About Family Counseling

Family counseling brings family members – parents, siblings, and extended family members into the therapy room. Family therapy plays an important role in our emotional, physical, and spiritual development. The family system as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

The goal of family therapy is to help family members identify and understand how specific behaviors affect others, learn new ways of relating to each other, better resolve conflicts, and open lines of communication between all family members. 

Guidance With Strength, Compassion, and Commitment

I can teach families dealing with issues that affect their mental health and well-being. I work with families from a holistic perspective that highlights and encourages family member strengths. I can help with:

  • Child and adolescent behavioral problems
  • Co-parenting
  • Grieving
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Adoption
  • Infertility
  • Handling stressful family and life events
  • and many more!
