Change is a constant in all our lives and it can take on many forms. Sometimes it can mean loss (death, divorce or end of a relationship, career changes or retirement, aging, family transition, moving to a new area) and sometimes it can involve helping someone you know cope with their changes or challenges (social skills, medical status, mental health, etc.)

Times have changed and so has family dynamics. Life has really been challenging and even though Covid restrictions have been loosened you still may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed as you transition back to the social environment. Perhaps the issues you were having with your spouse or other family members were put on hold during the pandemic or have gotten worse. Maybe you are having difficulty deciding on a plan to return to the office. Whether it's due to marital or family issues, socialization, work/life balance, financial issues or just the transition process... whatever the reason, you are not feeling "normal"

I understand it is not easy to come to therapy but talking to family and friends is entirely different then talk "therapy". This is especially true if you are depressed, anxious, grieved, struggling in your marriage or have trauma. Just take that first step and make the phone call and I will guide you through the rest. My clients are so surprised to find out what a relief it is to come to therapy and wonder why they waited so long. My seasoned listening skills and thought provoking questions will help you know yourself better and reach your goals. My style is light and warm yet focused on results. Growth is my specialty!

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.
