I specialize in working with individuals and couples struggling with anxiety, depression or trauma that often accompanies major life transitions (launching to adulthood, birth of a baby, career shifts, loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship/divorce, health crisis). Life transitions impact our identity, our relationships and our sense of Self, often in ways we don’t expect. If a life event feels overwhelming or is keeping you stuck in patterns of thinking/behaving that no longer serve you, let's talk. EMAIL inquiries are the most efficient way to reach me.

After diverse experiences in healthcare, my passion is supporting individuals and couples in addressing challenges such as; relationship issues, codependency, recovery, symptom management, navigating co-occurring mental health / medical challenges, interpersonal effectiveness, self-care, career issues, grief / loss, parenting and women's issues.
I look forward to assisting you through the challenges of life and creating a happier and more empowered tomorrow. I often tell clients we all have 'junk in the trunk', it's often the junk we have not dealt with or avoid that sneaks up on us when we least expect it. It complicates this already complicated thing call 'life'. Let me help you unpack the junk, explore its impact on you and how its impact continues to effect you. Through supportive counseling you can take back the reigns and create positive change.

During difficult times, we can feel overwhelmed and stuck, unable to break ineffective or even destructive cycles. Getting “unstuck” involves incorporating new skills and concepts, such as psychological flexibility, self-awareness, assertive communication skills, mindfulness, effective coping strategies, insight, decision making skills, and values clarity.

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.
