I'd like to support you going through the difficult moment you might be experiencing now. Life is no doubt challenging but a better and quality life should never be too much to ask. In my practice, I work with children, adolescents, adults, seniors, individuals, couples, and families. I have years of experience working with children and teens from ages 3 to 17 with different kinds/levels of issues and challenges. In the process, parent-child or family relational issues sometimes reveal and could be addressed through additional work or referrals. I also help couples to manage disagreements, de-escalate conflicts, and rebuild trust.

Hi, I'm Katelyn Carr Galvin, LMFT 111653, and I approach therapy as a place where you can be seen and heard in all phases of your life. I specialize in supporting women experiencing anxiety and stress often as a result of trauma, relational wounds, and overwhelming circumstances in life. I work with many women who have so much on their plates, from parenting to juggling work environments and life transitions. Wearing all these hats can feel burdensome and sometimes cause you to lose connection to yourself and others.

Contact me via Email for a free 15-min consultation if you are ready to work on family issues (traumas, adverse childhood experiences, parenting, bi-cultures, etc).
You don’t understand why your family causes you so many sleepless nights. You need someone to talk to but feel shame bringing up family issues or you don’t know where to start. You try to please everyone but you end up being the unhappy one. You cut off toxic family relationships but this leaves you feeling guilt, loneliness, and resentment. To prove yourself, you work hard and sometimes overcompensate. Past unresolved issues consume your energy, make you question yourself, and become hesitant to try a new relationship. You don’t want to be your parents but you don’t know how not to. You doubt if you can live a different life.

Harmony. When you think of harmony, one might picture different things coming together that work so well simultaneously and you feel a sense of peace. When things aren’t working well together, there is a clash or dissonance, causing more stress and more problems. I came across a video on Instagram from Nedra Glover Tawwab (nedratawwab) where she talked about the difference between balance and harmony. You see, my ultimate goal in life was to achieve balance when in fact what I was envisioning was harmony. “Harmony is getting things to flow in your life in a cohesive way. Balance is getting everything to be equal."

We all pick up unhelpful coping mechanisms and survival skills during those early foundational years, but we don't deserve to feel stuck with them forever. Everyone benefits from taking a moment to pause and reevaluate to identify beneficial changes and update your view of yourself in a way that is authentic to you-not your baggage. I find a strong therapeutic relationship is key to successful therapy, and that is my priority. Our initial session we'll review what is bringing you to counseling. From there, we will collaborate to create goals and use the safety of the therapeutic relationship to find your personal version of growth.

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.
