Sometimes life can become overwhelming--whether dealing with parenting concerns or the difficulties of navigating our current relationships.
I am an LPC and obtained my MA from Liberty University. As a former educator and children's minister, I gained extensive experience counseling children, adolescents, individuals and families. I have found Play Therapy techniques, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR to be especially helpful to my clients. Besides my calling to help others and spending time with my family, it is my relationship with God that gives me the greatest joy. I feel blessed and privileged to assist others on their journey to mental and emotional healing.

"Enter into children's play and you will find the place where their mind, hearts and souls meet." -Virginia Axline. A child-like wonder and desire for connection are the inspiration for my therapy approach with clients of all ages. I believe that humans, regardless of age, are playful by nature. For this reason I incorporate elements of play, music, expressive arts and movement into the therapy process. I engage families as a unit, using playfulness and artistic expression to enhance family bonds and attachments. Rarely do I work with a child entirely alone as I see the bond between parent and child as key to the healing process.

Over the past 25 years, I have specialized in parenting skills, anger management, women's issues, and anxiety disorders.
When individuals are struggling with decisions, or with difficult situations at home or work, therapy can help. You can learn new ways to deal with individuals and situations in your life. These skills will help decrease or eliminate the stress, depression, and anxiety that often accompany these issues. If you struggle with a deep personal concern, talking about it and examining your thought processes, can give you a new perspective to help resolve your conflict.

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.
