About My Clients

Working with family members caught in the web of a toxic or narcissistic relationship is my specialty. Including the maladaptive coping skills associated with complex trauma: eating disorders, substance abuse and low self-esteem. I conduct an ongoing and affordable weekly group for Women with Unpredictable Partners. My skills include treating personality disorders, depression, anxiety and relationship or family distress (i.e. co-parenting and blended family issues).

My Background and Approach

Being a family therapist, I approach each member as part of the larger family system without blame or judgement. I promote inclusive language fostering useful communication skills. We explore rules, roles and patterns that are toxic to your wellbeing and learn strategies to faciliate your healing process. I utilize EMDR, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, CBT, Attachment and IFS plus Motivational Interviewing skills into my practice facilitating positive change. It is helpful and productive to attend family therapy as an individual even if your loved ones are not willing to participate. Together we can be curious and find solutions to help you live your best life!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Social justice inequities and safe communities require intentional action to care and support one another. I value connection and family values displayed by showing love, safety and concern to all. At times we need to ask for help. Finding yourself in a toxic or unbearable situation is not your fault. The accompanying guilt, shame and remorse fosters isolation, irritability and loneliness. In this past year, we have seen an increase in domestic violence, drug and alcohol use and suicide. Therapy can provide relief from paralyzing emotional pain and stress. I have experienced pain and suffering in toxic relationships in my own life and strive to use my personal experience and professional skills to best serve your needs.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
