Families deserve therapists that are trained in and experienced in family therapy. When there is more than one family member in my office, my training and experience helps me help you. Every family member wants to be understood and validated. And the wonderful thing about family therapy is that change can happen much faster, because everyone is working towards a happier shared life.

The family therapy I do is in situations when a child or teen is acting out. A child or teen might be defiant, or aggressive, or failing in school, or in trouble with the law or abusing substances or lying excessively or acting promiscuously, or some combination of these and other negative behaviors. The family therapy I do is preceded by a thorough and state-of-the art evaluation of both the youth and the youth's system. I then set measurable goals with a family and follow it up with behaviorally oriented family therapy. In this approach, there are specific and structured strategies brought to bear and home, and often and school, to enhance a child or teen's odds of being highly successful.
