Life can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming. Therapy is a safe place where you can understand yourself better and learn how to use tools to cope with depression, anxiety, and substance use which often creates more stress and relationship/ family problems. Whether you are struggling with school or work, I can provide you with meaningful strategies and support to help you through this difficult time. In my approach to treatment, I aim to help you understand the importance of the Mind-Body Relationship and spirituality as vehicles for positive change.

Many times these unhelpful patterns are a result of us trying to shape ourselves to fit the expectations of family , friends, or society.
Are you navigating challenges associated with gender identity, sexuality, or relationships and looking for somebody to talk to who understands? Or maybe you are coming to therapy for help with other challenges and would feel more comfortable with a therapist who is part of the LGBTQ+ community. Either way, I am here to provide a warm, supportive, and collaborative space, where you feel safe to discuss and explore the things that are most important to you. It is often difficult to recognize the behaviors or thought patterns keeping us stuck.

Hello, I am a bilingual and bicultural therapist whose goal is to support my patients/clients to feel heard and validated. I want my patients to progress and understand that their diagnosis does not define nor control them. I am willing to walk this journey with my patients and push them when they need the push, and support them when they feel “alone”. I graduated in May of 2020, with my Master of Science in Marriage, Family , and Couples, I have been working with patients on a therapeutic level for about 2 years. However, I have worked in case management roles and child protection collectively for over 20 years.

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.
