Adult, Couple, and Family Therapist

As an adult, couple, and family therapist, I enjoy working with adults individually or in couple’s therapy to help them work towards their life goals. I also enjoy working with children, teenagers, and their families to help them increase experiences of connection and trust. I primarily work from family systems, trauma focused, and strength-based perspectives.

I work closely with parents, offering functional behavior analyses, parenting strategies, and ongoing parenting support to assist in developing advanced parenting skills to address their children’s behaviors. I provide children therapy within the family context.

I offer school advocacy services to help families access educational support and services such as IEP’s and 504 Plans and to address bullying issues. I also help children who struggle with symptoms of ADHD to develop and strengthen executive functioning skills.

I provide couple’s therapy primarily by helping couples understand and shift their relational patterns to increase individual responsibility and relational connection. As a Gottman Bringing Baby Home Educator, I enjoy working with couples as they transition to parenthood through birth, adoption, or by the creation of blended families.  Additionally, I work with separated/divorced couples to develop effective co-parenting relationships.
