Hello! Periods of change and growth occur throughout life and often arrive with unexpected challenges. During these periods of uncertainty, having support from a counselor can help you gain clarity and confidence to take steps toward a greater sense of well-being. Whether you are feeling stuck in your relationships, overwhelmed by life, or seeking a deeper sense of meaning, I will work with you collaboratively to increase your capacity for resilience and connection. I enjoy working with adults, teens, children, and couples. I also have experience supporting the parent/child dynamic and sometimes work with parent and child together.

Your family does not come with an instruction manual. Despite the abundance of parenting resources available, none of them are tailored to your exact family, your dynamics, your environment. What do you do when you feel stuck repeating frustrating behavioral cycles, worrying about potentially toxic parenting habits, and feeling overwhelmed at everything that doesn’t seem to be working? This is when you seek the help of a professional. You and your family deserve peace and harmony; you deserve the transformation that results from shifting from reactive to proactive parenting; and you deserve to become a connected family.

I help parents create the right environment for their youth through parent coaching designed to explore ways to reduce any possible stressors to improve their behavioral challenges through the use of relational parenting techniques.
I work with youth that have big personalities! They are complex, intense, passionate, independent, curious and very loving. They are also very smart, charismatic, and creative. They are all or nothing! One minute they are laughing, the next they are screaming. These children experience reduced filtering and advanced processing of information which causes them to have a hypervigilant stress response system. This affects learning, motivation, memory, the pursuit of pleasure, and self-regulation. This neurobiological quality is behind their intensity and originality. However, the right environment is key for their healthy functioning!

In our work together we would examine what emotions are arising for you as a parent, learn how to improve the connection with your child, and encourage your child to cooperate by setting limits with empathy and respect.
Finding the right therapist to work with is an important decision. The therapist's credentials and specialties are factors to consider, but perhaps the most important factor is "do I feel a connection with this person and can I talk openly with her about the challenges I'm facing?" It is an honor and a privilege to support you in your journey. I love helping people examine their lives, understand themselves better, and navigate their relationships more skillfully. My style as a therapist is pragmatic and I apply various approaches based on your individual needs.

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.
