I have served as a consultant for, advocated for and treated children in divorce and abuse situations-including legal, court, DCP&P and family issues.
In understanding that individuals in pain or having a particular challenge in life may make only one attempt at reaching out for help, I strive to welcome and set at ease every one who contacts me. Most therapy patients are ordinary people that have hit a bump in the road of life and cannot get past it on their own. My commitment, through goal directed therapy, is to help those people return to their optimal level of coping with the sometimes mild, sometimes severe challenges that life brings their way and guide them back to a sense of well being.

If you are a loved one of someone with addiction, I can help you navigate through loneliness this family disease can bring.
The cornerstone of my practice is a simple but incredibly vital one: providing empathy. I will listen to you and work to truly see and hear you. We all have different, unique stories and it’s so important to honor those in our therapeutic work together. By better understanding your story, I can then assist you in breaking down the challenges you’re facing into more manageable pieces so you don’t have to feel defined or limited by them. I will also guide you in recognizing your own strengths and work actively with you to develop healthy coping strategies to better manage your anxiety, depression, everyday stress or life transitions.

Are you a law enforcement officer who has thought about speaking to a professional regarding a personal or family issue, but have never felt comfortable reaching out for help? The decision to seek outside help is never easy and the process is even harder for those in law enforcement because of serious and real concerns regarding confidentiality.

I primarily draw upon Internal Family Systems (IFS Level 1 trained), somatic and mindfulness techniques, and relational psychotherapy.
As you begin in psychotherapy, I recognize and honor the courage it can take to embark on this journey. Life can be inherently stressful and overwhelming. You may feel stuck, burned out, down, or anxious. Emotions may be hard to manage. Whether you’re coping with a recent issue or you’ve been struggling for some time, I’ll work with you to meet your specific goals. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process that is unique to each person. You should feel safe, heard, and understood in the therapy relationship. This paves the way for you to develop a better understanding of yourself, explore ways of healing, and learn new skills.

I work with patients in individual and family therapy who suffer from anxiety, depression, personality disorders, self harm, eating disorders, and emotion dysregulation.
A key ingredient to successful therapy is having a strong therapeutic relationship. To foster this relationship I am open and honest with my client's and create an environment that allow the people I work with to feel cared for, safe, and free from judgement. My main treatment method is cognitive behavioral therapy however I take an integrative approach to treatment. I consider the individual needs of my clients, I help them regulate their emotions, manage stressors, and function effectively in their daily lives. I work with my clients collaboratively to develop interventions and coping strategies that work for them.

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.
