These challenging times are an excellent time to focus within, on family , and couples work. My role as a therapist is strongly influenced by my experience as a husband and father. My approach is practical, sincere, strength-based and gentle, but challenging. With 18+ years experience, I provide therapy for adults, couples, teens and families. I excel in work with mood disorders, relationships, and trauma resiliency. I believe therapy includes both psychological and spiritual wholeness, which I strive to support in those from all walks of life.

I work to create a safe emotional space for clients to be able to open up to themselves and be honest with themselves on a deeper level. I never use shame or judgement to push clients into change. I work with my client where they are and who they are to help dismantle shame, family trauma, societal trauma, and unconscious motivations. I enjoy working within diversity, this includes all religions, races, ethnicities, nationalities, sexualities, genders, etc. If you are looking for a kind, accepting, and affirming space, my office may be right for you.

Most commonly the clients I work with are dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, ADHD/learning issues, peer or family relational problems, low self esteem and trauma.
My area of focus and specialty has been with preteens and adolescents. Through working with teens I inevitably work with their parents and I'm comfortable working with adults as well on their own issues. I can also be a guiding hand to help them improve their parenting skills with a Love and Logic approach. I'm experienced with complicated family systems and truly believe that creating change for a teen requires work from the entire family to help support that change. Teens are malleable and are very capable of change if given the proper support.

Whether it is working individually, with the entire family , in person, or through telehealth, I am dedicated to working collaboratively with you.
Often times in life we are faced with difficulties, trauma, and life transitions that can be painful, overwhelming, confusing, and frightening. During these times, we can also feel depressed, angry, anxious, and struggle with day to day life. We may find that we are triggered by stress, conflict, and old wounds may reopen and even deepen. Reliving intrusive and painful memories may cause us to distance ourselves from others. Further, it can be agonizing trying to navigate through these difficulties and times. We may feel alone or that we have no one to talk to that we can trust. We may find that our normal supports are not enough.

Sometimes our life experiences have a way of causing an altered view of ourselves and the world around us. Trauma and grief can also cause us to disconnect from our lives and the people we love, leaving us feeling unsettled, anxious, and lost. My approach to counseling involves creating a safe space for my clients that supports self-exploration, understanding, and personal growth. My strength-based, trauma-informed practice draws primarily from cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness practices, and internal family systems. Together, we can define your goals and values, and explore who you truly are.

Additionally I provide Internal Family Systems (IFS) an intra-psychic approach to understanding internal motivation, self-talk.
You may be saying to yourself: "I feel stuck. I feel disengaged. The problems seem insurmountable. When I attempt conversation about difficult issues they invariably turn to gridlock. Hurtful words are used by both of us. Withdrawal, isolation and silence follow. It seems we have a crisis over something. Then we have a brief honeymoon followed by a period of tension leading to another explosion. Seems like it never ends. Seems my efforts to engage are met with distancing by my spouse. I feel more and more disconnected, more helpless and hopeless about this relationship."

I'm a native Montanan with a degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and almost 30 years experience in private practice.
I work with adults, couples and teenagers. My approach is a blend of Family Systems Theory, cognitive behavioral therapy and positive psychology. I believe the quality of our lives is mostly determined by the quality of our relationships, so my work often involved teaching communication skills, resolving conflict and applying the new but vast amount of scientific research about relationships to your own lives. We can't control the events in our lives or our feelings, but we can control our behavior and thoughts. Counseling is learning to do just that. It's educational, inspiring and helpful in so many ways!

I enjoy working with adults and adolescents in individual and family settings and feel confident addressing a broad scope of therapeutic issues.
In a time when social media makes life seem effortless and perfect, it certainly can be difficult to accept help with our emotions and relationships. When the challenge of balancing life becomes difficult, there’s no better time to seek objective feedback to realign our mental health and lifestyle with our values. I consider it a privilege to help people unravel their life concerns and reach their goals.

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.
