I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, identity issues, behavioral issues, relationships and family concerns.
It takes a great deal of strength to wake up each day and face life head on. I believe that there are times in our lives that present challenges to the person you are or want to be. Whether you are dealing with stress, worry, depression, or are not getting out of life what you want or deserve, talking to someone may be helpful. With over 8 years of experience in the mental health field, I value the person you are and the person you want to be. I believe you have the ability and right to get out of life all that you want.

I’m interested in how trauma and life transitions impact the way someone feels about themself and their relationship to the world. I work with individuals on issues related to trauma, self-harm, identity and self-esteem, attachment struggles, individual, family and group relationship dynamics, domestic violence, relational boundaries – and the way these factors and mental health symptoms play out in patterns in people’s lives.

When I’m not working, I am spending time with my family , my friends and my dog, Frankie.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the tool that starts healing. My initial goal for my clients is that they feel comfortable and cared for. I prioritize the therapeutic relationship by bringing my genuine self to treatment, using open communication, and sharing in laughter and check ins as a way to help make the environment feel warm and safe. Once you feel safe, the work can begin. I enjoy working with women and families who are experiencing issues with mental health, substance use, life transitions or trauma. I also enjoy working women who are prepartum and postpartum as they begin their journey into motherhood.

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.
