Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

The "Family Crucible" as coined by the late Carl Whitaker, can be the greatest source of strength in our lives or it can be a source of pain. Our families of origin are always part of us for the rest of our lives. Family therapy helps us to discover who we are and who we want to become as a differentiated person apart from my family. It helps us to grow up and take responsibility for our own lives apart from family influence allowing us to make decisions about our lives, our relationships, and our decisions in general. As a Family Therapist I help people distinguish between healthy and unhealthy families and guide them in their quest for the healthy family they so desire.
