What happens in a therapy session?
A therapy session is comfortable enough that you can talk about whatever you'd like, but structured enough that you are working towards your goals and feel you are making progress. We will take time to get to know you and really understand what you are looking for in therapy, then together we will create a plan to get there.

How do I know if I need to see a therapist?
If you’re asking this question, it's probably a good idea to make an appointment. It means that you are worried enough about something that you have thought about seeking help. In the past therapists only helped with more severe mental illness. With our better understanding of emotional health, therapists now help with everything from worry and indecision to major depression to conflict in relationships.
What is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist?
Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems, and licensed to diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders within the context of marriage, couples and family systems.
"Marriage and Family Therapists broaden the traditional emphasis on the individual to attend to the nature and role of individuals in primary relationship networks such as marriage and the family. MFTs take a holistic perspective to health care; they are concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families". --AAMFT Website.
