My approach is eclectic, incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), attachment-focused family therapy , mindfulness and play therapy.
Do you struggle with worrying more than you would like? Is your mood lower than you would like it to be? Are you overwhelmed by the challenges of work or school, relationships, and family ? Perhaps you are finding parenting more challenging than you had imagined or would like to find someone to talk with your child or adolescent. I have experience with a variety of clinical issues including anxiety, depression, adjustment difficulties, parenting challenges, trauma, adoption and attachment issues, LGBTQ and women’s issues. Whatever the stresses you are facing, talking through them in a warm, safe environment can make a difference.

Relationships are central to my work, whether it be the relationship between a child or adult and myself, or the complex web of relationships within a family . My training and experience in Infant Mental Health--a type of therapy focusing on the attachment relationship between a primary caregiver and and an infant or young child--permeates all aspects of my work. I believe that therapy cannot separate an individual from the context of his or her relationships, past or present. I am creative and flexible in my approach to working with the children, teens, adults and families that I serve.

I enjoy working with people of all ages as they face life's challenges. Everybody struggles from time to time with worry, sadness, anger, and fear. Family difficulties, low self-esteem, problems in relationships, and school and work stress are common. When these issues persist over time, then psychotherapy can be helpful. I believe that a warm, caring, and trusting connection between the therapist and client is a necessary foundation before improvement can occur. We start with a consultation where I will listen carefully and sensitively to your concerns, and then offer you a therapeutic approach that will best help you achieve your goals.

Areas of emphasis: family of origin issues; attachment or intergenerational trauma; narcissistic abuse; race and/or gender related stress/trauma; perfectionism, high levels of self-criticism and shame.
Life is hard! Pause for a moment and give yourself credit for taking this brave, difficult step. You're respecting your struggles AND looking for constructive ways to address them. I use a collaborative and exploratory (rather than expert) model to help you develop/access resources to navigate life's difficulties. I use approaches supported by research while recognizing the limits of evidence-based therapies which often need to be adapted, abandoned, or incorporated with other practices to meet a person's realities, needs, and strengths. I strive to create a safe supportive relationship and deeply value feedback and dialogue.

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.
