Families go through periods of time in which they need help. Do you feel that your family is struggling and you feel lost in how to help? I am a Family Therapist and have a unique talent of helping families find new ways to connect in meaningful ways. If your family is experiencing troubled times don't wait for it to get worse. I will help you find a way to navigate through these difficult times and learn ways of communicating so that each person feels valued, loved and accepted. I work from a systems perspective and can help you identify strengths of your family system and more importantly find ways of reconnecting in a meaningful way.

When there is chaos in the family, there is often feelings of not being understood, heard, or hurt. Family therapy can be very beneficial to provide new ways to communicate, When there is effective communication, conflict decreases and satisfaction within the family and interpersonal respect increases. Individually, self-esteem and self-regulation of emotions also increases. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental setting to train the family in new communication styles, creating new patterns within the family dynamics.
