My specialties include anxiety, depression, adjusting to change, anger management, impulse control disorders, parenting, marriage and family issues.
Life is often the most stressful when things are unpredictable and out of our control. So, it's not unusual, with the state of the world today, we might be feeling more stressed than we normally do. Things you've been able to cope with in the past you might be finding more difficult to handle. That's a normal response to a very abnormal situation. In times like this, we have to focus on what we can control and learn to cope with things we can't change. My role is to assist you in the process

Are you experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression? Being stuck in a toxic situation, especially with a person or people who are narcissistic or manipulative, makes you doubt everything. When you’ve been in a bad situation for so long— whether it’s a toxic relationship, job, family , religious group, or other organization— it can feel like there’s no way out. It is common to feel confused and physically and emotionally drained. You might feel fragile, unsure of yourself and unable to trust. You might be experiencing problems with sleep, digestion and panic attacks.

from Texas Tech University in Couple, Marriage, and Family Therapy .
My goal as a clinician is to join you on your healing journey. During times of difficulty, it can feel as though we are walking through the swampland of our souls. My hope is to throw on some rain boots and take that trek with you! My therapeutic theory is that we as individuals are not defined by our struggles, but that we are whole, healthy individuals. It is important that we work collaboratively against these struggles and rediscover those whole and healthy identities. My particular areas of interest include eating disorders, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

If you are wrestling with relationship issues with others - marriage, parenting/co-parenting, divorce, infidelity, secrecy, blended family issues, emotional abuse or childhood trauma, or if you are wrestling with relational issues within yourself - shame, identity, self-harm, anxiety, and depression, call me.
Relationships provide a window to the heart of an individual like no other. Our closest relationships tend to reveal our most wounded places. Those hurts, if left unresolved, are carried forward and recast into our exiting patterns of relating. All our experiences, but most particularly our pain, become the filter through which we sift and construct our view of self, our approach to life, our capacity love and be loved, and our ability to 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.
