My Approach to Helping

Are you having a difficult time communicating with your loved one? Do you desperately want love, affection and support from your loved one? Do you feel like you\'re banging your head against a wall every time you interact with one another? I am here to help. At Kindred Therapy, PLLC I specialize in working with couples and families who are in distress.

We ALL hit road bumps in our relationships and we sometimes need a third non biased party to help everyone get back on track. I am a natural skeptic, so I only used evidence-based, brief psychotherapy practices that are designed for you to get relief as soon as possible. I love to read, specifically about the latest research on how to make your relationships work. I will use that knowledge to help you and your family. My goal is to get your relationship working again, reconnect and have joy with one another.

I have a specific niche in working with a couple or a family where at least one member has a diagnosed mental health condition. I help family members navigate that often stressful dynamic to regain hope and help their loved one towards recovery. I have worked extensively with families whose loved one has eating disorders, substance abuse disorders and personality disorders.

I look forward to hearing from you to see how I can help. with you and your family.
