WEEKLY FAMILY THERAPY

As a family therapist, I believe our families profoundly impact the way we think, feel and behave. The connectedness and reactivity we sometimes have in our family system can make the functioning of family members interdependent. This means that a change in one person’s functioning is predictably followed by reciprocal changes in the functioning of others. Looking at the family in family therapy as an emotional unit, helps us make dynamic and real time changes in individuals as well as the system as a whole.

LGBTQ FAMILY THERAPY​

I work frequently with LGBTQ Families and households with same-sex parents. As part of the LGBTQ Specialization at Antioch University, and Clinical Director of an adolescent treatment center, I have an abundance of experience and training in this area. LGBTQ families may benefit from working with a family therapist who is trained in affirmative therapy.

FAMILY THERAPY: COMMUNICATION AND CONNECTION 

At the foundation of all our relationships is the ability to communicate effectively. When we are able to express our thoughts, feelings and ideas about each other, to each other, in a way that is understood by the other, we start to feel closer and more connected. In families, this need to be understood and connected is becoming increasingly important in a world fragmented with social media and pressure to succeed

LGBTQ Family & Couples Therapy

LGBTQ couples therapy and LGBTQ family therapy requires a nuanced understanding of personal and relationship dynamics that impact the system. With an LGBTQ+ affirmative approach to treatment and extensive experience working with an array of different families, I believe I can help make the changes in your relationships you would like to see. 

During family therapy, we will create a comfortable place for difficult conversations to take place, and it’s often from these conversations among family that some of the most powerful transformations occur.

Family therapy is often a new experience for parents and teenagers and it's natural to feel anxious or nervous before your first session. 

Particularly in the first several sessions, we will try to understand the different dynamics within the family, the history of family members and any important traumas or illnesses. From there, we will work together to understand goals, problem areas and dynamics that need improving.

COMMUNICATION

Many of the families I work with, have trouble communicating effectively.  If one member of the family is struggling with a mental health issue or an addiction, it’s common for communication to be further stunted.

Learning how to communicate more clearly and more respectfully can help avoid the bad feelings that go along with fighting and arguing and helps the entire family start to feel better.
