If you are a parent wondering if therapy could be helpful to your child, the answer is yes.
If you are considering therapy, there is a reason for it, one that you have to trust. Like all relationships, each therapeutic one is different and can help you reach your specific goal, whether that is an improved relationship, working through a difficult past, a recent life transition such as getting married, getting divorced, having a baby, moving, starting a new career, or adjusting to life as a parent of three! Whatever your experience, it is unique and therefore, it is reasonable to assume there may be both barriers as well as exciting, but anxiety provoking situations you come across.

We all struggle in some way as a parent , spouse, friend, and individual.
“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” – Thich Nhat Hahn. Therapy is a journey we are often reluctant to take. Once we begin that journey, our mind & body become exposed to new thoughts, emotions, and experiences. My goal as a therapist is to assist the client to focus on developing achievable goals, coping strategies, problem solving skills, and alleviating symptoms related to life’s social & emotional challenges. Together we will create a treatment plan which will meet your social & emotional needs.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative approach and the client’s input is necessary for the therapeutic relationship. I believe and will encourage to hear the client’s story (if able to verbalize) no matter what paperwork is read and or received prior to the first session. My clinical niche is working with children ages 3-17 years of age utilizing client-centered play therapy, however I also see adults. When seeing adults, I may use client-centered therapy, solutions focused therapy, family therapy, and/or brief therapy.

Asking for help can take much energy and courage. I approach each client with this in mind knowing what it takes to open up to another person.Each individual/couple comes to therapy with unique concerns/issues so I work with this in ensuring the treatment is geared specifically to the individual/couple. I view the therapeutic relationship as a collaboration between the therapist and the client. As such, we work together to integrate your ideals and values into the treatment so that changes are easier to implement and maintain.

You may be exhausted, disconnected, or feeling empty and looking for some hope. You may feel alone on this journey and believe something needs to change. Seeking therapy takes bravery, and I’m glad you’re here. Perhaps you are in a relationship that just doesn’t feel right or you have experienced something that has left you feeling afraid, out of control, or numb. Maybe you are navigating a difficult journey toward motherhood, grieving the loss of one or more pregnancies, or have arrived at motherhood to realize that this is not what you had expected.

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.
