There are so many profiles and acronyms after people's names on this website, and you just want some help with a mental health issue, life stressors, or maybe you're not entirely sure what you need help with. Perhaps the pandemic has just rocked your world, and things haven't quite gotten back to where it used to be for you. And you're here because a friend or family member encouraged you to look for some help, but now, it's kind of overwhelming with all of these profiles and degrees and specialities.

Getting to the core of why you think, act, and behave the way you do is the key to creating the life you want — the life you’re meant to live. If you’re someone who’s felt stuck, keeps coming back to the same destructive patterns, or has tried therapy before but didn’t gain lasting change, you have come to the right place.

Do you have trouble getting through the day, feeling tired or discouraged? Maybe you’re going through the motions but aren’t sure why. Many people I work with have felt overwhelmed, stressed, or just stuck. You may have found temporary coping skills that have worked to get you this far. But life’s about more than just surviving each day with the least amount of pain. I help people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, and stress, and are ready for a change. I believe you have a purpose and deserve to experience a more fulfilling life. You can learn to stop fighting and become more excited and hopeful about the future.

For over the past 16 years I have worked with adults and adolescents struggling with diverse mental health issues. This can include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD,eating disorders, substance abuse, and borderline personality disorder. These issues can be influenced by stress from external triggers, including trauma, family issues, medical issues, work stress, relationship issues, and grief and loss. Throughout my extensive experience in hospital and private practice settings, I find individuals often feel intensely overwhelmed and stuck in negative thinking patterns and behaviors. By developing a therapeutic relationship, we can create a treatment plan to increase positive feelings and facilitate effective behavioral changes.

I have 9 years experience working with children and families who have suffered the effects of trauma, substance abuse, domestic violence, unhealthy family dynamics, and overall poor coping skills.
As a Psychotherapist, I believe that everyone already has the tools they need to be their most productive and successful self. Sometimes people just need the support and encouragement from an outside source to reach their personal "happy place". Every patient has a right to Self-Determination and Self-Awareness. Psychotherapy can help develop insight, coping mechanisms, and social skills to help us build stronger relationships.

Confidential, Caring and Professional...When times are difficult at home or at work (or school) and you feel overwhelmed and stressed...anxiety and depression often follow. Perhaps you have had a childhood that was traumatic or troubled and you haven't felt like you resolved it or thought you had but something from the past gets in the way. When talking with friends and family doesn't seem to be enough - or you're not comfortable confiding in them, this is often the time to seek help from a professional who cares and understands.

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.
