You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.
— Frederick Buechner

The word family is inevitably yoked with experience. Depending on your upbringing, this might fall anywhere on a spectrum ranging from laughter and tradition to loneliness and confusion. We all belong to families. At times, there will be seasons that feel impossible to navigate within them. As parents, caregivers, children, or loved ones, if you find yourself here know that you are not alone. I have experience working with families in high conflict, walking through the painful process of separation, processing the impacts of substance abuse as well as those experiencing loss. Every member of your family has a voice worth hearing. We can work together to find a way for you to understand and value each other.
