Healthy family relationships are the foundation for happiness and success. We can find incredible joy and satisfaction in our families, but they can also be a source of great heartache and stress. With the right support and guidance, we can make it through these tough times together and come out of them with stronger relationships and closer connections.
Teens experience immense pressure from school and extracurricular activities, their families, and peers. Adolescence is such an exciting time of self-discovery, exploring interests, and developing close friendships. These changes can also be daunting and scary for teens and their parents and cause tension in family relationships. I am passionate about providing guidance, coping skills, and a supportive listening ear to teens and their families as they navigate these exciting and turbulent years.
I am also devoted to helping couples rediscover the potential of their relationship. Healthy marriages and romantic relationships provide deep joy and satisfaction. I am committed to helping you reconnect and rebuild your partnership in a safe space. I can help you change destructive patterns, improve your communication, and grow together from the challenges you are facing.
My integrative systemic approach to therapy draws strongly from solution-focused and attachment theories. The positive, strength-based approach of solution-focused therapy empowers clients to draw on their own strengths in a way that allows them to make lasting changes.
