“Family therapists view the therapeutic relationship as a means to an end rather than as an end in itself. Family therapists see beyond the problematic patterns in the family to the potential healing power of family relationships.”
― Joseph A. Micucci
My approach to family counseling is a mix of cognitive and familial theory. The way we handle our personal and intimate relationships reveal our inner struggles and conflicts. Through examining our relationships, we will find not only our strengths but also our weaknesses, which will help us add what is missing and work on changing the dysfunctional thoughts and actions that we have grown to posses. Our thoughts can comprise our belief system, which is the sum total of all our experiences, lessons learned, and beliefs that we have developed over our lifetime.
Every person has their own unique set of beliefs. There is no perfect belief system that is always correct and objective because we all at times have irrational or incorrect beliefs that can cause inappropriate or dysfunctional behavior. By unraveling this sequence in therapy, we can identify and change to improve the automatic thoughts that occur. Once this is achieved our feelings and thoughts can calm down and we can fix our behavior.
Why Family Success Counseling?
I have 8 years of mental health therapy experience in various environments and types of people. I began my career as a therapist working with children and teens at a nonprofit clinic alongside their parents individually and as a family unit.
During experience I found that helping moms who were struggling with depression, anxiety, and stress feel happier whic helped assist the entire family progress as a whole.
After the birth of my two children, I was inspired to open my practice and specialize in the treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. While my babies brought me joy, the postpartum period also awakened me to the various challenges, unmet expectations, and untold realities that this wonderful adjustment can bring to your life
