Not currently accepting new patients**AFTER-HOURS 5:30pm-7:30pm AND WEEKEND ONLY** Have you found yourself stuck in rut? Feeling like you are living in auto-pilot? Knowing you have goals and wants in life but not knowing a plan can be very frustrating. Sometimes feeling overwhelmed by either too many options or thinking there aren’t enough. Sometimes you might find yourself angry at your situation, your friends, family, or even yourself.
The couple subsystem is the very foundation to which the family system is built upon. If this foundation is weak or unstable, the family will fall apart. I believe that in order for a family to thrive, the couple must have a strong and healthy relationship. Couples work has the ability to impact other areas of therapy such as family work and work with children. The function or dysfunction of the family system is directly related to the functionality of the couple. The couple's relationship and communication style, effects their resilience or ability to work through or withstand crisis.
I believe each client possesses the wisdom and resilience needed to be successful in therapy. My job is to help you connect the threads of your story in a way that shines light on what needs to change, and to suggest evidence-based steps to make those changes. I’ll ask good questions, listen fully and offer tangible ways to meet your goals. I’ll bring respect and genuine curiosity to our sessions, always remembering that you are in charge of the direction of therapy.
I work with adults as well as children/teens from age 9-17 years old. I have personal knowledge and experience with individuals in public safety, hospital staff, military, and first responders. I can relate to the stress and strain that type of work causes in your personal and professional life. I am trained in Compassion Fatigue and Burnout (CCFP) that can help you enjoy work and activities again. My experience in that area has transitioned well over to helping others. Depression, anxiety, relationships, communication are all hidden issues when you think it is just being tired or “worn out” from your work.
