My interest in family counseling came from studying the dynamics which make up a family, sometimes for many generations. Patterns exist as a result of shared beliefs (or rules like in my family of origin). Each family member has their own way of understanding what takes place and by using conjoint family therapy, everyone has a voice from the oldest to the youngest. As a therapist, I provide an environment for exploration, curiosity & opportunity to create better choices and which patterns the family as a whole find beneficial.

Your family is the center of your world. When there is sadness or conflict within your family it is difficult to feel good about life. I want to help your family heal and grow. As a family therapist I help individuals and couples overcome life's challenges including divorce or affairs. Marriage counseling can help you learn to communicate more effectively and to feel closer and more connected to your spouse. Many families have challenges. With commitment and patience we can work to overcome the challenges in your family. We can restore the passion and affection that you once shared. I know this is not easy. But your family is worth the effort. Love grows here.

We're shaped by our relationships with our family members for life. Healthy families share certain core traits. In families that thrive, people share a willingness to change and to own their part in creating conflict, yet feel safe enough to express differences in feelings and beliefs. Whether a family is struggling with chronic conflict or emotional distance, the process of family therapy is a powerful vehicle for change. I help families increase awareness of current patterns and develop new ways of relating and interacting. While the process of family therapy is different for each family, the goals remain the same: to improve communication, increase trust, and strengthen family bonds.

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.

Families quite often are going through various changes simultaneously, some more impacting than others. Babies are born, family members get married and may bring new families with them, siblings move away, and parents get older. I like to work with families and support them as they navigate and manage these changes, and continue to redefine their relationships with one another.

Growing together with our loved ones can be an amazing gift. Somewhere along the line we sometimes struggle with those closest to us. We may bring our old emotional issues into a new relationship or perhaps we find our old ways of communicating with our loved one is no longer working the way it used to. Change is difficult but taking steps to increase communication and sort out our old beliefs that no longer serve us, can bring new light and joy to the relationships we cherish.

Family therapy is full of richness. All families are different yet very much the same. There are many different dynamics at work with families. There are parent and sibling sub-systems, coalitions and alignments within families. Families can be very complex units yet very enriching to their members. I enjoy working with families, especially the challenges of the developmental life stages, birth, toddlers, young adolescents, young adults, mid-life, old age. Each offers their unique challenges. The benefits come with setting clear goals, objectives, rules, consequences to breaking the rules and developing open and respectful lines of communication.

Many times, it is difficult to find a balance within the family unit. Often times, each individual is unable to recognize or understand the others, and as such, conflict often occurs. Family therapy allows a safe environment for all members to feel respected and heard. Emphasis is placed on helping to identify needs and expectations of one another and work toward achieving individual and family goals in session.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

My approach to family therapy begins with using my training to determine who, in addition to the primary client, needs treatment. Sessions may include various family configurations (both parents, one parent and child, members of extended family, or a single individual) and treatment includes strategic family therapy to improve communication and resolve underlying conflict.

People seek out family therapy when they are faced with challenges in their relationships, raising children, and problems involving extended family and friends. Adopting a relationship perspective, I do not negate the significance of individual intra-psychic of human relationships, or the family social system. If you are currently experiencing a challenging situation with your immediate, or extended, family it might be worth considering the kind of professional support marriage and family counseling can provide.
