Family Life Counseling

The tension experienced in family life (with spouses and/or kids) can become overwhelming at times.  Maybe family life started out ideal but you started to drift apart or collide when differences emerged in your decision making or parenting.  If you’re feeling stuck and things aren’t improving, there’s another solution to trying harder or giving up.

Perhaps you’ve vented to  friends, listened to podcasts or read books on the topic.   For most of us, we need much more targeted support to get unstuck and moving forward.    Maybe you’ve done none of these things opting for the “it’s a phase” and looked the other way or walled off from it.  But this phase is not improving and you’re getting tired and passively or aggressively wishing things would change.  The work of counseling offers new options often with greater relational satisfaction and results.   Even if your family member won’t attend, sometimes the power of one can make a huge difference and set the stage for success.

Perhaps today is a good day to take a risk and reach out to see if the change you seek is more attainable than you think. I specialize in working with individuals, couples and families of all ages.   If there’s not a good fit between us, I’ll do my best to lead you in the right direction.

During these trying times, we are all under additional stress.   However, for many this time has provided an opportunity to grow and change for the better.   I bring a playful and honest style that values action not just insight.  Skills are practiced in and between sessions to get things unstuck and moving forward helpfully.

If you’re ready to try something new and would like support please reach out for help.   While I don’t accept insurance, I do have current openings.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

The Benefits of Therapy


Therapy can be an effective tool in providing you with support, new perspectives and skills to overcome the challenges you face.  By seeking therapy, you are taking responsibility and action to change what no longer works in your life, even if the change becomes more internal than external.

With respect and compassion, I will work with you to create an open channel of communication. The goal of our therapy sessions together, will be to help you achieve greater life satisfaction.  Additionally, we will work on relapse prevention, which will allow you to maintain progress and move more easily through difficult times going forward.
