Individual, Couples, & Family Therapy (adolescents & adults)
I'm mindful that a good fit is important in therapy, including a level of respect and
trust that supports self-expression, sharing deep personal experiences, feeling like an
equal part, and being able to provide feedback to one another. Therapy also has the
potential to challenge one another, while bringing about new ways of thinking,
different conversations, and enhancing a greater sense of growth in one's self and
Whether you’re contemplating marriage, or have a date set, having essential conversations
on the following topics can have a strong impact on the future of your relationship. Some
topics include: Commitment, Communication, Conflict resolution, Spirituality/Faith,
Culture, Intimacy, Health, Children, Family, Finances, & Career.
Consultation & Support for Parents, Friends, & Family -
Guidance for family & friends, who are helping someone through a difficult period
or extreme mental health experience. This is often an overwhelming experience for
all involved and an experienced outside perspective can be beneficial. Themes discussed
are: communication, managing expectations & uncertainty, self-care, setting limits,
finances, planning, treatment, continued care.
Students & Parents
School can be a major period of transition and adjustment, feelings of stress, discomfort, and
being overwhelmed are common – for students & parents – as the disruption of schedule,
environment, new classmates & teachers, finances, social & academic demands…all can be
difficult to manage. Our meetings can be a place to express oneself, defining needs,
developing skills & coping strategies, and planning next steps.
Clinical Consultation & Supervision -
I meet with individuals & groups. Some themes are: self-care, feeling stuck &
defining needs (in various psychosocial situations), family work, group dynamics &
team bldg, leadership development, guidance & feedback, resetting boundaries, transparency,
feeling the need to fix, defining one's role, self-disclosure, and uncertainty.
Outside supervision can bring about a fresh perspective from someone who is not part
of the day-to-day agency and can help develop new ideas, while supporting those who
continue to grow into their identity as therapists. It can also be helpful for agencies
that have limited time & resources for ongoing spvn to their staff.
Meeting & Communication options - my office, client or family's home, community,
agency/organization. Also, I use video/phone/text.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or possible next steps.
