Relationships can be hard. Partners struggle with communication, conflicting parenting styles, sexual expressions... Life's challenges, hurtful fights, history of trauma or infidelity make it difficult to sustain trust and closeness. How can you create desired connections, and not lose yourself in the process? How can you be true both to self and to your partnership? I invite you to explore these questions together with empathy and curiosity, letting go of habitual judgments, self-deprecation, and shame. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Both traditional and alternative lifestyles are welcome, and no issue is a taboo.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Accredited Parenting Coach, and Founder of The Modern Parent. Through my deep healing work with families, I have learned how vital it is to fully understand yourself in order to show up in alignment with whom you want to be. The clients I work with are ready to better understand how their current and past stressors, relationships, and concerns are getting in the way of living life fully and enjoying it. We peel back the layers and story that we have been told about the "problem" or how we view the "problem" and shift this narrative to one that allows us to function in a way we deserve.

In parenting and family therapy sessions, we focus on learning and utilizing strategies in positive communication through positive parenting and Structural Family Therapy techniques.
Growing up is hard and sometimes tough to navigate, for kids and parents! Between early childhood and young adulthood, there are many challenges that children face on a daily basis. Often times, daily tasks and transitions bring on stress and sometimes depression and anxiety. Events ranging from separation to assault can provoke traumatic stress in the youngest child. This stress may lead to behaviors like isolating, self harm, crying, bed wetting, refusing to participate in activities or acting out. Your child has their own way of coping with change, which may negatively affect their relationships with teachers, friends or parents.
