Marriage and Family Therapy


Child and Adolescent Issues

Whether you have a young child and are dealing with developmental or behavioral issues or an adolescent having difficulty with anger, depression, peer relationships or school related problems, we will work together to come up with a plan that will help your child through this difficult period.

Anxiety and Depression

These are difficult times. It is easy to feel hopeless and anxious as we find our coping mechanisms have failed. Through genuine understanding and compassion, I can help you find your way back to your stronger self, and take the steps necessary for you to embrace life again.

Relationship Issues

With all of life's challenges including raising children, facing economic difficulties, and dealing with major life changes, marriages are placed on the back burner. I will help you find a way to get back on track and cope with the strains of life, so that your relationship can be strong again.

Teen Individual and Group Therapy

Individual Therapy

Being a part of a teen group can help adolescents:

1. Rediscover the talented, capable, and worthwhile individuals they are

2. Reestablishheallthy, positive relationships with their families

3. Grow by providing a safe 
and supportive environment that encourages them to identify the underlying issues driving their negative and self-destructive behaviors

4. Gain the courage to change and
develop positive coping skills

5. Gain insight and understanding during the unknown and sometimes frightening process of change

6. Learn how to support each other and learn the value of true, healthy friendships

Individual therapy for young children and teens will help to discover issues which are creating negative behaviors. In addition, the process of growing and coping with the stress of school, and peer related issues, can create anxiety and depression. These problems can make it difficult for your child to function well academically. Having a trained professional to determine the cause of such behaviors, and provide your child a forum of understanding and empathetic listenting which is essential in the healing process.
