Estrangement in families is more common than many people realize. Parents can feel fearful and powerless, hurt and confused. I can help you explore how your best intentions to reach out to your adult child could be backfiring, and why your selfless generosity may be met with rejection. With training and experience in individual therapy and a variety of family constellations, I'm ready to help you get beyond feeling stuck.

Even parents who are confident that their adult children have happy lives may worry. So it's not surprising that parents feel deeply concerned when grown children show problems with drugs, the law, and unhappy relationships. We'll work to reclaim your life while honoring love for your children.

I offer specialized group therapy for parents who are estranged from their adult children. If interested, start with contacting me for an informational interview We'll both ask questions to ensure members of the group are on the same page, and have the best chance of getting their needs met.

Through mutual support, self-empathy can point us in a new direction of growth. In this 8 week group we'll explore feelings, hopes, expectations, and beliefs about ourselves and our family members. Our orientation throughout is to find peace with what is or isn't possible, and to move forward from there. This will be an intimate group of four to six members.
