In a world full of people, you may be feeling alone, misunderstood, or not truly seen by those around you. This can happen when we are disconnected with those we love or when we are going through difficult things. We weren't meant to traverse this world alone, and developing meaningful relationships with those around us is important to our overall health and wellbeing. If you struggle in relationship with yourself or others and would like to learn how to improve overall self-esteem, healthy boundaries, relationships with family and friends, then you are at the right place.

My intention in working with you is to help you change unwanted behavior patterns. These patterns are frequently based on negative conclusions we may have drawn about ourselves in the past. I typically use a blend of traditional talk therapy combined with experiential approaches such as Brainspotting,, hypnotherapy, breathwork, psychodrama, and meditation. In this way we are able to re-introduce you to your strengths as well as take the healing to a deeper level. I consider it a privilege to do this work and I honor you for undertaking the challenge of personal growth.

Divorce and family issues are hard to deal with, so I provide therapy to help through hard times. I work with parents and grandparents who are suffering due to alienation and post traumatic stress. I also assist in high-conflict divorce cases where parental alienation exists meeting with the children and adults involved. My experience includes educational counseling experience, as well as life experience. Helping parents and children get through many life changes such as divorce and re-adjustments can be assisted with therapy by giving them tools to cope.

Do you struggle with change like so many of us do? Do you look for ways to deal with it that may not be healthy for you? Do you wish things would resolve on their own or just go away? Change and conflict are inevitable. Some changes occur smoothly, some are stormy and others are very turbulent with high conflict and pain. We can all use some unbiased support during the stormy and turbulent times and yes, even during the smooth changes. We will explore together your aspirations and what may be impeding you in fully experiencing and living your own life. What really matters most to you and are you ready to explore it with me?

As a teen, I was overwhelmed by trauma and cynicism. It was at times impossible to imagine a better future. But many things worked together to help me survive those years of depression. Kind helpers went out of their way to guide and care for me. Every day I aim to follow their example in my work as a mental health therapist. I believe in the power of creative expression, honest connection, and above all: hope. I would be honored to help turn your struggles into healthy coping strategies.

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.
