I help families
navigate through the pressures of life.
A lot of times parents bring their child in to see a therapist and present them as a problem but the truth is the teens behavior is just a symptom of a larger issue that is taking place in the family system as a whole.
You can’t change the symptom without dealing with the system that facilitated or influenced the symptom. This is why I am here, to help you undo the impact of dysfunctional behavior patterns that have been passed down from generations to generations that might be unknowingly impacting you and your family.
Families are a living organism
That need time, attention and nuturing

When a family member is struggling with mental health issues, it can be very challenging for everyone else in the family. Family members may feel like they don’t know how to help, or they may feel guilty because they think that their loved one’s struggles are somehow their fault.
Family therapy is a way for you to learn how to cope with your loved one’s mental illness while still supporting them and keeping your other relationships healthy.
I am here to help you navigate through this difficult time. I help clients understand what is going on with their loved one and give you tools so that you feel empowered to support them in their recovery process without losing yourself along the way.
Family therapy typically brings several family members together for therapy sessions.
Sessions typically take about 50 minutes to an hour. Family therapy is often short term — generally about 12 sessions. However, how often you meet and the number of sessions you'll need will depend on your family's particular situation and my recommendation.
During family therapy, you will:
Examine your family's ability to solve problems and express thoughts and emotions in a productive manner.
Explore family roles, rules and behavior patterns to identify issues that contribute to conflict — and ways to work through these issues.
Identify your family's strengths, such as caring for one another, and weaknesses, such as difficulty confiding in one another.
