If you answered "Yes" to any of these, then you are looking for the specialized attention which Step Together Family Therapy offers.
Sometimes families feel like there is no hope. Especially during those most challenging times which families may confront at some point:
However, moving forward from what seems impossible is possible. This is achieved by providing a neutral and safe therapeutic space, listening to your concerns, and setting goals to move families toward a happier and healthier life.
My personal goal is to help you overcome your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward within the life of your family and on your personal road to self-discovery. My focus is to help individuals and families heal and become aware of their inner strengths.

I hold a B.A. in Psychology from Holy Family University and an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from La Salle University. I am Clinical Fellow of AAMFT, member of PAMFT, and a member of the National Stepfamily Resource Center. My husband and I have successfully raised five children in our own stepfamily for the past 15 years. I tend to take a no-nonsense and realistic approach in offering families practical strategies which can help change negative patterns which currently keep them stuck.
Maybe you think you just don't have the time in your life for weekly therapy. But your family's busy schedule can be easily accommodated with convenient morning, afternoon, evening, and weekend appointments.
