Reasons to talk to a marriage and family therapist

  Life is hard. Sometimes you need a person to talk to in confidence who can help you manage what's happening in your life. Whether it's a love relationship, loss of a loved one, a career transition, women's issues, parenting problems - the circumstances may vary, but one thing remains constant - you need to get on with the rest of your life and sometimes we need some guidance and support. I provide real and positive counseling, never hesitating to be direct when something is off and for finding laughter or a smile even at the toughest times.

Issues

Couples

  

...love is a continual process of seeking and losing emotional connection, and reaching out to find it again. The bond of love is a living thing. If we don't attend to it, it naturally begins to wither.

  

Using evidence-based therapy (EFT), you'll learn about the leading research and science of love, adult attachment patterns and the language of emotion. We will explore through structured conversations, the patterns in your relationship. These conversations will support you to interact in ways that nourish and deepen your relationship. 

The end of a relationship or relationship troubles can be life-shattering experiences. Whether it is sudden or years in the making, it is stressful and helpful to work with a therapist through it. In a comfortable and confidential space you will discover ways of managing and moving forward with your life. You will learn strengths and focus on the healthy and unhealthy behaviors that helped you survive life so far. ​

Approach

  

I am a results-oriented psychotherapist using brief, family systems, EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), solution-focused and CBT approaches towards helping you restructure your thought processes towards a more positive outlook. My style is empathic, collaborative, practical and goal-oriented.

I work with:

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19)
Adults (women/men/couples/parents/families)

 

Change

  

Change is invigorating and challenging. Having a resourceful guide through this process is invaluable. I enjoy working with couples, children and their families and individuals. I customize treatment for whatever your life issues are. We create goals together to tackle depression, anxiety, marriage/divorce issues and any interpersonal/family conflict.  A special feature of my practice is my work with trusted allies in related professions (medical professionals, etc.). This helps facilitate achievement of your goals.
