Parenting is challenging, even more so after a separation or divorce.
Everyone can feel like the problems they face are overwhelming and difficult to solve.This can sometimes show itself as gambling too much, fighting with a spouse or feeling sad or angry. Therapy is a healthy way to explore new answers. I have a soft, gentle way of helping you find relief from the worry and concern.

As a parent it can be difficult to know how to respond to behaviors or how to handle tough parenting situations.
Children face so many struggles and challenges today. Some may be experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral issues, while some may be experiencing a stressful life transition such as a move, adoption, or a loss. And yet some may be distressed without a known stressor. I provide a safe space for children to explore their struggles and identify attainable solutions.

Perhaps you are feeling anxious, sad, or “stuck.” You may be struggling with a transition, such as becoming a new parent , starting a new job, coping with a loss, or adapting to life after a difficult medical diagnosis. Or, perhaps you find yourself overwhelmed by fear and negative feelings for no apparent reason at all. If any of this sounds familiar to you, residual, unprocessed feelings from the past may be holding you back from living the life you desire. At Onward Healing, we specialize in using EMDR therapy to help you heal the wounds of your past, to enrich your experience of the present, and to clear a path onward.

I have been married for 30 years, have one adult child and one teenager, so I can empathize with struggles in marriage and parenting teens.
NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS. Many people seek therapy when their coping skills no longer work or when relational issues cause continual heartache. Coming from past negative childhood experiences, I became a therapist to help individuals in their journey of discovering inner courage, strength and awareness of who they were created to be. My approach is Humanistic/Experiential while integrating Attachment Therapy, Internal Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral therapies. I offer a client centered, empathetic, safe, non-judgmental environment working towards a greater sense of wholeness and inner freedom, offering hope and coping skills.
