fear is an inevitable challenge we face, particularly when it is unexpected. Sometimes, these challenges may become overwhelming and can affect us physically and mentally. Before we know it, we may start engaging in unhealthy coping behavior by turning to drugs drinking, or food, isolating from others, or acting out aggressively. It is time to find a solution rather than just temporary relief.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Lafayette 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.
