I have experience and enjoy working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, life transitions, and trauma. I have also helped parents whose children are at risk of entering a higher level of care, parents who have recently reunited with their children after foster care, parents who have adopted, or parents who are struggling due to their own experience of trauma in their childhood. Everyone needs something different out of therapy but at the very least, it is my job to provide a therapeutic relationship focused on listening and connection.

I know you want your child to be happy and successful and are doing your best to help him. You'd like to have less arguing and enjoy your family more. Parenting is such a hard job. It can really help to have someone with experience to look at your situation from the outside. I believe you have what it takes to improve your family relationships, but you could use a guide. Your child may need to learn how to cope with new situations. I would like to help you to bring out the strengths in yourself and your family.

I work with people to improve communication, develop cohesive parenting approaches, and prepare for and manage change.
Our lives can often become overwhelming, leaving us feeling anxious, depressed or lost, without a clear direction to go. Often we know we don't want to feel like this but we're unsure how to change it. This is where therapy can help! Therapy provides a safe, honest place for people to explore their problems, collaborate to create solutions, and ultimately feel better. Life is meant to be enjoyed, full of happiness, and fulfillment. Topped with a good amount of humor! I want to help you have the life you want.

It is important that my patients feel respected and encouraged. My job is to really listen and help you feel understood. I also think my role is to give you lots of feedback and not just be a passive listener saying, "uh, uh, hmm, I see, hmm". I am a coach, cheerleader, teacher, confidante, and accountability partner. The biggest complaint I have heard over the years about any past therapists whom patients felt were not helpful was the complaint that the past therapist was way too passive. I work best with those that want a therapist high in empathy but is not passive.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
