The journey of life is filled with joy, disappointments, loss and renewal.

It is essential to view the presented problems and pain as part of a larger system (famly of origin and extended family).

Family therapy is often times a necessary extention to individual therapy. Families are supposed to work as a system. Sometimes the system breaks down and one member may be viewed as the broken piece. Until the system comes together to work through what is really happening the problem often persists. In therapy together we can look at your system as a whole. Let's open lines of communication between family members, improve your relationships and begin enjoying your lives together again.

When a loved one has an addiction or alcohol problem, the whole family suffers. The impact may not be immediately evident, but it is there, festering and creating anger, resentment, insecurity and other emotional and often financial issues. Families often feel beat up by the addict and then beat up by the treatment centers, who offer addict focused education and minimal family treatment. Who is supporting you, the family, when your family weekend is over? You loved one is released from treatment with an aftercare plan. What is your aftercare plan? Living with a newly recovering person doesn’t have to mean walking on eggshells. Compassionate family focused education, coaching and therapy help families heal and create lives worth living.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

I focus on specific relationships , rather than the entire family. Like I do in couples work, I would see the two of you both together and individually. I evaluate these cases carefully to make sure that I would be able to be of service to both of you. Usually whatever is going wrong has a long history, and we will unravel that. It may take a bit of time, but can be done if you are willing and patient.

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.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I bring specialized experience in working with families with a wide variety of needs. Our family system, both past and present and cultural traditions have a great influence on us individually and in our relations to others. We will focus on issues of communication, boundaries, parenting of children and teens, rules, behavior in and out of the home, effects of divorce, remarriage, blending step families, and life transitions.

My approach to family therapy is to look for the source of the family conflict. After over 37 years of practice, I can usually zero in on what is going on. Sometimes one parent is out of control. Sometimes parents are in conflict over child-rearing practices; one is too permissive and one too strict. Sometimes one child is favored over another. I generally meet with the whole family over a period of time, encouraging honest and constructive communication. Through patient guidance, the problems surface and are worked out.
