Feeling stressed and burnt out carrying all the emotional burden for your family? Children and young people face a complex world in 2021. Families need support and connection. It’s too common to feel lonely and tired. It takes a village to raise a child, a solid support network is everything. As a mother and partner I know it can feel like we carry all the responsibility of the family. How can we help our loved ones when we are so burnt out? I love working with women, children, teenagers and partners, to re-connect and address serious issues in the family. Too often we let problems get worse and soon they become overwhelming.
I have 10 years of experience working with families that have experienced trauma and displacement. I believe that healing starts in a safe and trusting relationship therapeutic relationship. I work playfully and genuinely to foster positive family connections through upheaval and distress. As we get to know each other we set goals to help your family heal.
I aim to create a warm and welcoming vibe in my sessions, I am open and honest with a vibrant energy. I love to work with children and young people fostering their growth and relationships to caregivers and friends. Let me carry some of the emotional load with you, call me for a free 15min consultation to see if we can work together.
