a lifetime to grow
Family Therapy

I view my work with families from a systemic perspective. None of us stand alone -- we are formed and shaped by the interactions we have within our families. To understand the struggles of the individual, it is important to understand and often include important family relationships. My work with families honors all the different ways that people come together to care and nurture one another!

Young children have little power to impact change in their environments. If sustainable change is to occur, they need the active support of the adults in their lives. For this reason, my primary intervention with young children will be family therapy. As children get older and grow more independent, they are better prepared to work with a therapist one-on-one in addition to family therapy or consultations.
