Asking for help is difficult, sometimes overwhelming. Most people are touched by anxiety, depression, relationship issues and even addiction at some point in their lives, either within themselves or a family member. I create a safe, relaxing and inviting space for you to begin dealing with these difficult, but treatable issues. Many people, particularly men, are socialized to ignore or never discuss their innermost feelings and worries. College students often struggle with questions about whom they are and whom they want to become. Parents often feel powerless to help their children. Together, we can work toward achieving your goals.

I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples, addressing a variety of challenges, including anxiety, depression, family issues, relationships, self-esteem, anger management, ADHD, personality disorder, behavioral challenges, etc. I have 16 years of experience providing intensive outpatient counseling to individuals and groups. I strongly believe that counseling is a partnership between the therapist and the client, designed to arrive at the needed objectives and goals. Whereas the therapist has skills and training, the client is always the expert on themselves and their families. Only through working together with regard for the dignity and worth of each individual can challenges be alleviated and strengths enhanced.

My skills in cognitive behavior therapy, family systems theory, and mindfulness will allow us to work together to attain your goals.
Clients struggling with mood disorders (anxiety, depression, bipolar) can find help with therapy to confront and understand their issues. Accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment planning can bring hope to your stress with ADHD and adjustment disorders. Trauma is often at the root of many problems. Individuals and families can work together in their community to find peace and satisfaction in their relationships, education and work.

My training in various methods, including EMDR & Internal Family Systems, means we can find the one that works best for you.
Has fighting with anxiety, planning your day around triggers, or feeling distracted become a part of your everyday life? Trauma doesn’t always go away when it’s over and sometimes it interferes with your life, relationships, and overall health. It can be difficult to keep moving forward, especially when you have frequent symptoms. Let's work together to find practical solutions for you and relief from symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, dissociation, childhood trauma, overcoming emotional abuse, or difficulties coping with complicated grief or major life changes.

) I've worked in various roles in social services and counseling for over 20 years and am a licensed professional counselor and a licensed marriage and family therapist .
Life is difficult. And for various reasons--pride, fear and procrastination among them--we as humans don't always readily reach out for help. There are many ways to reach out. Some do it through talking to family members or clergy. Some through friends or support groups. And sometimes the problems we are dealing with go away by themselves. But not usually.

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.
