Journey To Peace

I provide online counseling sessions. Telephone sessions also available.
Journey To Peace is here to help guide you and your family through life’s many anticipated and unexpected changes. While change is never easy, it’s the only constant in life, and those who can learn to traverse its many challenges are rewarded with resilience and a fresh start.
Change comes in many forms, from losing the promotion you worked so hard for to discovering your partner is leaving you… from saying hello to new relationships to saying goodbye to loved ones… No matter the circumstance, transitions always require an adjustment to a new reality which often incites mood swings, sadness, fear, or anger; and in these moments we all can benefit from a little emotional support to get through. Journey to Peace is here to help our clients let go of what’s no longer serving them and accept their new circumstance, allowing them to lean into relationships, habits, and skills that will foster growth and movement towards the life they want.
I have an integrative approach to therapy which means I use different therapeutic practice tools and methods to help my clients depending upon their unique challenges. I take into account the mediating role of cultural and systemic factors to help my clients address mental health problems or challenging life events, as well as their family, social, and work systems.
In individual therapy, we work on what you are most concerned about using brief interventions to develop a solution. In group therapy, we focus on a specific treatment goal on a short term basis. I also work with my clients to understand the difficulties they are experiencing from the unique perspective of their culture to reconcile, cope, and support post-traumatic stress, acculturation, marginalization, address discrimination, and assist clients to manage close cross-cultural relationships.
When working with families and individuals I may use a variety of therapeutic techniques:
Some forms of family therapy include:
Functional family therapy (FFT) assesses the family dynamics that have contributed to a child’s problematic behavior, improves family communication and parenting skills, and supports positive reinforcement.
Marriage counseling/couples therapy: This therapy involves you and your spouse or romantic partner. Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs) are specifically trained to help couples determine their problems and work on solutions. Issues may be related to communication, raising children, finances, understanding your or your partner’s mental health condition and more.
Strategic family therapy: This is a short-term family therapy that focuses on making positive structural and behavioral changes in the family environment. It’s based on the foundation that the family plays the most important role in the life and development of children. Therapists may use this therapy form for families with children who have behavioral issues.
Structural family therapy: This type of therapy looks at the inner relationships, boundaries and hierarchies within a family unit (its structure). It focuses on direct interactions among your family members as the primary way to bring about positive change. The main foundation of structural family therapy is that when guided by a therapist, families will discover their own alternatives to their problematic patterns of relating to one another.
Systemic family therapy: The foundation of systemic family therapy is considering the family’s issues in the different contexts in which they live. For example, the therapist will consider how one family member functions as a partner in a romantic relationship, as a parent and as a child to their parents. Context also includes cultural, religious and political views, and socio-economic status. This approach regards context as having the most significance for your psychological development and emotional well-being.
For families who are participating in therapy due to a mental health condition, psychoeducation is a crucial part of the therapy. Psychoeducation is the way that mental health professionals teach people and their families about mental health conditions. It involves basic information about the condition, causes, treatment and prognosis (outlook).
