I am trained in IFS (Internal Family Systems), Brainspotting, and EMDR.
No matter what has brought you to therapy, your experience is valid. I believe that even the most unlikeable, confusing, extreme parts of you have a wisdom to be understood, a protectiveness to be thanked, and a vulnerability to be seen and heard. In my practice, I will seek to meet you exactly where you are, and together we can tend to the unique challenges in your life. My ultimate goal is for clients to uncover their essential self—to rediscover their own innate wisdom and strength that can face whatever life brings. We will work together to create a life where you feel more aware and in charge of your journey.

I use an integrated treatment approach that sees you in the wider context of your family and your relationships and together we will set goals to suit your needs.
Do you feel yourself powerless in the face of strong emotions and spiraling thoughts? I can guide you to learn how to accept all parts of yourself, the "wanted" as well as the "unwanted" and gain a productive distance from thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Are you feeling fragmented by competing demands that leave you feeling unfulfilled? I can help you discover your own values and help you create actions plans that are in line with your core values. Do family dynamics leave you feeling joyless? Do you find yourself having the same arguments with little resolution? Are you struggling with self-esteem issues?

These days people have more difficulties to face and fewer resources to assist in making sense of what is going on around them. Depression, anxiety, and addiction are all on the rise, which effect one's career, family life, and relationships. Constant demands of modern life often clouds the dreams and aspirations we once had. Our personal goals are hindered by our own demons or the damage of situations surrounded by hurt and disappointment outside of our control. Perhaps you are one of the many people in this country today dealing with debt, divorce, substance abuse, relational and family struggles.

If you and your family are facing a major life transition (launching an adolescent, retirement, menopause, divorce, or remarriage), I can help you navigate the uncertainty of these changes.
For over 15 years, I have helped clients improve their most important relationships. I have found that when we experience conflict, communication challenges, a lack of emotional/physical intimacy, or have unmet needs, we can struggle to feel complete. Whether I am working with an individual client, a couple, or an entire family system, I can support you in strengthening your intimate relationships. I specialize in maternal mental health (infertility, pregnancy, and postpartum), premarital and marital counseling, parent-child interactions, and extended family (in-laws, siblings, and family of origin) dynamics.

Drawing strength from the conviction that every individual possesses the power for self-discovery and resilience, I employ therapeutic models deeply rooted in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and Existential Therapy.
Clients who seek my guidance often yearn for liberation from the burdens of anxiety, stress, depression, or interpersonal strife. Their aspiration extends beyond symptom relief; they desire insight into the underlying causes. Many discover that their surface behaviors merely scratch the surface of their issues and are on a quest for genuine transformation and healing.

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.
