Prioritizing mental and emotional health may sometimes feel hard to do when there is so much going on. However, the feeling of growth, strength, hope and triumph are worth it when taking the step to improving one’s mental well-being. Navigating past or present stressors doesn’t have to be done alone. I have 8 years of social work practice and acquired experience in working with with children, adolescents and adults in addressing their anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, family conflict, psychosis, mania, personality disorders, crisis intervention and emotional instability.

Managing life’s challenges can overwhelm each of us. Whether juggling typical ups and downs or coping with loss, trauma, major upset or crisis, there are times we need compassion, an advocate, a fellow strategist or just someone to listen. Our relationship to ourselves, family , career, or life changes can sometimes seem out of control, leading to depression, anxiety or isolation. Therapy is a tool designed to help manage life’s challenges and bring clarity, perspective and a sense of well-being.

I incorporate family systems, attachment theory, and 12-step informed practice into much of my work.
I am committed to co-creating a soft, genuine, relational space for my clients to get to know their inner systems. I have a graduate degree in Social Work, and I am trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS). I have been engaged with the IFS model for over eight years, and it is the primary model I use for psychotherapeutic work. I have assisted as a staff member on three Level 1 IFS trainings, helping other therapists and practitioners learn the model.

Connection. It’s what we are all looking for. Connection with ourselves. Connection with others. But how do we achieve that in a world that constantly forces us to disconnect in order to survive? To numb out, to run from conflict, to judge, to avoid our vulnerability. Our vulnerability is what makes us beautiful. Let’s get back to that beauty. Whether you’re struggling with romantic relationships, work and family stress, or trying to cope with the multiple crises happening around the world, I’m here to support you. I’ve been a therapist for more than a decade and have helped hundreds of people just like you.

Change can be intimidating. We develop methods of coping that, at one time, perhaps helped to survive, but now prevent us from ultimately thriving. This can manifest in our relationship patterns and our mood, causing disruption in work, love, family , friendships and a healthy identity. My approach to therapy is rooted in helping clients develop a deeper understanding of these patterns and effecting change and empowerment through insight, support, and challenging maladaptive beliefs.

I became a psychotherapist because I believe in the healing and transformation that can only happen in healthy relationships. Many of my clients struggle in relationships with themselves, family , partners, events from their past, or with certain behaviors. I find that often, at the core of these struggles is the basic need to be understood & accepted. My approach to therapy is collaborative and you-centered; I strive to create a space that invites exploration & curiosity, rather than criticism & shame. With therapy, you'll begin to see yourself & others with less negative, isolating emotions, in a more balanced & compassionate light

Congrats for taking that step to a new future! My commitment to you is to offer over 25 years of clinical practice, specializing in anxiety & depression, trauma, family /parenting issues for starters.
Adults and families that partner with me are seeking guidance, compassion, goals that lead (not frustrate), a future plan and a "toolbox" that supports your transformation. You can see the specializations in my intro, and you may know acronyms like CBT, (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT, REBT, ACT and these are foundations for the process of understanding emotions, behavior, patterns, the life you have lived and where you wish to take it. Mind/body work is another arm of gaining confidence and reaching goals. Our work will yield a pattern of new reactions and behaviors and the future you make.

My diverse training and experience includes a variety of short and long-term treatment modalities such as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), Functional Family Therapy (FFT), play therapy with children, psychodynamic and humanistic techniques.
My clients are children, adolescents, adults and parents experiencing life stressors, struggling with relationships, striving for personal growth or seeking change. My work commonly addresses symptoms such as anxiety, depression or general difficulty functioning in one or more areas. I use an eclectic and collaborative style to best serve each client. My highly individualized and integrative approach draws from a variety of techniques depending on specific therapeutic goals and needs. When working with children and adolescents, I find it is important and most effective if I collaborate closely with their parents to support the family system and promote optimal outcomes.

Therapy is an integral part of self-care and overall health. My goal is to help clients uncover their strengths and passion to live more fulfilling lives. Communicating (with self or others) is a common area of focus, particularly relating to transitions across the lifespan (such as adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, etc.) as well as facilitating meaningful communication both for the individual and the relationship (for example, couples, family members, friends, and coworkers).

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.
