I promote strengthing the family unit by helping each family member understand not only themselves and their behaviors, but also the behaviors of others in the family .
I believe we all possess more power than we give ourselves credit for when it comes to healing and finding our inner peace. My focus tends to be geared toward helping people find their strengths and see what they CAN do and what they are capable of verses looking at themselves as having "issues" or "problems" that hinder them from being where they want to be.

My mission is to provide clients of all ages with a safe, nonjudgmental space where they can truly feel heard, respected, & empowered. I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist , Mental Health Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, & Sandtray Therapist. I treat a variety of issues. I believe clients want a therapist who is genuine, compassionate, trustworthy, smart, & funny. They want a therapist who cares about them, wants to hear their story, supports them through the "hard" stuff, teaches them tools to solve problems on their own, celebrates their wins, & helps with accountablity when needed. If this sounds like you, let's talk.

Family life can be where we feel loved and supported, or we feel confusion, overwhelm, and grief. Family life is already complicated, especially when it is impacted by trauma, neurodiveristy, or adoption and foster care, or some combination of all three. Subsequently, you can feel misunderstood, alone, and "othered" by friends and family . And I see you! I provide a safe and compassionate environment through the lens of relational neuroscience, specializing in the care for adults and parents impacted by trauma, neurodiversity, adoption, and foster care.

I believe that people need to be heard, and can find and articulate their own truth, their own path to health with compassion, empathy, and time-to tell their story, feel appreciated, to heal, and to change. I have worked to include spirituality, creativity, and the ability to accompany someone on their journey-so that our brief connections can have impact through the week, and through life. I value family input and involvement, social supports, and evidence-based methods, but more so I value my client's individual personal journey. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, and Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor.

I like to say that I work with families, because whether we are looking at a couple, an individual, or the entire family constellation, I am working with that system.
I've been in practice for over 30 years and in that time have continued to appreciate the amazing strengths and courage that people have, despite their self-doubt. It is the challenge to unravel the doubt that keeps me energized, but humbled by the amazing courage most of my clients possess in dealing with their struggles. It is my hope that I somehow can assist them in appreciating themselves and the systems from which they come and exist, but how they truly can be creators of change in their lives.

I understand that the choice of a therapist is an important one. The trust that is built between the client and the therapist is important in determining how helpful therapy can be. I work hard to create a supportive therapeutic environment. I believe in providing a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere and encourage people to talk at a pace that is comfortable for them. I believe that an individual has the ability to learn to do things differently and feel better. I use techniques associated with the widely recognized cognitive behavioral theory as well as those from family system's theory.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have extensive experience working with individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, helplessness, and need additional tools to cope with daily stressors and overwhelming thoughts or feelings. In the fast-paced world we live in, we are constantly facing heightened feelings of stress that can be caused by workplace, parenting, family , couple or other relationship conflicts. Unfortunately, for many, alcohol or drugs is used to “manage” difficult times. It is my goal to help clients navigate their most complex feelings and to provide the tools and skills needed to help them thrive.

You had an affair. It's something you thought you'd never do, and now you're left in a state of pain and confusion. Why did I do that? How could I do it? What did it mean? What was I looking for? Or maybe it was your partner who had an affair, and now you're left in a state of deep hurt, anxiety, anger or disgust. How could this happen? How do we move on? How can I ever learn how to trust them again? Why me? The pain from infidelity can be very intense and doesn't easily dissipate. Trying to navigate the waters alone can feel even more unbearable, and you're looking for somebody to help keep you afloat.

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.
