Coming to counseling is a brave and loving thing to do for yourself and others. I am passionate about working with couples and families. I focus on strengthening bonds by helping clients experience the benefits of non-reactive listening, creating appropriate boundaries, and understanding deeper needs. I utilize the Gottman Method when working with couples, and a relational approach to family therapy . I also enjoy working with individual clients, helping them gain self-understanding and compassion. If desired, a spiritual awareness that is respectful of every person's faith commitments can be incorporated into therapy.

I am a Licensed Psychotherapist with 26 years clinical and 16 years of teaching experience. (Please see the SEMINAR page on my website). I blend new effective treatment techniques as well as traditional psychotherapeutic models. In many cases, I focus on solution-oriented, effective, symptom relief. Individuals are complex and psychological concerns cannot be separated from family dynamics, personal history, identity issues, work-related stress, and physical health. When necessary, and with client's permission, I collaborate with all healthcare professionals to create a 'think tank' approach to treatment.

What if you could re-engage with yourself, your family , your career and your values immediately? It is time to take the first step and work with a therapist who has extensive experience, a positive attitude, a multi-tiered approach and good sense of humor?.
One of the factors that makes every life worth living is being present and engaged with the world around you and with the people who know you deeply. Patterns can evolve and circumstances may arise which limit our engagement. I believe that it is possible to rejuvenate any life, regardless of the challenges faced from the doctor's office to the corporate office and from middle school to middle age and beyond.

I use a combination of Marriage and Family therapy , Hypnotherapy and Spiritual psychology to understand and heal faulty negative self conclusions from the past. Once we understand,( sometimes through buried memories,) that our value as human beings cannot be "unworthy, or "not good enough", we can repair mental, emotional and spiritual wounds from the past. My goal is for you to live in freedom and fulfillment from finding your passion in, and for 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.
