I believe in mindfulness, mind-body connection, psychodynamic, internal family systems therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to support healing trauma, positive thought reframing and growth.
Welcome to a safe place. My goal is to create a calm therapeutic environment, where each person can relax, feel supported and express whatever comes to mind. This is a judgment free zone, where no subject is off limits. I take a non-directive approach and allow you to be the boss. Whether you are wanting to learn about healthy boundaries, are open to understanding your emotional or physical distress and where your belief systems come from, we will work to help you reconnect with yourself, improve interpersonal relationships and enjoy your connection to the world around you.

I utilize an integrative, holistic approach that is informed by the Mind/Body connection, Mindfulness, Exposure and Response Prevention, Internal Family Systems, and Hypnotherapy.
I am an Anxiety, OCD and Trauma specialist. When clients come to work with me they are often struggling with fear of the unknown, relationship challenges, low self-esteem, behavioral and mental compulsions, negative intrusive thoughts and other such patterns that are taking them deeper into the fear spiral. In therapy, I support my clients in developing a kinder relationship with themselves while becoming more conscious of the negative coping patterns that are holding them in cycles of pain. We work on shifting this while also developing the positive coping skills needed to move towards a healthier, freer and more joyful life.

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.
