From the outside looking in, people see someone who “has it together.” Perhaps this is related to your family, job, marriage or community. From the inside looking out, you see a world full of pressures, expectations and a need to cultivate happiness for those in your life, sometimes at the expense of your own sanity. I often hear from clients that they feel “stuck” in the same cycle of life and can’t seem to find satisfaction, despite having many of life’s “checkboxes” marked off. Experiences of chronic anxiety and worry are common though they keep moving through the motions of life.

Becoming a mother is something we don't talk about often, but we should. Do you need a place to share about the experiences of pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum? Shame and guilt can be right below the surface of a mom smiling on the outside. It is ok to say it is hard, because sometimes it is. Don't be afraid to say you are struggling, that you need someone to share with, without fear of judgement. Often on the other side, is something peaceful, giving meaning and purpose to the role of mother.

Children and adolescents are often faced with a myriad of obstacles, adjustments and stressors throughout their growth cycles. Through an integrative approach, I work with children and their caregivers to find ways best suited to master these obstacles and surmount life's challenges. As stated by Erik Erikson, "Play is the most natural method of self-healing childhood affords" and I dedicate much of my work to empowering children to use their inner strengths and abilities in creative ways that meet their needs. Just as adults process with their words, children do so in their play.
