As a trained couples' and family therapist, I use a systemic approach with my clients which emphasizes the development and maintenance of healthy relationships and communication. Evidence-based practices such as cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapies are examples of the theoretical orientations from which I work. I believe wholeheartedly that change comes from a blend of internal and external factors with a team approach between the therapist and client(s). My philosophy is not to "fix" people, but rather serve as a partner to support my clients toward defining and reaching their expressed personal values and goals.

We are all influenced by a variety of factors: our family histories, our unique life experiences, and the social context in which we live.
Finding the right therapist for you is a primary factor in whether or not your therapy will be successful. I believe in creating a relaxed, non-judgmental atmosphere where people feel safe to explore painful feelings and negative thoughts/behaviors. My approach includes a balance of support and challenge. My goal is to bring warmth, humor, and an interactive style to our sessions. I do not believe in "one size fits all," and therefore, I strive to create an experience that is unique to you based on your individual needs and goals for therapy. My work is grounded in current research/education on mental health and well-being.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) modality helps clients gain deep understanding the experiences that have shaped them and how they inform the ways we respond to particular stressors.
Life without struggle would be pretty boring, but too much can keep people from experiencing the life they want. My entire career has been focused helping adolescents, families, and adults understand patterns that get in the way of joy and connection. We come to believe that those patterns are who we are. But they are not. They are just how our childhoods, traumas, and experiences have shaped us. It's not easy reshaping how we think about ourselves and others. Meaningful therapy is hard. I don't do therapy to teach new skills. I want my clients to heal in ways that reshape how they see themselves and the world.

Teens need space to share their thoughts and to be heard by someone outside of the family.
Being a teen-ager is SUPER hard. Being their parent can be even harder. There are times when you struggle to comprehend where your child is coming from and have no idea what they are dealing with. Perhaps you tried communicating with your child and all you receive is 'I don't want to talk about it' or 'I'm fine.' Maybe you feel you are living with a stranger and worry that your child's behavior is hard to understand, secretive or dangerous? Technology hasn't even been mentioned yet! Living in an environment like this can challenge the family system.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Asheville or for an Asheville family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Asheville using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

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.
