Family Counseling

Description: Programs that offer therapeutic sessions that focus on the system of relationships and communication patterns among family members and which attempt to modify those relationships and patterns to achieve greater harmony. The therapist focuses on the family as a unit rather than concentrating on one of the members who is singled out as the person in need of treatment. (AIRS RF-2000)

Provider Profiles: As your psychologist, I strive to provide you with the tools and support to improve your, your child's, or your family's life. Often this means linking early experiences and current functioning to deepen self-understanding, learn new skills, break out of hurtful patterns, and develop new modes of thinking, feeling, and relating to others.
My specialties include anxiety, depression, self harm behaviors, parenting issues- including co-parenting before, through, and after divorce- trauma, ADHD, and other mood disorders. I work with children, adolescents, individual adults, and families.
