Even great families can need help. Teens sometimes get off track in the process of growing up. Family therapy works well to get parents and kids on the same team and moving in a positive direction. When divorce and remarriage impact a family, we can find ways to heal the past and create relationships where people get along with each other much better. I have years of experience working with families with teens, stepfamilies and blended families. I also work with families with all adult members regarding family businesses, money issues and aging parents/elder issues.

Family is an integral part of our life. They help shape and define our core values and beliefs, provide strength, love, and nurturing. Families can also come with negative patterns of behavior and communication. Whether it is helping a child/teen relate better with their parent, or helping an entire family unit, my goal is to create healthier and happier families.

If you have a family member struggling with an eating disorder, we can help your family work together to support the recovery process. Our approach can not only help your child or partner, but help strengthen bonds within the family and increase effective communication, compassion and understanding.

Working with several people at a time helps to support the entire family unit through issues of conflict, trauma, loss, divorce and other challenges. Sometimes, these issues may be related to one or more family members experiencing depression, anxiety or difficulty relating to others. If one is experiencing these issues, family members may be having a difficult time dealing with the stress and conflict related to the problem. My goal is to help you and your family overcome the challenges and pain related to these problems and encourage positive, meaningful connections with family members.

Being a family does not mean you will get along. Each member of the family has their own life, wants, desires, goals. How can you support each other instead of undermine them. Real Talk Therapy creates a zone for clear communication, with a mediator that manages the flow, and helps for grudges to be let go, values to be understood, and feelings and thoughts to be positive.

Problems in families can originate from a specific crisis or challenge, a family-wide conflict between two or more people, or the result of daily stress that builds up over time. When working with families, I strive to provide a balanced, nonjudgmental space so everyone can discuss their concerns. We will also work to improve your family's communication skills, identify and shift unhelpful thoughts and destructive behaviors, and increase your intimacy and connectedness with each other.

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 sometimes find themselves operating in patterns of relationships which leave the family exhausted, scared, frustrated and unable to function. Helping family members operate as healthy independent individuals in order to join and function with the family as a whole is often the first step. The next allows the family to learn how speak, to hear, to listen and to be able to tolerate each individual's differences. The third step is to help foster emotional safety in disagreements, build the connection and encourage vulnerability and resilience leading to deeper and stronger connections and functional interdependence in the family core.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

Every family has its own, unique culture; the way they do things. The culture created in a family tends to be a blend of your, mine, and our way of doing things. Our family of origin, ethnicity, faith tradition, education, past and current friends and relationships, past and current jobs, etc. all combine and blend to create our “stuff” we bring into our present. When our “stuff” blocks a family culture that mutually fosters emotional and physical safety, relationships break down and problems arise. My approach creates insight to the “stuff” that we need to keep and need to throw out; allowing for space to rebuild a family culture of respect, trust, connection, fun, and love.

Let’s be honest—parents don’t have all the answers, although they wish they did. But they always have a lot of heart and a lot of love for their children. When raising children becomes challenging—or even overwhelming—know that you are not alone. Sometimes parents need help with their children, adolescents, and teens. Every parent has questions about how to improve their parenting, deal with difficult situations, and strengthen family life. Our professional family counselors can give you the guidance you are looking for…and we will also be sure to remind you that if you are filled with a lot of love for your children then you really are a great parent already!

I am both honored and grateful to have graduated from an American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) accredited program. This implies that AAMFT has reviewed and approved all of the standards put in place for a student's education and training in family therapy. As a therapist, I integrate this training to understand what elements of structure, trust, security, and connection are currently jeopardized within the relationships in a family.

Houston, Texas 77069 | 832-375-1700

From the time we are born we take cues as to how to think act and feel from our family. As we grow older we become aware of our own separate thoughts and feelings. In some families, independent thinking is encouraged with healthy boundaries that allow for self-expression. In other families, children are taught, to take their cues as to what thoughts and feelings others think they should have. Human beings, struggle for balance, attempting to belong to the group without losing self in the process. We can love our families and honor that unique bond, while still learning to stand as an individual with a strong sense of self. It is with this dynamic in mind that I try to work with families.

Our family of origin affects everything about who we are. They are so important to us, yet can hold us back as well. As we develop healthy boundaries in all our family relationships, we can begin to find hope. Your marriage and children must be your priority over all other relationships except God. But baggage from the past, or unwanted interference from siblings and parents that is still going on today can cause so much damage. I can help you learn how to manage these relationships.

Family systems can be challenging to say the least. Each person in the family is continually changing and growing. This in turn puts the family dynamic in a constant state of change. Sometimes these changes can be difficult for the family and begin to create distance and quarreling. This can escalate quickly, and be very painful for those involved. I work with families who are going through difficult changes to help start the healing process.

When families are broken or distant the resulting hurt can often feel unbearable. Rifts in relationships may seem permanent, but the truth is that there is hope, forgiveness and restoration available for anyone seeking it! Our approach in family therapy focuses on repairing and restoring the family as a whole. It is never too late for this restoration to take place!

Family Therapy is often sought when the family dynamic has reached some level of dysfunction, & family members report feeling "stuck" in their ways & unsure how to move forward in a positive direction. By the time a family typically decides to seek counseling, the interpersonal relationships among family members have become so habitually toxic that expecting a family to find solutions to their troubles on their own is a fairly futile venture. Each family member is usually responsible for some level of the dysfunction, & this is what makes these issues "family issues." Using a family systems approach, you will (re)learn how to operate as a more cohesive & emotionally connected family unit.

My approach to family therapy includes looking at every member's contributions to the success or failures that are being presented in session. We would explore family structure and family dynamics. It is very important to understand the "complete" family to understand them as a "whole" unit. Dysfunctional patterns of communication would be a priority.

I am a trained and licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I have been practicing from this perspective for 16 years. Working with families of any size in the room allows for change in a different way than individual counseling does. As all parties work develop and work toward a common goal, the process of therapy provides possibility for greater change. Family therapy allows for learning different ways of communicating to others as well as hearing and being heard differently. "Practicing" new communication tools in the therapy room strengthens the end result in the home and at work. Not only do you learn about yourself on a deeper level, you learn about your other family members as well

A focus on the family becomes an important part of the therapeutic work for many clients. After all, we do not live in a vacuum. The relationships we have play a critical, and at times, inextricable role in the ups and downs of life. As such, the work I do with families comes in many forms. This may be a part of individual work, or I may start by seeing a family as a whole. Typically, the focus is on learning strategies for developing healthy, harmonious relationships. These strategies typically involve conflict management skills, learning effective communication, how to self-soothe, and how to develop the friendship that underlies each of these areas.

As part of my counseling practice, I provide therapy for families, including work with adult children, parents, and siblings. I help families learn new ways of communicating together and how to develop new dynamics within the family system. Identifying which roles each person plays within the family unit can be especially helpful to find how those roles are affecting each other. In addition, I have experience working with families who have a member struggling with addiction. Addiction can have long-lasting effects on each member of the family. I truly believe there is hope for positive change.

Your family interactions may be challenging to the point that you are ready to seek help. Family therapy can help ease some of the tension through open, respectful communication about feelings and needs. When children are involved, we may utilize filial therapy, which involves parents learning a way of interacting with the children that facilitates healing through play. Whether you are seeking support for your marriage relationship, working on relationship issues with children of any age, or relationship challenges with parents, understanding and improved communication skills can help resolve conflict. You are welcome to call to schedule an appointment.

Home is where the heart is. Well worn sayings get that way because they are true! Not surprisingly, hope, connectivity, safety, attunement, learning, sorrow, pain and alienation live together in varying degrees in our lives...and families. Checking in to see how we thrive or fail can be a compelling and challenging ride. Good therapy provides clarity, compassion and well-proven technique that enlivens and cements our quest for connection and a sense of comfort and growth. You'll find all of the above here. I look forward to hearing from you - as we walk together toward that special place!
