I help families through difficult transitions. Transitions can be any change, big or small, that puts stress on a family such as a job change, divorce or a teen wanting more independence. I focus on helping individuals, couples and families learn problem solving techniques, enhance communication and minimize stress. I also support and guide families through separation/divorce. I work with families to create a framework for structure, accountability and communication which provides teens with consistency and a sense of safety from which they can mature and navigate the challenges of adolescence.
I have over 10 years of experience working with teens and families. I have worked in Marin County high schools and with teens transitioning home from treatment programs. I love working with teens. These years can be challenging for teens and parents but they don't have to be.
Individual therapy can be very different from couples therapy. Although they both may focus on relationship issues, couples therapy is highly interactive and can be very helpful in improving communication and intimacy.
It can be very challenging parenting through divorce; dealing with your own emotional, financial and legal issues while at the same time trying to maintain a sense of consistency and support for your children. You are not alone.
