The path to therapy varies greatly from person to person: a quest for a deeper understanding of the self and the world around you, a response to an immediate crisis or life transition, or a desire to overcome ongoing obstacles that stand in the way of your goals and life satisfaction. Whatever your journey to therapy may be, I provide a comfortable, non-judgmental environment in which to explore long-standing patterns, personal perceptions, family experiences and current situations, offering the opportunity to increase self-awareness and pursue greater personal fulfillment in your relationships, career, and other areas of life.

Are you exhausted by having the same struggles with your child or spouse day after day with no relief in sight? We often repeat similar patterns from our family of origin or conversely do the opposite. Either way we are stuck in a preordained negative cycle that we can not navigate alone. I have twenty five years of experience and training helping families change their communication patterns n a short term systemic model. These behaviors can actually perpetuate the very problems you are trying to solve!

I work with individuals from many cultural and religious backgrounds, and am sensitive to those negotiating relationship to tradition/ family with respect to their own self-understanding.
My approach to therapy is psychoanalytically informed, borrowing tools from cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches. I take time to get to know the person in their present day-to-day life, as well looking carefully at past history, patterns of thought and behavior, and relationship dynamics. My goal is for my clients to develop a deepened relationship to themselves. This work involves us partnering to find language and create structures that facilitate change.

It can be hard to recognize when you need to turn to someone for help. Sometimes having a trusted person outside your family & friends can offer the clarity and support you need during a difficult transition. I give my clients a safe space to talk where they can identify obstacles and work to become more hopeful, empowered and grounded in their lives. By exploring your thoughts & feelings, we will be able to move you forward and help you to find the support you need.

My background and experience are quite varied, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and neuropsychological perspectives. This allows me to approach each situation with a unique focus on the need of the individual or individuals involved, and to provide treatment tailored to those needs (rather than to narrow conceptualization on my part of what psychotherapy 'is'). I also frequently draw upon the practice of meditation in helping people cope with anxiety, depression, learning issues, impulsivity, addiction, and so on. My commitment is to helping people gain both self-understanding and the ability to make substantive changes in behavior.

As both a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Mental Health Counselor I provide therapy to individuals, couples, and families.
Through improving our ability to communicate, we strengthen the bonds in our relationships. First, we must engage in honest, self-reflection by examining and distinguishing our needs and wants. Once we have gained greater self-awareness, we can then focus on communicating with our partners and family members through respectful talking, listening, and reflection. It is through improved understanding that we create fertile ground for growth and development. Support groups are provide for high school and college students with disabilities and parents of special needs children.

Have you or family members been faced with obstacles that have caused you to lose hope and courage? You may be feeling uninspired and do not believe you have the capability to be optimistic and patient. Perhaps there are internal battles to get through the day without breaking down. When working with a therapist that is "the right fit" in an environment that is "safe and supportive" I believe you can develop the physical and emotional strength to work through your struggles. In an interactive/ collaborative way we will work to make positive changes to improve your life and relationships.

Having trained in both the individual analytic model as well as family systems I view therapy as a collaborative process between therapist and client intending on meeting agreed upon goals. My style is interpersonal and believe that goals are met in the context of a therapeutic relationship based on empathy, insight and trust.

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.
