I work with parents together and individually to help them understand family structure and dynamics and to make healthy changes in parenting techniques, such as setting boundaries, practicing consistency, using choices and consequences appropriately, and practicing loving detachment. I observe parents and children together and teach effective communication skills. I use art and play therapy with children to encourage emotional expression and processing and to practice relationship skills in the clinical setting. Neuro-Integration and Emotional Freedom Technique support emotional integration, regulation, and coping.

If your family is struggling with someone using drugs or alcohol or is experiencing issues related to trauma and abuse (physical/sexual, divorce/separation, neglect/abandonment, mental illness, incarceration), I welcome the invitation to explore how your family can move toward a sense of deeper commitment and healing. I have a over a decade experience working with individuals, in both outpatient and Department of Corrections settings, who have endured adverse family experiences. With a combination of both trauma education and counseling, my goal is to help families communicate better, function more effectively and build a feeling of unity.

I believe in working with individuals as well as family members in therapy. Often I tell parents that I may be the expert in areas of counseling theory, developmental issues, parenting strategies or play and filial therapy, but they are the "experts" on their children. Together, we will work to find ways for the individuals or the family system to change and grow together in healthier unity.

There are a lot of different types of families. There are families of origin, blended families, two different home families, adopted families and grandparents raising grandchildren families. Sometimes conflict arises within the structure of a family unit. My expertise is with teaching parenting skills, dealing with divorce and separation, taking care of elderly parents, bringing home a new child whether infant or adopted, and work or school related issues. I can help you find and focus on the solution.

Today's families are complex and range from an intact family unit to blended families of multiple origins. I use Structural Family Therapy to help the family align themselves for success. I work with the parents to help them be in charge of their children and help them put their children in an appropriate role. Blended families have particular challenges that they face and I help the parents help their children through acceptance and transition of the new family structure.

My strength and focus when working with your family is to hear what the problem is and provide you with a solution that your family can benefit from. When working with families, I understand that their are many voices wanting to be heard and different personalities clashing. That is why - I work to help each involved family member with tools and strategies on how to manage their areas of concern and that of the whole family. Give me a call today to explore what it is that may be impacting your family and how I can help. I understand that the process of "shopping" for a counselor is lengthy - difficult - and a bit scary --- but so is the alternative of continuing on.

Families sometimes get stuck in ways of relating that are hurtful. When looking at a family, I first understand the stage of development they are at. A young couple with young children is not the same as older couple with teenagers, or adult family that work together. Within each particular context, I try to work and strengthen each subsystem (sibling/parental) as well as the dyadic relationships (father/mother-son/daughter, sibling-sibling). This helps create bonds and special connections among all family members inevitably leading to new positive ways of interacting.

Family Therapy usually consists of learning healthy ways to communicate so that problem solving becomes much easier. In my practice, I have been able to help family members improve their understanding of one another by simply offering helpful strategies that have been researched over time and have been founded to be helpful. Family members learn that if things are not going well within the family dynamics that it is not only important but healthy to get help from a professional so that they learn skills to communicate with one another better. Parents learn ways to model healthy communication patterns with their children and their children will model these same patterns in the future.

Families work best when everyone functions in his and her proper role. This means that parents need to be in charge, children need to know what is expected of them and to be given increasing freedom as they move through adolescence, and grandparents need to be "honored" in an advisory (only) role. When grandparents meddle or disempower parents or when children are in charge, problems arise.
