Being a parent is a hard and rewarding job! Parents often feel they have to do it on their own, with meager training or support.
I believe living a successful life is a process. I have to laugh at the expression,"Expect the Unexpected," because it is so true! In order to navigate through a life of uncertainty, you may need support or guidance during the more difficult stages. I am here so you don't have to go it alone. My goal is to create a safe environment for you to explore your personal needs. I would be honored to assist you with navigating life transitions such as job relocations, marriage conflicts, parenting challenges, major life decisions or empty nest syndrome.

Being a parent can be really tough; so can being a kid.
Does your child seem unhappy or angry; maybe having problems at home or school? Are your kids fighting? Do you have a young child who doesn’t listen to you, refuses to sleep in their own bed, won’t eat anything but crackers, or throws a fit when they don’t get their way? Do you find yourself feeling frustrated or angry with your child? Are you tired of fighting with your spouse, or your kids? Maybe your kids are fine but find you, yourself, are feeling overwhelmed. I am here to help. I’m a teacher turned therapist who works with children (0-17) and families, both individually and as a whole.

I work with individuals, couples and families and can assist you with parenting issues.
Often a person will seek out counseling when personal attempts to solve a problem have not worked. Therapy is a safe and supportive environment in which to explore very personal concerns - concerns that may be difficult to share even with those closest to you. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I can provide a different kind of support than family and friends; I will listen objectively, not be judgmental, and help you to find your own solutions. My role is to help you feel better and to assist you to acheive your own personal goals.

Parenting Therapists
In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
