My Approach to Helping

I am a family therapist which means I help clients gain awareness around patterns of behavior that have been passed down from generation to generation. We explore some of the following: the family you grew up in, role modeling from your parents, communication styles, and unspoken rules. All of our uncomfortable stuff gets stirred up when raising children. I assist you in stopping the cycle of unhealthy behaviors from being passed down to your own children.

My practice is entirely virtual which provides convenience, comfort, and privacy. My clients enjoy doing therapy from their couches rather than mine. Virtual therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy. It is a necessity during the COVID 19 global health crisis in order to keep everyone safe.

Groups I Work With

    I work with folks who are on the anxious side, value family, are curious about how their past affects them now, and they're raising a family. My clients may not be from America or have a spouse from another country. They're sick of family drama and need someone to jump in and help problem solve. They appreciate humor and respond well to a direct approach. They may have been in therapy before but didn't find it that useful in the long run. They're ready to get to work.
