I am an individual, couple, and family therapist with experience helping people find solutions to a wide array of presenting problems. I specialize in working with: Teenagers and Adults struggling with self esteem issues, depression, anxiety, loss of hope, Couple and family / relationship issues dealing with family stressors, blended families, and parenting/co-parenting issues. I have worked extensively with families with child and adolescent problems. I believe the most effective and efficient way to help a person is to involve other members of their family so that the family reinforces any program of change.

Are you and your family members constantly in conflict? Do you feel at war with members of your own family ? If your child's behavior is causing you stress, I can help. If you and your partner are stuck in a negative communication cycle, I can help. Sometimes families do not know what to do with big emotions, whether anger, sadness or even happiness. Learning to deal with those big feelings is a direct benefit of therapy. Therapy will provide the tools in your toolbox to create a harmonious, peaceful home with your family .

Although these facts do not to quantify the effectiveness of my counseling, I show you my family .
Leo Tolstoy wrote, "A successful marriage is not the result of how compatable a couple is, but how successfully they manage their incompatiblity." When people are affected by impressions from painful events, many aspects of their lives are affected, even if events are not consciously remembered. The gentle method of Rapid Resolution Therapy and brain based clinical hypnosis, is effective removing conflicts that have been blocking desired change. This method has been successful in overcoming resentment, anger, guilt, anxiety, panic attacks, nightmares, and much more, thus increasing the possibility of compatability and satisfying relationships.

The practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy is both an art and a science. I am a humanitarian with a scientific foundation. I integrate research-based data and techniques, with a relationship-based and individualized approach. Symptom relief is very important to me, as is instilling coping strategies that are transformative and can last a lifetime.

Are your emotions or relationships feeling out of control? Are you tired of not knowing how to improve your stress, anxiety, depression, and difficult relationships? Is your past hanging up your present life? I will help you move from stressful worrying to feeling a sense of control over your thoughts, from depressed isolation to recovering a sense of purpose in life activities and relationships, from negative past messages in your head to a healthy view of yourself, from poor boundaries to saying no without guilt, from arguing and fighting to reconnected closeness, from chaotic overwhelm to a specific plan for peace.

I enjoy working with adults, children and adolescents. I believe that the central healing factor of effective therapy is a strong therapeutic connection or relationship between the client and the therapist. My goal in therapy is to offer a safe, warm haven to the client where they feel accepted and free to express the issues that brought them to therapy. I use an eclectic approach to therapy using a variety of theories and methods to approach the needs of the individual client.

We are wired to connect with one another. And the nature of pain is that it can cause us to withdraw from those around us, including from ourselves. This is where I try to help; I take the art of listening seriously and recognize that being heard is a part of the therapy process. Experiences with depression, anxiety, relationships, substances and much more all impact & interfere with our ability to connect with others and with being comfortable with ourselves. If this is where you are, please contact me to see if I would be a good fit for you.

Life can be so tough. Even when we want to live our best lives and thrive, sometimes it can just feel impossible to see the way to get there. When we've done the best we can and things still aren't working the way we want them to, that's when it's time to reach out and get help. As a therapist, it's my job to come along beside you, work with you to get really clear about all aspects of what is going on in the here and now, help you figure out where it is you would like to be instead, and walk with you from point A to point B.

Relationship issues suck the fun out of life. They can drain your energy and even make you feel like you're dying inside. Whether it is your marriage, a committed, or other significant relationship, if it is not healthy, you won't feel healthy either. Relationship issues are like a dark cloud hanging over your head. Not to mention, the mental gymnastics involved in managing negative thoughts can be exhausting. The disconnect between the perception your friends have of you versus your relationship reality, only adds to your burden. The true reality is, good relationships are essential to our health and happiness.

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.
