My passion for working with parents, with an emphasis on the transition to parenthood, grew from my own personal experiences as a mother and my professional experiences working with parents in this raw stage. Parenthood can fill us with joy and hope, and it can bring us to our knees in ways we never imagined. It’s my belief that we can lean into the hard parts of parenting , that having a safe place to share our story is essential to growth, and that we can truly thrive in this time in our lives. I provide support for parents at all stages in their journey from preparing to build a family to adjusting to new parenthood and beyond.

My expertise derives from my specialized training as a Parent Child Interaction Therapy therapist, the "Triple P" Parenting System, and my many years of experience helping parents discover the joys of positive parenting .
Parenting is hard work and I can help! Do you feel overwhelmed or frustrated by your child's behavior? Are you and your partner arguing about how to discipline? As a parent myself, I really know and understand about this. I work with couples and single parents who are facing the normal challenges of becoming and being parents. I can offer concrete tools and techniques to manage difficult behavior and improve and strengthen the relationship with your child.

See if you recognize any of these painful couples issues: anger management, sexual problems, money issues, parenting disagreements, past hurts that never got resolved, affairs, anxiety and depression issues, communication skills, avoiding talking about the issues, too much bickering, alcohol and substance issues, and relationship with family and in-laws.
Does your partner ignore what you say, just not hearing your needs? Do you suffer in your relationship, longing for a more loving connection? Find out how to stop bickering and make the changes it takes, to have a happier relationship. Are you feeling unloved, distant, and lonely in your marriage? Do you feel tension when he/she enters the room? If you answered "yes" to either of these questions, it may mean you've missed earlier warning signs that something is off track in your marriage. There is help for marriages that are losing passion, connection and love. Contact me if you want to talk about your marriage.

Personal experience has prepared me to work with couples (including separation and divorce); parenting and special needs parenting ; LGBT issues and teens.
Humans are social animals - by nature we need to feel connected ("in relationship"). Life today is SO stressful! If we feel connected we can manage our stressful lives. If we don't feel connected then it doesn't matter what else is happening - life won't feel very satisfying. Through the therapeutic process you and I will work on improving your relationships with yourself and others, which can help you feel more safe and secure, and that your life is more meaningful and satisfying. When your relationships are better, you have more focus and energy for life!

In addition to working with individuals I am also certified in Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
I believe you are the expert in your own experiences and the therapist's role is to guide you towards accessing the part of yourself that already knows the answer. Therapy is an opportunity to sit in a nurturing environment where anything can be said with acceptance. The gift of therapy provides a chance to hone your coping skills and bolster your resilience in your own time and at your own pace. In our work together I will meet you where you're at in your healing journey. You will have the opportunity to learn to activate your natural resiliency and self-acceptance to let go of shame, anger, or guilt that may be holding you back.

Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace.

Parent education has always been an important focus.
If you have concerns for yourself or someone close to you, seeking my help may be just what you need. Sadness, worry, anger, confusion and self-doubt can spring from many sources. If these feelings continue long-term they rob you of energy and vitality and can impair your health. You do not need to struggle alone. Having a trusted professional with whom to collaborate can make all the difference. Working with a seasoned therapist can bring about improved clarity, peace of mind and greater happiness.

I work with people challenged by loving someone who is addicted to alcohol, sex or drugs, or challenged by the life transitions of marriage, pregnancy, new parenthood, parenting adolescents, divorce and death of a loved one.
Marriage can be extremely challenging, especially if your childhood was less than ideal. I help couples learn to listen to each other and talk about difficult issues without being triggered by past events or experiences. These reactions can cause defensiveness, or result in attacks on, or withdrawal from, the other. I help change these patterns, facilitate productive discussions and help you get the love and closeness back in your marriage. Couples can heal, become stronger in their bond and rejoin in love even after an affair or infatuation. I have 29 years of experience as an insight-oriented psychotherapist working with individuals and couples.
