Anxiety, depression, anger, and low self-esteem are issues that can be overwhelming. I help clients to identify the factors that contribute to these issues, and then assist in formulating a plan to reduce the symptoms and resolve the problems. I provide a warm, nonjudgmental environment to address these concerns. Additionally, I am experienced in working with individuals and couples struggling with relationships and/or parenting. Parenting can be wonderful, but also extremely challenging. Relationships can falter. These situations can bring up unexpected thoughts and feelings that may be difficult to share with friends and family .

My ideal clients are those who are experiencing difficulties with blended family issues, adolescent development, trauma, grief and loss, separation and divorce. My role as a therapist is to facilitate a process of healing by partnering with each client. I believe it is essential to listen carefully to an individual, couple or family and develop a partnership that combines my training and experience as a practitioner with each persons unique capacity for healing and growth. Most importantly, the objective of intervention and caring is promoting the family 's ability to support the passions and interests that exist in each individual.

I get it. You've been wanting to make a change for a while, but it's exhausting just to think about taking on another thing. It's a chore just to manage all the day to day stuff of work and family and making everything run smoothly; much less eating healthy, going to the gym, working on relationships, AND going to regular therapy sessions! It's a spiral that's so easy to get lost in and it's hard to find a foothold to steady yourself and find a way out. Therapy CAN offer that foothold; some guidance to help figure out how to feel peaceful and content with your life, and have the energy to do things that make you feel fulfilled.

Maybe you have never gone to a therapist before and you are nervous about taking the next step? Maybe you have been to several therapists but feel you just didn’t connect with him/her and you are trying again? Either way, you are at the point where you feel yourself spinning and you know you need something or someone to help you, your relationship or your family to feel connected again. You may know exactly where you started to disconnect or possibly things have gone so off track for so long you don’t know where or why you ended up here, looking for a therapist? Whatever brings you here today, I am here for you.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist , focused on relational healing.
You have spent years now wishing that things would be different. Your hope that things would get better once you were done school, the kids were older, you/they got the job, but nothing feels different. You are stuck in cycle, that during it's peak shakes you to your core and makes you question everything. When things feel calmer, you are holding your breath waiting for it to start again. You want to break free of this cycle. You want joy, laughter, love and connection! You already have the answers to make this a reality, maybe you just need a guide.

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.
