My strengths include working with children, adolescents and adults with personal crisis, depression, relationship and family issues, divorce, life transitions, trauma, grief and loss.
Each of us struggles with a variety of issues throughout our lives, and the decision to seek counseling is the first courageous step toward healing and cultivating a satisfying life. Some enter counseling during a time of crisis, while others seek counseling to overcome conflicts, explore relationships, or to attain a greater authenticity. I work to help each of my clients to become more self-aware and to obtain new insights or coping skills so that they can move forward to foster healthy relationships and to create more happiness and peace.

I enjoy working with adolescents and adults who are struggling with anxiety/depression, low self-esteem and trauma, as well as individuals and couples preparing for marriage and who may be experiencing concerns such as communication challenges, conflict management, sexual issues, or family of origin issues.
Let's be honest. Life can seem hopeless at times. Between the pressures that the world puts on us, and the pressure we put upon ourselves, expectations can feel overwhelming. Am I a good parent? Is my marriage working? Am I getting the most out of my career choices? Why don't I ever have peace in my life? There are also times in our lives when we could use the assistance of a helper. Someone that can help us understand and work through all of our challenges. To be a part of this process is truly an honor. And, as a Mental Health Practitioner, I have had the privilege of helping many individuals, couples and families.

My goal is to help your family find your happy again and get you guys working together as a functional unit.
I specialize in children and parenting. If your child has high anxiety, seems sad or withdrawn, or has had behavior changes, you might consider counseling. Sometimes the older kids just need someone besides family to talk to about what's going on. If your child is particularly challenging, maybe they have a lot of meltdowns, is aggressive, sad, or has had a traumatic event occur then I may be able to help. Has your child had a lot of medical procedures? Play therapy could help. If you are college-aged & lost or stressed/depressed/anxious, we can work together to get you back on track.

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.
