My Approach to Helping

Growing up can be a difficult process. Parenting can be a surprisingly challenging journey. When I meet a few family seeking help, I start from a strengths-based perspective and work together individually and with the family system to move forward. We build on those strengths, minimizing the difficulties and find an authentic place to move forward through life in.

I would love to meet with you to join your process of mental wellness and building positive family relationships.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

I take time in the beginning of our work together to get to know you, your child, and your family dynamics. This provides me with an understanding of what you value and where you want to grow. I need to know about your child's early development, as far back as pregnancy! I need to learn about any adverse childhood events for each member of the family, and any support you have received during or after those possible times. I also look at your current support system to see if it providing you the resources and help you need. Then, together we build a solid foundation for your family to continue to launch off of.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

When you have a cold, strep throat, a broken arm, or any type of physical illness or injury, you take your child or yourself to your physician. You get the treatment and help you need to continue on with living a full life. We often forget to seek treatment for our emotional injuries, which are often more frequent than the physical ones. When you notice a need for mental health treatment, the best thing you can do is seek treatment, help, and healing from a professional to help you move through to living a full life.

I think going to therapy as important (if not more important) as going to wellness exams at your physician.
