Sometimes families need a third party to help them communicate and improve family relationships. Whether its because of a change in family structure, a family member's behavior, or parents wishing to improve relationships with their children, I enjoy working with families to encourage open communication and develop healthy boundaries within their family unit.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

I am a certified educator in the Gottman Institute's Bringing Baby Home Program. This is a researched-based approach to preparing couples for the arrival of a baby and/or helping couples adjust after the baby arrives. I believe one of the greatest gifts parents can give a child is the gift of a healthy marriage. I approach family therapy from a systems perspective and believe that the entire family unit plays a critical role in child development, self-esteem, and relational abilities.

Individuals do not exist in a vacuum, everyone is a part of a larger unit. Our closest and most enduring unit is the family unit. As a child we learn to interact much the same way our family interacts. If change is needed in the dynamics of the family unit because of poor communication or an individual problem that has grown to encompass the whole unit then an intervention from the outside can give new perspective and new hope to sometimes a very demoralizing situation.

Often it is important for both parent(s) and their children to meet with me in order to improve their communication and work together to solve problems. We all make this decision on a case by case basis. The child must feel comfortable with this next step. Usually, this occurs after I've already developed a relationship with the child and we have a foundation of trust.. Then they can practice the strategies and skills that we talk about in therapy while they're at home. I find that this can expedite a child's progress and reap many benefits for the family relationship.

I enjoy working with families as they work together in finding solutions and what works for them as a unit. I provide a safe and warm environment where each person of the family can express their feelings, discuss choices and strengths. Each family is different and may experience different issues such as behavioral issues, divorce, separation, blended families, adoption, post adoption, child custody, loss/death etc. I as your therapist promise to work with you as a family unit to help you find solutions and work through problems to help you be your best self.

Family counseling can be necessary when conflicts between siblings or between parents and siblings become disruptive to the family group. When this happens, it is beneficial for the entire family to come in for sessions together. It is important for everyone in the family to give their point of view on the difficulties and say what they feel needs to change. Here are just a few areas that we would cover in family counseling: -Help parents learn to listen to their children -Teach children there are consequences for their choices -Educate parents and children on the importance of being accountable to each other -Help children take responsibility forfor their actions

I like to help people get a long better. Relationships are vitally important to our existence as human beings and they are highly valued by our Creator God. Learning how to love one another - especially those within our own family - is paramount. My desire is to restore proper boundaries, help mediate conflict, and to empower parents and children.

I work with adult families on areas of boundaries, support, and estrangement. I'm particularly interested in helping clients find the appropriate balance of individuality and togetherness in their family relationships. Whether you're feeling like you need some space from your family, or you find yourself distancing more than you'd like we can work together to help you find the right balance. I also work with separating couples on issues of co-parenting and emotional divorce. Please note that I do not see minor children but am able to make the appropriate referral.

All of us live in a system; we are affected by others, events, environments all around us. No one us should be viewed as the source of the problem. I work to not only help the client heal, adjust, understand, adjust as needed, and become the person the can and want to be, but also to help the environment around them to be as supportive and healed as it can be as well. This includes working with multiple family members to help them understand the relationships they desire, the dynamics that will make the happy and how they can together achieve these.
