Is your family stressed out and having trouble understanding each other? Do you have a family member who is struggling? Has a recent life event affected your family? Are you having a difficult time expressing yourself?
With gratitude, I welcome you to my counseling website. Making the decision to seek therapeutic advice can be a humbling experience. My goal is to help you and your family feel safe in meeting you where you are at during the delicate journey you are on.
If you are experiencing feelings of sadness, worry, anger, loss, difficulty with relationships, or extreme stress or pressure, seeking professional guidance may be the answer for you or one you care about. When feelings and behaviors can be expressed in a safe environment, healing begins to take place. Finding a licensed therapist who is a good match for your family is very important.
Family therapy can be effective to:
• Strengthen relationships among family members.
• Improve communication and reduce conflict patterns.
• Support children and parents during life transitions.
• Reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress in youth and parents.
• Support youth with challenging behaviors.
• Provide family support to an individual youth that is having difficulty.
I have had success in working with youth and families with unique and challenging experiences, but I also want to make sure my style truly meets your need. I approach the therapeutic relationship as you are the expert in your life and I am joining you on your journey toward healthy self-discovery and positive change. I provide a collaborative, non-intimidating, peaceful, safe and confidential environment for your family to express your feelings. When humans connect with each other through empathic relationships, beautiful and rewarding transformations happen.
Perhaps you are a parent who’s child is not willing or able to attend counseling. I work directly with parents in order to provide coaching and support in order to help families thrive.
Whatever led you to me, thank you for taking the opportunity to read more about me and my practice. May your heart feel whole, your spirit be understood, and your mind be at peace.
