Professional Counseling can be ideal and helpful for everyone. You probably already know numerous friends- family or co-workers that have benefited from having a fully-trained Mental-health Professional compassionately walk them through life’s challenges. It can be an opportunity for personal growth and to gain a better understanding of how to overcome and resolve the things that cause us to feel worried-frustrated-angry-disappointed or sad in life. So it’s important to remember that the challenges we face in life everyday can be resolved through simple problem-solving and participating in healthy coping/recreational activities.

My concentration or specialty is working with adults dealing with family conflicts, relationship/intimacy issues, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, terminal diagnosis, perinatal and post partum issues, and female hormonal issues.
I believe that everyone has their own unique life story to share. When life seems out of control and overwhelming it is very important to have a safe and confidential space to talk with a professional. Anxiety, depression and obsessive thought patterns can feel very isolating and paralyzing at times. The goal is to feel better and talk through these emotions and thoughts in order to cope effectively. It is so important to take care of your whole self and starting with our mental health is the first step to feeling better.

As a Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy (MAMFT), Limited Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LLMFT) I provide mental health services for general adults, couples, adolescents, individual clients, & families.
I believe mental health is just as important as physical health both are equally deserving of authentic care from a professional throughout one’s life. Delaying or denying treatment will only cause more harm to the individual, their children, & families in a negative way; also, it can alter the mental state of mind & have an undesirable emotional impact on one’s physical health. My professional training & knowledge are based on my faith, values, reality thoughtfulness, & mindfulness of our world. I am open to joining my clients to explore change, unique outcomes, & self-agency. I work with clients on short or long-term goals.

Deciding to seek therapy can seem overwhelming and yet could be the most important decision you make for yourself and your loved ones. Facing our fears and recognizing we need help facing life’s challenges is the first step in healing our wounded self or our dysfunctional family interactions. I see this desire to change or get to the root of our difficulties as a sign of mental health, not as weakness or “being broken.” I believe that everyone is doing the best that they can with the tools they have and change happens when we realize our ways of being in the world are no longer working for us.

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.
