I offer a safe and non-judgmental space to process some of the challenges of life. Not happy in your current relationship? Feeling sad and worried all the time? Reaching out is the most difficult step, but you'll be glad you did. I look forward to hearing from you.

As a therapist I firmly believe that transformative growth and liberation depend on first developing a trusting relationship. My individual clients are looking for space to discuss anxiety, pressures from work and family, and daily stressors with someone who recognizes the connections to social identity. When working in relationships—whether romantic, sexual, familial—my clients value the safety to each express their needs and better understand one another.

I use a dynamic approach to therapy, blending psychodynamic and relational perspectives with existentialism and Internal Family Systems.
I believe healing requires a holistic approach that addresses all aspects of the human experience. I am interested in understanding the many layers that shape one’s beliefs and personal stories, striving to understand the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. Developing inner trust and self-acceptance is a vital part of the therapeutic process. I hope to encourage and guide clients to listen to their innate wisdom and collaborate with them in their journey to reconnect with the most authentic version of themselves.

I have treated clients with a wide range of issues, but I specialize in helping women to better understand and manage some of the "typical" life events that often cause distress but may go untreated. I am passionate about helping clients gain a better understanding of how early childhood experiences and family culture have impacted their current functioning and self-esteem, and how those play a part in their ability to manage life's milestones. Significant issues related to relationships, career, parenting, family and social interactions are so common, but are often ignored because they are "normal". Change is possible!

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.
