I absolutely love working with families! I still wish I had help of sorts when growing up in my own family. Counseling could have spared us alot of unnecessary pain and helped us to understand what was happening and what we could do about it. It is difficult for families to break away from habits and patterns that have naturally developed over the years without some outside help. Counseling offers abundant education, awareness, new ways of thinking and ideas on how to get more of what you want when it comes to your family. For most families, understanding, communication, mutual goals, compromise and peace are what they desire. My approach is tailored to each individual families needs.

Family conflict, communication difficulties, intercultural issues, blended families, and many other scenarios affect families today. Whether one member of a family is struggling, or many, the whole family may experience distress. I believe in helping the system to gain health, instead of pointing out one person as the problem. Allow me to walk along side your family during this difficult time and move towards a healthier happier family life.

Families impact one another every day, even when they are miles apart. In my practice I use insight based techniques to see how we have learned to relate to one another and how we can change this. Hopefully this will lead to great family communication, bonding and support for each individual. Certain life changes can be very taxing on the family and it's important to have a well developed support system in this transition. Let me be part of that support and help your family grow.

Patterns in families can be long standing and hard to shift. Often times members in a family want the same thing, they just don't know how to go about getting it together. I teach skills in communication as well as listening. If you are struggling or fighting more than you want to within the family, having someone who can listen and mediate as well teaching skills is so beneficial.

With a Master's Degree in Marriage (Couples) and Family Therapy, I am equipped to help couples navigate through difficult relationship issues, such as communication blocks, lifestyle conflicts, infidelity, sexual addiction, and Internet addiction. Step-parenting and helping blended families form a cohesive unit is a specialty. I can work with your family individually and as a group. I hold workshops that are based on Susan Johnson’s “Hold Me Tight” program with video presentations of Susan Johnson working with couples who are learning the “Seven Conversations for a Life Time of Love”.
I work with families around issues of substance abuse and addiction, with or without the addict.

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.

Family therapy 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 and bring you closer together. As we work together I will help you look at your family's ability to solve problems and express thoughts and feelings. We may explore family roles, rules and behavior patterns to identify issues that contribute to conflict — as well as ways to work through these issues. I encouraged you to contact me to set up an appointment for counseling.

George Burns said "Happiness is having a happy, close knit family in another city." Can you relate to that quote? Many clients of mine can! As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Advanced Trained Gottman Couples Counselor in Portland, I work with each member of the family to better understand each other and how to get out of each other's way to create new possibilities for sanity, connection, and joy.
We forget that families are supposed to be both our launching pad and our safe and sacred landing spot, a refuge from the pressures and challenges of life. I teach new skills and ways of listening, interacting, and supporting each other to move from gridlock to renewed joy,

Clients who are having difficulties within their family are often surprised when they begin to understand that every member of the family (yes, even dogs and cats!) have developed fairly predictable roles within a bigger family system. It is like they are actors in a play that has been rehearsed over and over.
Once they understand these patterns and roles, we move forward by searching for the patterns that are positive and the ones that that are causing pain in the family system. "Would you be willing to change those entrenched roles, if it means that your family can regain some of it's balance, playfulness, and love?" I ask them. If the answer is yes, I find that families soon benefit.

I value each member of the family unit and encourage all voices to be heard in order for real change to happen. Often, one member of the family is singled out for being the "problem", when typically the problem is within the family system. I help families come to satisfactory solutions that they can live with. Topics discussed include: communication, power and control, boundaries, enmeshment, flexibility, family rules and secrets, and more.
To assist couples, specifically, I use an excellent tool called, "Prepare Enrich" to assess and strengthen relationship issues for married, engaged, or unmarried couples. You may learn more about this method at: https://www.prepare-enrich.com
