I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Florida and Colorado and an ACSM certified exercise physiologist.
Mental health conditions that I specialize in treating include major depression, generalized and performance-related anxiety, bipolar, adjustment disorders. Symptoms often appear as disturbances in mood, emotional regulation, thought processes and behavior. Mental and physical health are interconnected where physical health is an integral part to mental health treatment. When physical activity is incorporated into therapeutic treatment, self-efficacy is strengthened. I offer individuals and families a program that combines therapy with an add-on of exercise.

It takes a lot of courage to start looking for a therapist. You or your loved one might be experiencing a pain that you don't know how to overcome. Whether it is sadness that won't go away, fear, or simply a tough time dealing with life's issues, its time to work on it. That's what brought you here. You realize it might be a phase, but maybe it hasn't improved even after talking to friends and family about it. It's hard to carry this on your own, and you are ready for change. You might not be sure how, or with whom, but you are ready. So proud of you and your courage.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
