From my own experience as a mother and from special training in the area of family functioning, I guide my clients through struggles they face in their families.

Counseling Approach

Working from a background in Cognitive Behavioral therapy, she utilizes techniques that have been proven effective.

Before our first meeting, I will contact you by phone. This brief, free conversation is intended to help us decide whether we will work well together. If we feel we are on the same page, we will set up an appointment. My first goal is to understand what you want to change. Then together we can set goals that will guide the course of therapy. We will periodically look back on those goals and adjust what we are doing to make therapy effective for you.

Usually, we will meet weekly at first until you see a lot of progress. Then we will meet every other week or once a month to make sure your progress stays protected. Then we will have a final session to celebrate your progress and plan for future needs.
