I am trained as a family therapist. I use a combination of structural, communication, and solution focused family therapy. In a session I teach clients how to become aware when they are reacting and how to practice emotional regulation techniques to stay calm. I also explain how their emotional brain is different than their cognitive brain and how to work with their brain to function at their best and how to enhance their relationship with each other to feel more connected and have fun together.

About half of my clients are couples seeking help in their relationship. I help each partner to take responsibility for their contribution to the issues and difficulties that bring a couple to therapy. "Communication" is the most commonly mentioned issue. The couple learns how to argue fairly, how to express their needs and desires effectively, and how to listen to each other. Sometimes they accomplish these things very quickly, while in other cases it takes a considerable amount of time.

I believe in the power of an effective family. They can be our greatest refuge and sanctuary in the times of storm. Families can sometimes become "stuck" when the system isn't allowed to grow and develop appropriately and when boundaries are not effectively implemented, understood and respected. I will work with you and your family to resolve conflict, understand and then build upon your strengths.

At Thriveworks, we recognize that not all families are perfect and counseling can strengthen familial bonds. Our clinicians will assist families with inter-relational issues, dysfunctional family roles, communication styles, blended family challenges, and parenting skills. Common modalities include family systems approaches, narrative therapy, trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. Families will learn how to effectively validate one another, how to provide empathy, and how to achieve a healthy environment to improve the quality of the family life.
