During my final year of graduate school, I embarked on additional training in the area of Marriage and Family Therapy .
I have experience providing treatment for those who have suffered painful experiences in their childhood or adult life. As well as treating individuals who feel angry, sad or anxious much of the time. I have also worked with those who feel out of control of their behavior and feel misunderstood in their relationships. Additionally, I have experience working with milder symptoms including stress related to managing a healthy work-life balance, interpersonal relationship struggles, inattention, and hyperactivity.

We’ve all experienced times when we just feel stuck, going through the motions of life rather than actually living our best lives. Anxiety, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, past trauma or many other issues can impact your ability to live a full and happy life and have healthy family and other relationships. Therapy is a powerful medium that can provide many tools and strategies to help you navigate all of these challenges and many more. I enjoy working with child/adolescent, adult, and geriatric populations using a variety of therapeutic techniques including CBT, DBT, 12-Step, Trauma-Informed, and Family Systems Therapy.

I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
We all experience stress, whether it be from our jobs, relationships, and/or life changes, big and small. Most of the time we handle everything just fine but sometimes life throws us a curve and we become overwhelmed. That is when I would encourage you to talk with a professional, whether it is me or another professional.

I have extensive counseling experience working with children, adolescents and their families. I have training in Art therapy and Play therapy to direct children through the counseling process. Children are better able to explore and relieve their symptoms through expressive therapy techniques. These expressive therapies work in conjunction with behavior and cognitive behavioral techniques to allow children and adolescents the ability to understand their problems and solve them. In addition, I work with the family and the parents to ensure comprehensive treatment and support systems. I have also worked with adults on parenting issues, coping strategies, and marital issues.

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.
