Individuals & Families

I work with individuals and families on a variety of issues, and enjoy helping my clients address underlying issues that may be holding them back in their life, career, or relationship. My primary therapeutic modality centers on helping my clients identify and ultimately resolve issues from their family of origin — the stories, experiences, and values they grew up with — that may no longer be serving them as adults.

This is incredibly powerful work.  I have seen, both personally and professionally, how family of origin experiences can have a lasting and sometimes detrimental impact on our lives.  Everybody experiences and then acts on their family of origin issues in different ways, but some common examples of how they can manifest include:

  • Caretaking or having codependent tendencies — can be associated with children who felt responsible for their parents’ well-being, especially in cases of parental illness (physical or mental) or divorce
  • Lacking trust in relationships often evident in adults who were separated at an early age from their parents (i.e. if the mother had to return to work soon after the birth or the father was sporadically involved) and/or who did not have their needs met as infants
  • Struggling to parent your own children tends to correlate with a childhood that was lacking in parental modeling and/or if it occurs when your child is a specific age can correlate to a trauma or disconnect that you experienced at that same age

I offer individuals and families support with:

  • Exploring your own birth and early childhood experiences
  • Identifying and ultimately changing patterns from your family of origin that are no longer serving you
  • Resolving stuck or recurrent issues in your life, career, or relationship
  • Connecting with your partner on a deeper level
  • Working with teens who are having difficulties at home or in school

My rate for a one-hour psychotherapy session is $110.
