Family Therapy

Family Therapy is appropriate for families who are struggling with conflict, emotional disconnection, parenting challenges and sibling rivalry. This approach may also benefit children and adolescents with behavior concerns. Family therapy can also be useful for blended families working to attain a healthy transition to new family structures. Sessions will often include involved family members simultaneously. Typical areas of focus are  improved communication, closer connection, family restructuring, healthier attachment and boundary setting.  I use a combination of models to achieve growth and change including structural-strategic, attachment-based, emotionally focused and experiential family therapy. Clients can expect space to voice their perceptions and concerns, collaborate on common goals, and partake in family growth as a group effort. 

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy can be beneficial to those seeking personal growth and development. One on one therapy can be best for clients wanting to explore a deeper sense of self, address depression, anxiety , anger, trauma, or seek individual relational support. Individual therapy can sometimes be appropriate for older children and teens who are looking for a space to explore their feelings and identities. This work can be a bridge to future parent-child sessions. I use an eclectic approach to individual therapy pulling from a number of models such as CBT, Mindfulness training, emotionally focused, internal family systems, and person centered humansitic approaches based off of individual client needs and preferences.  NOW OFFERING EMDR.

Parent Coaching

Parent coaching supports parents to be their best selves and navigate the challenges of parenting children and teens. Session work supports parental emotion regulation techniques, an awareness of parenting styles, techniques to foster emotional health in children and ways to set healthy and appropriate boundaries. Sessions may include more than one parent and may include children when needed.

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a useful approach for children (and sometimes adults too!) Since play is the natural way children communicate, play therapy fosters communication in children. In play therapy, children are allowed to express themselves freely through art, building, games, and role play. Attunement and reflection are utilized to support children to master esteem,emotional awareness, problem solving and self agency. Through play children often express themes in their struggles that can then be explored with parents . Play also fosters relationship and builds a more secure base for children to grow and flourish.
