My focus of treatment includes individuals, couples, parents and family work for teens, adults and older adults.
We are currently living in a challenging time. The unprecedented demands of living through the COVID-19 pandemic; "shelter-in-place," social isolation, altered work & education via ZOOM, financial hardship, and more, has left many people experiencing new emotional struggles. The experience of loss due to sickness and death of loved ones, friends, or coworkers, has also created a sense of "emotional overload" for many. Talking to a compassionate professional can help you get through this difficult period. I am available to help you navigate these uncharted waters, as you seek to "land" on solid ground.

I'm here for you when you're not sure where else to turn: to reassure you that things can and do get better; to help you discover inner strengths to resolve your difficulties; and to support you along your healing journey. Reaching out for professional help can be difficult, but turning to friends and family may not always be the best option and ignoring problems won't make them go away. Remember: you don't have to do this alone - I'm here for you.

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.
