I have over thirty five years experience as a clinician and through these many years I have developed a therapeutic approach of collaboration, trust and genuine caring.

Therapy is a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life.
Feelings of depression and anxiety can be overwhelming and even quite painful. It is not always possible to "just shake it off". My clients are every day people who find themselves indulging "what if" questions all night when all they really want to do is get a good night of sleep. I have dedicated my career to helping people overcome challenges. I take great caring and respect of individuality to tailor my therapeutic approach for each person's highly individualized needs. Philosopher, Aristotle, once said: "Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom...and inner peace".

In a warm, caring and structured atmosphere, you, your partner and/or your family is assured of finding peace while determining solutions.
Adapting to change can be really difficult. Do you find your relationship or partnership to be sparkling a bit less these days? Maybe there are a few more disagreements than there used to be? Maybe the silence between you has grown? If you are a parent, are the positive techniques you used in the past no longer having the same impact on your child(ren)? Maybe you used get up with the alarm and drive to the gym. Now, you push the snooze button and rarely muster the strength to begin a favorite workout at home. Are you worried? Anxious? Concerned... all the time?

With my experience as a practitioner, I tend to experience clients who are struggling with relationships, work stress, social life, family issues, addiction, mood disorders and or a desire for internal work. Which are typically, prior to therapy, approached with an, "I can solve this myself attitude." This tends to come to the point where the issues are overwhelming and the discomfort of unhappiness and repeated patterns are just too much to bear. But you find yourself here, ready to do something different, and are ready for positive changes. Please Reach out and let me help you find peace and happiness again.

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.
