I established the Family Therapy Group of Weston on the belief that families are the most important factor in our beautiful community. All families are not created the same but all families have the same longing for connection, closeness and understanding.

In my 20-year career as a relationship and family therapist, I was given the opportunity to work with families from all over the world, what became clear to me was that if any of the members of a family unit was struggling then everyone else at home would struggle too. I realized that not only couples needed help to keep their relationships healthy but also if their teens or children were struggling that it would impact the whole family as a whole.

This is where the journey began to create a group practice that could help every member of a family. From the moment you walk into our office, you are assured that you are in good hands. In my role, as the Clinical Director, my main responsibility is to make sure that our team of therapists is providing you with the best care that fits your mental health needs.

Every single therapist in our team has been selected for their specific training and experience as well as for their non-judgmental and compassionate approach. This is an important key component to our practice. We believe that a therapist that is emotionally attuned to the needs of their clients is much more effective at helping create behavior changes that will help families heal and grow. We work together as a team to make sure that our families are treated with the most effective and successful approaches.
