A mindful approach to parenting , marriage, school, aging or work will change these endeavors from drudgery to joyous! After many years focusing on children, as I approach retirement I am adding aging concerns to my practice.
I am interested in patients who want to be joyful and content, to cherish their relationships and appreciate the present. Many of us feel pressured, juggling many obligations, believing we need more, more achievements, more things. This "unsatisfactoriness" leads to depression and anxiety. We will suffer less if we appreciate the present more, whether we are caring for children or an aging parent or facing aging ourselves. I am interested in helping people who want to become happier by living in the present and letting go of beliefs that create suffering.

A woman's mental health is as important as her physical health. Have you recently given birth and cannot shake feelings of despair or fear? Are you struggling with a health diagnosis or grieving over a failed relationship? Maybe you are a parent who believes your teen could benefit from speaking with a therapist. You are not alone. As a working mother I understand the daily demands in a woman's life, and as a professional who has worked with children, adolescents, and adults in acute and outpatient settings I have experience assisting individuals in identifying and communicating their needs.

I work with those coping with grief/loss, sexual trauma, anxiety, parenting challenges, blended families, and divorce adjustment.
Sometimes making the first phone call can be intimidating, but I listen without judgment or criticism and ensure a welcoming relaxed style that helps to minimize fear and support your goals. In therapy, I help individuals explore the specific actions, thoughts, and feelings that may contribute to repeating patterns that hinder personal growth, and emphasize existing strengths to develop specific workable goals. When appropriate, I believe in including the family system in therapy to improve relationships. I am also willing to consult with school professionals, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and guardians ad litem to improve care.

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.
