My Approach to Helping

I will always start with your strengths so you have a foundation to build from. I use a Narrative approach, then look at Family Dynamics and then Evidence Based Skills that we tailor to you. I am all about building your confidence and resiliency in coping with your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I was a business gal once, I worked in advertising & at Nike building Niketowns. After the birth of my first child I became more interested in the ever changing brain. So I went back to graduate school. My focus was Marriage and Family Therapy as well as Addictions. Over the years it has become relationship therapy with specialties in: Depression, Anxiety, Relationships, Self Confidence, Skills & Goals.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Narrative  External link

    I am a believer in hearing yourself tell your story. Many times it has been in our mind for so long, that hearing it out loud it pretty powerful. Sometimes even funny to realize what you've been telling yourself. I am curious about your internal dialog. Is it happy & healthy? What we think becomes how we act & resond.

  • Mindfulness-based External link

    I offer a non-judgemental approach with a safe place to explore what you need to. I practice mindfulness myself and believe it's within all of us.

  • Family Systems External link

    When we look into your family system we are given the information that created your world view. You learned to be you - from your family of origin. This helps us find where the glitches may have been & then we can work on healing.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I am a Marriage & Family Therapist by education which looks at Family dynamics within context. This helps look at patterns, themes and find solutions!

  • Codependency External link

    I think we all have a tinge of codependency. The reason I work with is so often is many clients come from a background where codependency helped them survive. My goal is to break that habit & learn to love you.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety is contagious - really. It's the emotion that we are most likely to absorb without realizing it. So most of us have some degree of anxiety. I can help develop skills that are scientific and relatable, so anxiety isn't prevelant in your world. I'm all about natural & skill based options to combat anxiety. I use my own skills and they work!

  • Depression External link

    It's a pervasive and silent thing- depression. I've lived with it myself and have researched it for years.
