For those clients seeking services for their children, additional support is offered for the parenting process, family dynamics, and school functioning.
Searching for the right therapist is an important step in an individual's growth and transformation process. Often, my clients initially arrive in my office exhausted from "doing it alone" or "toughing it out". From our very first session, I support my clients and commit to traveling with them on their Life's journey. Together we will gently peel back the layers of anxious struggle, dysfunctional behaviors, and pain. We seek the roots of these problems and focus our treatment on healing what lies beneath them. As healing happens, I mentor my clients to reclaim areas of their life that have been lost.

Are you looking for a way to release from your past and ground into the present moment? Have you tried therapy before and it hasn't helped, but something is drawing you back? Or maybe you have benefited from therapy in the past and you are ready for your next layer of healing. As a trauma focused therapist, we will assess and treat trauma first and then see if anything is left to do after that. Often, when we address the roots of trauma at the level of your physiology/body, symptoms resolve completely or if still present, stop interfering with your life and ability to experience joy and pursue purpose and passion.

As a psychologist, my job is to help my patients (adults, children, couples, and families) identify problematic patterns, understand formative relationships, and develop self understanding. Therapy can help children/teens learn how to express themselves and develop positive coping skills. The greatest predictor of success in therapy is the therapist-patient relationship and finding a therapist with whom you feel understood and can explore painful issues is crucial. My goal is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space where we can explore the past and create a new future. I am bilingual-bicultural in Spanish and English.

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.
