I provide counseling services to children, couples, families, and individuals within a relational framework. I understand that people face problems in the context of relationships with others. As a result, I believe our lives can be affected by other people and outside influences. With that said, an individual may begin counseling to work on self-esteem and recognize the need to incorporate a family member into therapy.
I use play therapy techniques when working with children and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy to provide parents with the tools to build a strong relationship with their child. When your child’s tantrums feel overwhelming and frustrating, I help guide and direct you towards confidence in parenting and help your child build skills to express their emotions.
Since I apply Gottman Method Couples Therapy when working with couples, I support couples to build a deeper connection from arguments and anger in their relationship.
With the use of evidence supported therapy, I feel confident when working with children, couples, families, and individuals. When life seems chaotic and confusing, therapy with me can provide a happier and more fulfilling life.
At Relational Family Therapy, my main goal is to create confidence in individuals and positive engagement within families. Similarly, I aim to build communication and connection between couples and playful interactions with children.
Areas of Focus
Through the use of play therapy, I work with children on a variety of concerns. That is to say, children can work to increase expression of feelings and explore school challenges, sibling relationships, and grief.
I work with couples to build a strong and lasting relationship. Specifically, this includes dating, premarital, or married couples looking to strengthen their relationships and increase intimacy.
I focus on helping families understand family life-cycle transitions, such as bringing home a new baby. Additionally, I work to strengthen the parent-child relationship through Parent-Child Interaction Therapy.
With individuals, I focus on developing self-awareness and personal goals for overall well-being. For that reason, we look to balance challenging relationship dynamics and create work/life balance.
