Family Therapy May Provide the Solutions You Seek

Child and Family Therapy may be the very solution to solving some of the issues you may be concerned about within your family’s relationships. Life is full of ups and downs, and so are relationships. Add parenting in the mix and things can really get messy. How do you clean up your messes? Do you just sweep it under the rug or shove as much as you can in the closets and hope no one opens them? Maybe you scrub with bleach from top to bottom leaving no evidence. Mess? What mess? Or are you like many and are just doing the best you can to manage the struggles that life seems to be throwing you at rapid speed? Whatever it is that you may be struggling with (parenting, marriage, family relationships, substance abuse, or your own mental health) you do not have to do it alone.

My therapeutic approach is founded on Family Systems Therapy providing family counseling services in Bellevue, WA. I believe that in order to really create change, the entire system needs to change. I do not believe in a single identified patient in the family. Even if I am only working with you individually in family therapy, I will encourage you to analyze your own family system in order to gain deeper insight into your experiences.

Finding Answers Through Family Therapy

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, offering couples counseling in Bellevue, WA, I am passionate about helping couples find their spark again and reconnect in a deeper way than they even knew possible. Trauma to an intimate relationship can come in many forms; infidelity, substance abuse, financial distress, difficulty with child rearing, or maybe you have just grown distant. Increasing healthy communication, learning to meet your partner’s needs, and re-establishing a deep, intimate bond can breathe fresh air back into your marriage through family therapy and marriage counseling services in Bellevue, Washington. Give me a call and let’s reignite the flame that brought you together!

Young children often do not have the necessary vocabulary to express their emotions or their emotional needs. Often we see issues concerning behaviors such as, disruptive behavior, isolation, excessive worry or anxiety. We don’t know why and they don’t know how to tell us. It can be a helpless feeling seeing your child suffer and not being able to help them. As a child therapist, through play child therapy, I provide a safe space for children to express and explore their emotions. They will learn a new language. They will not only be able to tell you how they are feeling, they will be able to express their needs and will learn coping skills to manage those feelings. Also, as a child behavioral therapist, I provide teen therapy counseling services as one of the types of family therapy counseling.
