As a child and family therapist , I value the unique relationships I am able to create with my clients.
My career has been dedicated to helping children, adolescents, and young adults achieve balance and direction through a strengths-based lens. After serving as a school counselor for over 6 years, I have come to recognize the significant role mental health plays on performance, friendships, family dynamics, and overall well-being. I understand the constant struggles of juggling current responsibilities while also trying your best to plan ahead and work toward your goals. This is where I come in.

It's my understanding that emotions are my mind and body's way of telling me something about my life experience. However, emotions can be uncomfortable, scary, and overwhelming. It requires vulnerability and courage to ask for help getting to understand these feelings better. I strive to help clients better understand their life experiences and feelings however they may show up. I have seen clients with trauma, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, existential issues, codependency, behavioral issues, grief, divorce, family conflict, autism, ADHD, & more. I work with children as young as 3 years old, adolescents, adults, & families.

Brene Brown once said "Vulnerability is not knowing victory or defeat, it’s understanding the necessity of both; it’s engaging. It’s being all in." I approach a session in this way and I hope to help each client navigate this journey. Whether it is issues with depression, anxiety, family conflict, substance abuse, etc, I hope to help each client reach that balance. I use an eclectic counseling approach to meet the needs of every client. I also see children as young as 4 years of age and aim to help them explore their emotions through their own language.. play.

Hi. Therapy isn't easy work but it's achievable if you'd like to develop healthier patterns for living. If you are struggling with family , co-workers, your spouse, we may be able to enhance your skills so you can wear your smile again. Are you saddened too much of the time? Angered by those you love? Retaliating unacceptably? Feeling undervalued while believing you do the best you can? Feeling lost and vulnerable in a hectic world? We may be able to identify behaviors, feelings which identify your "core," bringing them to the surface in a way which is comfortable.

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.
