About

My passion is helping families adjust to significant life changes. Whether you are entering into marriage, welcoming a child into your family or realizing that it is time to refocus on your marriage, my goal is to help you strengthen and grow your family bond. Services include: PreMarital counseling, Marital Enrichment coaching, Perinatal Mental Health Support for moms AND dads (aiming to prevent or combat Postpartum Depression & Anxiety), hands-on parenting support including my direct observation & modeling.
Building self-awareness is key to any relationship, whether between two adults or parent and child. Creating your own family dynamic and parenting perspective is a unique process for each family. It is healthy to seek support. I am a married mother with two children & I bring lessons learned from my own marriage and parenting journey into the work I do.
I understand that even in the midst of exciting times, like getting married or having a baby, anxiety, stress and fear can creep in. Call for a free consultation to determine if working with me could be a good fit for your family. I work with each family uniquely to fit their situation, needs, & desired outcomes, while using evidence-based practices.
