As a native New Yorker, business owner, and busy parent, I understand the difficulty in saying "no", setting boundaries, and maintaining relationships outside of the family. You may feel guilt or shame for taking time for yourself. You may feel like you have no idea what you're doing at times, and perhaps burnout that makes you feel like you're hanging on by a thread. You may feel like you're always doing something but at the same time feel like you're not doing enough. That's because you're not prioritizing your own needs. I work with parents, particularly parents who have had pre-term babies and children who are differently abled.
I help parents to gain a sense of empowerment & control in their lives. We work on implementing boundaries and increase comfort in saying "no". We'll examine your parenting style and how this contributes to your stress level while making long-lasting life changes to improve your overall wellness. You gave someone life, now its time to give back to yourself.
My style is supportive, action-oriented, and honest- big sisterish with a dash of quirky humor. I've been in this field for about 15 years and have worked with many people just like yourself, in addition to knowing first-hand just what you are going through. You probably have plenty of questions, so please message me to set up your consultation.

One of the biggest benefits to therapy can be learning where your boundaries are and creating space for yourself. Being a parent is difficult and therapy can help to normalize some of what you are going through, reduce your stress, and learn to see things from your young child's point of view. Through therapy, you can become the parent you've always needed.

For those who are inclined to incorporate spirituality into their wellness plan, please know that all faiths are welcome. I am a pagan-affirming therapist. I do not view animist and indigenous practices as "alternative" or "new age". I see that spending time with nature increases healing and that is incredibly valuable.
