Couples frequently experience communication issues, unresolved arguments, trust issues, and many other problems which are normal to surface in any relationship. In couples therapy, we will focus on strengthening the teamwork of the couple relationship and increase the capacity for the relationship to change to meet the needs of both partners. Couples therapy can be beneficial at any stage of a relationship or marriage, from doing premarital therapy to repairing the wounds from an affair in a longstanding marriage. Couples therapy is a great option for those have a strong motivation to have a happier relationship with lessened conflict and greater understanding amongst the relationship partners. I welcome LGBTQ+ and alternative relationships.
In individual therapy, we can work to improve a variety of problems including: self-esteem, anxiety, depression, cultural/race-related issues, and transitional life issues. I have a firm belief that everybody has the capacity to change with the right guidance and a good dose of personal effort. I provide a supportive space for you to make sense of what’s going on in your life and guide you to find insight for the next steps forward.
Family therapy can be helpful for families who wish to reduce arguments, improve communication, or are experiencing a family transition, such as having parents divorce or remarry. Family therapy can strengthen the relationships between parents and children to forge a deep bond for the rest of their lives. I share my knowledge of the family life cycle and developmental life stages to empower families with information to confidently rebuild their relationships.
I mainly use a blend of Humanistic, Narrative, and Collaborative approaches in therapy. I believe everyone has inherent good and can change for the better, that everyone has a unique story which will work to heal themselves, and that that story is the driving force to creating change. I have been trained to treat clients in a systemic manner, meaning that I consider all the relationships you have (ie: friends, family, culture) when I am working with you. I have worked extensively with clients of a wide range of racial backgrounds and have used my language skills of Spanish and Mandarin Chinese to meet client needs.
I offer 50 minute sessions at the rate of $135. Please get in contact with me if you would benefit from a shorter or longer session.
A sliding scale is available upon request based on financial need. Please give me a call to discuss.
I accept all major credit cards, as well as HSAs and FSAs.
I provide receipts for clients to seek out-of-network reimbursement from their insurance providers if that is an option for them. Clients can often get a portion of the therapy fee reimbursed to them by their insurance providers.
