Individual Therapy

Individual therapy has many benefits and areas of focus, and is tailored to meet your needs. We often find ourselves stuck in old familiar patterns that are challenging to change. Individual work can help you gain insight into ineffective patterns, reframe unhelpful thinking that leads to unhealthy choices and low self-worth, and develop new patterns to meet your needs and achieve your goals.  We will explore what experiences have shaped you to become the person you are today, what barriers get in the way of growth, and discover new tools to help you overcome these obstacles.  Individual work will help you gain a deeper understanding of the relationship you have with yourself and others, and give you the skills necessary to foster meaningful  relationships. Through self-exploration, acceptance, and change, self-transformation is possible.

Couples Therapy 

The goal of couples therapy is to help you and your partner navigate life‘s issues and challenges together. Whether facing a loss or transition, parenting struggles, issues with in-laws, financial disagreements, or problems around intimacy and trust, it can be extremely beneficial to address these issues in a safe, neutral environment. Couples therapy provides an unbiased third-party perspective to help you and your partner explore what is contributing to the conflict, as well as pointing out problematic patterns in the relationship. My job is to create a safe space which allows each person the opportunity to express themselves and feel understood. While there may be situations where all we need is to feel heard and validated by our partner, often that is not enough.Couples work can help you identify the strengths in each other in order to help you problem-solve, assertively communicate, and explore solutions in a healthy manner. Additionally, you may find it helpful to learn tools to handle thoughts and emotions that arise during conversations and disagreements. It's important to be mindful that you and your partner are a team that have the ability to evolve and grow together.

Family Therapy

Family therapy can be extremely beneficial to help the family unit cope with grief, loss, trauma, or a major life adjustment such a change in family composition. Family therapy may also benefit a family coping with one member’s physical or mental health struggles (one person’s cancer diagnosis, depression, substance use, etc.), as well as issues that arise in day-to-day life such as personality conflict. Working together, family therapy can help you create a more harmonious dynamic by processing feelings honestly, increasing empathy and understanding for each other's experience/perspective, and setting goals for individuals and the family unit that will intentionally align your loved ones. Additionally, family therapy can teach and empower parents to model more effectively how to communicate emotions, peacefully problem solve, celebrate each other’s successes, and support one another through difficulties. By challenging the roles we play in our family, changing ineffective patterns, and validating each persons' experience,  your family will have an increased sense of love, support, respect, and connection.
