B.S., Practicum Student
In everyone's life there are good times and bad times. It is how each person reacts to those times that can determine the outcome. In a high-paced world, we are still codependent on the relations we have with each other. We are social by nature, and our family can often play a large role in the way we feel.
I am a Master’s student finishing my degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT). MFT works with a wide range of clients. The range of psychological problems treated by MFTs include marital and couple conflict, parent and child conflict, alcohol and drug abuse, sexual dysfunction, grief, distress, eating disorders and the self-image concerns that go along with this. I also work with children’s behavior problems, such as ADD/ADHD, as well as issues with eldercare. As our parents get older, coping with a parent’s or grandparent’s dementia, can be a difficult part of our lives. I have worked with the elderly for ten plus years and have seen firsthand the affects this care has on the children that are now the caregivers.
In addition to my Bachelor’s in Psychology, I have worked in the medical field as a Medical Assistant and a Nursing Assistant. Through this time, I developed my understanding of caregiver and patient relationships. As I finish my degree in Marriage and Family therapy, I can pull the same knowledge base and incorporate this in to what MFT is all about. Working with individuals and families to find the solution they are looking for. Marriage and Family Therapy is a sort-term and solution-based form of therapy. The length of therapy will be determined by the severity of each unique client’s situation.
