Is there a tug inside you, aching for your life to be different or better? Conflict between your inner voice, that whispers its wisdom, and influential norms that impress you with what you “should” do? You may be questioning your sense of belonging in this world. Worries of whether you’re good/smart/capable enough. Existential concerns of whether you are doing yourself, or your spirit, justice. You may wish to free yourself from patterns learned in childhood, or the professional culture you now find yourself a part of. At heart, you wish to experience a peaceful sense of self, joyful relationships, and meaningful work.

I support parents in various relationships who are struggling when it comes to shared parenting. Helping others to facilitate positive co-parenting is a skill that CAN be acquired. I believe in the power of therapy and in empowering people to be the best versions of themselves within a relationship. Parents look for creative ways to solve problems while at the same time supporting a safe place to have hard conversations. Using the conflict resolution approach helps to minimize conflict and achieve greater balance and functioning within the family. Parents need processes that are realistic, obtainable and can be maintained.
