Hello!

I love working with people and helping my clients reach their goals. I mostly engage my clients in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is an evidence-based approach which involves looking at how your daily thoughts impact your life and learning new ways to think and react. I believe in using this approach combined with focusing on my client's strengths and building upon them.

I have specialized training to assist parents & children with common goals and improving family relationships.
Are you spending all day running around to keep your world from falling apart? Is your big bright smile and positive attitude a suit of armor to conceal the fire inside? Do you keep yourself busy to avoid any moment of silence because that is where the fire hides? When the fire gets too big does it leave you feeling alone, weak, and vulnerable? My job is to help unleash the power you possess to put out the fires you’re facing.

Being brave enough to take that first step to tell your story and find solutions to concerns and struggles that you may be facing can be difficult. You should be proud that you have taken that first step. You made a tough decision. Calling a therapist can seem to be overwhelming but I will do everything that I can to make you feel comfortable and at ease while finding solutions for yourself, your family , or making decisions that can be daunting. You did it! You stepped out and took the opportunity to find other ways of dealing with the struggles, traumas, and unhappiness so many people are facing today.

I approach counseling from a cognitive behavioral perspective, meaning that I believe that our thoughts produce our feelings and our feelings produce our behaviors. However, I also use EMDR and Internal Family Systems in combination with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to give my clients a range of avenues to find their healing. I try to make every session practical and productive. I have also written a book, "Forgive and Live", which I use in group therapy and has recently been re-written as a video series.

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.
