Family Therapy

Just like individuals, families are often faced with daily pressures.  Transitions through different life stages can be challenging.  As a marriage and family therapist, I am trained to help families identify areas where they might be malfunctioning and help them to reorganize their family structure in a healthier way in order to best function as a whole.  

My first step in family therapy is ensuring that every member of the family feels heard.  I work with families to help them establish appropriate roles, boundaries and healthy communication patterns.  By learning effective communication and boundary-setting skills, families can create and maintain loving and respectful relationship--no matter the circumstances.  

When should a family seek family therapy?

  • Death of a loved one (sudden/traumatic)

  • Divorce/seperation/marital conflicts

  • Job loss/change

  • Adoption

  • Child behavior issues

  • Child/parent conflict

  • Blended family

  • In-law issues

Christian Marriage Counseling

As a Christian and a Therapist, I consider it a joy and an honor to provide counseling to the christian community.  My goal is to create a safe space for couples to learn how to align their relationship with God's plan for marriage.  

I strive to integrate sound biblical perspective in the therapeutic process while respecting each client's spiritual experience and journey as we explore faulty beliefs and unrealistic expectations that might be at the core of your marital distress. 

If you are struggling in your marriage or you are in crisis and are willing to put in the work, I am certain that your relationship can heal and thrive as you aim to keep Christ at the center of it all.  

 

" Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.  But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.  Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.  But how can one keep warm alone?  Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.  A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
