I also have a passion for working with those in unique family situations, whether its those who have been forced into a caretaker role or having a family member with special needs.
If you’re reading this, you might be considering change and I can also appreciate how you might still be on the fence about therapy. Uncertainty and change can be anxiety provoking. Maybe you’ve been hurt in previous relationships or have had a negative experience with therapy. Society teaches us to not talk about our feelings. Some of us are taught to sort through problems logically to find a reasonable solution or to push all struggles aside like they aren’t real. It can be difficult for us to be vulnerable and begin seeking help.

Seven years of School Counseling experience gives me a unique perspective to address school behaviors and family dynamics.
My number one passion is parent coaching... Every child is different and parents often need a specific skillset to parent effectively. I'm trained in trauma and resiliency counseling - many experiences can be traumatic - hurricanes, flooding, divorce, accidents, assault, chronic pain, work issues - even COVID is considered traumatic to some people. Anxiety and depression are increasing as the long-term effects of COVID are being discovered. I offer half-price to First Responders as a "thank you" for putting their lives on the line everyday for our community.

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.
