As families change over time, patterns of relationships are created to cope with stress, fear and dissonance. Often these coping strategies cover up the real issue which inevitably creates more distance. I see families as the foundation of our society and it is my passion to help empower and equip them with the tools and abilities to create a new path instead of retreading the existing one.

Family relationships can reach difficult places. Due to long-standing patterns of conflict, it can be emotionally difficult to improve parent-child and sibling relationships. I believe in the importance of facilitating mutual understanding for all parties involved in which each other feels respect and care from the other. I also teach communication skills and help family members constructively work together to improve intimacy and resolve problems.

No matter what the family issue you are facing, I believe always helps to talk about it with someone who can stand by your side and help you sort through it. You may want to come in with your whole family, or you may want to come in alone to get some support...either way, I strive to create a safe place where you can talk about what is bothering you, and we can work through it together to figure out resources, tools, approaches, etc that will help your family move forward.

There’s nothing that can bring us quite as much joy--or, at times, as much pain--as our families. Family therapy can be extremely effective because as family members offer their “take” on the problem, they indirectly become part of the solution. The families I work with often enjoy better communication with each other and a new-found mutual respect and appreciation. They also enjoy passing these things along to the next generation.

Our families of origin are where we learn how to see the world, people and relationships. When families encounter significant stress or change - such as the loss of a member of or a change in status through divorce or remarriage - it can be difficult to regain equilibrium. Often it is reassuring for families to learn that what they are dealing with is normal, and given some coping strategies they can regain their good functioning. Some families need help with communication issues, appropriate boundaries, parenting strategies, or dealing with aging parents or members with alcohol and drug issues. Whatever the case may be, creater deeper understanding between family members is always key.

Clients benefit from Family Counseling when everyone feels loved and respected. By providing an objective viewpoint, education, and especially working on clear communication skills and boundaries, as well as understanding the true meanings of giving grace and practicing forgiveness rather than just revenge or retaliation, the family can experience unity and a team spirit.

As a parent, you know your child better than anyone else. Yet sometimes family distress clouds our abilities to navigate effectively. As a therapist but also a wife and mother, I understand how troubling family distress can be upon every member of the family. I have done extensive research and speaking on the topics of childhood attachment and how family relationships develop and thrive. If you are a parent looking for ways to understand and respond more effectively within the midst of family stress, I would love to help.

Is your family out of control? Is communication non-existent in your home? Do you long for peace and harmony? If so, you'll likely benefit from family therapy. When families come to see me we talk about the whole family, not just one or two individuals. I believe conflict in the home involves everyone, therefore family therapy should involve everyone too. I will address everyone and challenge everyone to work on their contribution to the conflict. We'll address negative patterns that develop and how to replace them with positive ones. You'll learn how to resolve conflict in a healthy way and how to communicate without fighting. Call me and let's talk about a plan of action for your family.

Family systems. The secret underground network of sewage that no one wants to talk about. But its there, waiting for you to speak truth about what happened behind closed doors. I like to offer encouragement and kindness as clients bravely open old doors they haven't touched in years. It can be terrifying, but not impossible. Clients and I have discovered whole rooms of debris that slowly needing sifting in the dark. It takes courage, but you don't have to do it alone.

Similarly to the way all the parts of a car engine function together to make the vehicle run, family members have specific roles they fill that cause the family to operate the way it does. Families will benefit from family counseling because when something is wrong within the family system, every member can benefit from change. The good news about family therapy is that when one person begins to change, it effects change in everyone.
