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.

One of my greatest joys, is helping individuals, couples and families learn to manage the various, yet often unavoidable, stresses of life. Our days are packed with work, school, family , and relationships. We come home depleted and then it starts all over again the next day. Feelings of anxiety, panic, depression, anger, and/or lack of motivation, are inevitable. So it grieves my heart when clients ask what's wrong with them. So while we may need to "power through" certain situations, I help my clients develop strategies that are tailor made to their circumstances and personality, to successfully complete the marathon of life.

Struggling is a normal part of our lives, and yet many of us try and ignore the emotional pain, and discomfort. One might try and normalize, "it's just a little anxiety" or maybe minimize, "I'm not THAT unstable, I don't need help". The truth is we all need support throughout our life time. I have experience working with children, teens, and adults. I have worked with clients struggling with; depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders, low self-esteem, OCD, and those who have a diagnosis of Autism.

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.
