My approach is Attachment- and Mindfulness-Based and I am trained with the IFS Institute to apply the Internal Family Systems model.
You are having a hard time feeling connected to yourself and your loved ones, have difficulty managing the different aspects of your life and are experiencing a hard time coping with past events. You seem to have trouble recognizing who you are today, feel like your emotions are overwhelming and are missing a sense of peace. One thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to find the clarity and confidence in your decision making and move through life with more ease. Most of all, you’re ready to find joy in the day-to-day again. You’re ready for a new “normal”, and I can help you get there.

Are you dealing with the loss of a loved one? You’re balancing caregiving, and feeling anxious. Your friends or family want to be supportive, but they don't know how. You want to feel prepared, but don’t know how? Maybe you’ve already lost someone you love- a family member, a friend, a partner, a pet? Are you struggling to find a new path forward? Or maybe you just received a cancer diagnosis? Alternatively, are you feeling stuck in a relationship with a family member, friend, or partner? Do you keep repeating toxic relationship patterns and you're not sure why? You're exhausted and looking for a new perspective?

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.
