Family-Talking 1I offer family therapy for families desiring to address life transitions, roles, boundaries, other aspects of family structure, and positive communication.  I work with traditional as well as families of adoption, blended or step families, gay or lesbian families. I also work with young people in the launching stage and those families living with ADHD (parent or child or both).  I utilize somatic, family systems, mindfulness, collaborative problem solving, narrative and experiential therapies and coaching to insure that people are able to learn and practice new patterns in ways that work for them.

My goal is to assist you in improving your family function using genuineness, compassion, understanding, strengths, supportive structure, and celebration of the contributions of each person.
