My Approach to Helping
As a solution-focused therapist, I believe that a client walks in with the answers to their questions and we are a team walking on the path to discover those very answers and working together, we can get a better understanding to resolve challenges the client and their family is currently facing. My therapy is often client directed, allowing them time and space to move through their individual story, remember their strengths and pull on their inner and outer resources for support and comfort. I believe therapy is important in all stages of life as guidance through troubled times whether individually, as a couple, parent or family. Therapy helps build much needed skills in self reflection, personal responsibility, interpersonal communication, emotional regulation and expression, while assisting in creating realistic, attainable goals for a healthy lifestyle.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
I am a solution focused brief family therapist. After the initial meeting, a discussion of the issue at hand and needs of the client, I typically recommend a minimum of 6 sessions, no more than 2 weeks apart, for 55 minutes. This will get the client focused on the issue presented, set a clear goal, work on what develops in session and be able to form new patterns of behaviors to begin to see some change, even if very small. At the 6 session mark, as a collaborative team, progress is assessed and sessions scheduled as needed.
