I have a special interest in trauma informed care, substance abuse counseling, self-esteem issues, marriage and family counseling, and grief counseling.
I find it a privilege to assist clients in their journey through life’s challenges and guiding them towards self awareness and personal growth. Since I understand that therapy can be a vulnerable place, I take pride in helping clients find joy and healing in the therapy process. I approach each client with “unconditional positive regard” and structure each session with the individual’s needs in mind. I believe that by facilitating a nurturing environment with a client centered focus, it enhances the healing process as it relates to trauma, unresolved grief, and abuse that underlies many mental health issues.

I believe that everyone deserves to be heard and respected especially during difficult times. Although family and friends can provide love and support, sometimes we need someone who can be totally objective. I strive to provide a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental environment where you can express needs and leave feeling heard and empowered to make positive changes in your life. Each person enters therapy with a unique set of issues and needs. Together we will develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

Everyone has a story. You may be struggling with common, everyday issues and simply looking for perspective, a good listener, and/or a nonjudgmental, friendly atmosphere to share your pain and gain insight into “your story.” Some people are encouraged by family , friends, or medical professionals to seek help. Seeking help takes courage and dedication. Together we will determine the goals of therapy and explore the presenting problem while promoting self-actualization, empowering self-growth, improving relationships, and reducing emotional suffering.

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.
