Family therapy will help you develop skills to deepen family connections & get through stressful times, whether some or all family members attend. Family therapy is designed to help you improve troubled relationships with your spouse, children, or other family members. Specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents & children, or the effects of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family, when addressed, can bring family members closer. It can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better & bring you closer together. I welcome your inquiry.

Relationships with those we love are some of the most significant factors in our happiness and mental well-being. Disharmony in relationships – partners, family or friends – causes frustration and sadness, but psychotherapy can help. I meet with couples, siblings, parents and children - often together - but there are times when other people in our relationships are unavailable or unwilling to seek therapy. Nevertheless, therapy can still help individuals resolve relationship problems even if those others aren't present. Sometimes, despite all our best efforts, a relationship needs to end. In that case, I help individuals and families navigate the challenges of break-ups and divorce.

When families come into counseling together they can be under extraordinary amounts of stress. One or sometimes all members of the family can be acting in ways that do not align with the values they believe in. We will create a family mission statement, determine values, and then work on correcting the individual behaviors that are creating distress. Family counseling can be fun at times, and children appreciate the use of games and my gentle, hypoallergenic therapy dog in sessions. I use humor in my sessions with teenagers to keep them engaged and break down their walls. Imagine coming home to a peaceful household where you feel supported, appreciated, and loved.
