Adolescence can be a trying time for teenagers as they mature emotionally and try to handle new responsibilities in school, at home, and in planning for the future. It becomes all the more difficult if a teen is going through another issue like their parents getting divorced, difficulty learning in school, or losing an old group of friends. Sometimes just being able to talk to an adult who isn't their parent can help them process everything going on in their world and make positive changes.

My office is a judgement free space where couples can work through anything from intimacy to parenting challenges to recovering from infidelity.
I am a holistic and somatic therapist. There are times in life where we get stuck; locked in traumas of the past, or fearful of things to come. Our body tells us we’re on the wrong path through anxiety, disordered eating, conflict in our relationships, GI problems, and other adverse symptoms. In therapy, I help you discover what your body is telling you. Through Somatic Experiencing, you’ll learn how to heal the intensity of your experience of past events that keeps you feeling overwhelmed and settle your nervous system in the here and now. For those seeking nutritional psychology this is used to improve anxiety & other symptoms.

All Daring Way facilitators have completed training certification process led by Brené Brown & TDW Faculty- focusing on developing shame resilience skills & daily practices to transform the way we love, parent and lead.
It’s okay to say, "I'm not okay." If trying to return to “normal life” post pandemic is harder than you thought & you’re sad or anxious and not sure why- you are not alone. Life is messy but good therapy ends. Maybe your life looks nothing like it did two years ago & you’re reeling and only now catching your breath and struggling to breathe. Maybe your life looks the same and you feel different but you’re stuck, overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next. What we allow will continue & lasting change requires work. Often starting the work & reaching out is a daunting task but when we avoid our stories, that's when they define us.

Parenting children with disabilities, Adults and children with ADHD- organization and training for structuring work, school, and home environments.
Change is an inevitable part of life. Transitions are as natural as night and day. In nature we observe times when things move slowly without visable change - and then suddenly acceleration occurs followed by a transformation. I am a therapist/professional counselor who works with individuals ranging from childhood through late adulthood, couples, and families to assist them in finding personal growth, and work confidently through the natural transitions life brings. I recognize each client as unique and direct my counseling to the whole person; which attends to the body, mind, and spirit of each.

I serve people in the areas of anxiety, depression, grief/loss, identity formation, parenting , couples and pre-marital/marital.
At the core of every person are innate needs to feel safe, secure, protection, love and connection. These innate needs follow us throughout life and have a significant impact on our ability to experience life to the fullest. When our innate needs are not being met we can experience significant negative emotion & stress. If we pay attention to our emotions, they help shed light on areas in our life where these needs are not being satisfied, which often results in stress. Our innate needs are satisfied physically, emotionally, psychologically, spiritually & behaviorally, but we have to be intentional and active in that process.

My approach is grounded in meeting folks where they are in the moment, and not asking them to feel, look, or act like someone they’re not. I believe that every person has worth and value because of their identity, and I love helping other people tap into their worth. I believe that all humans have the innate capacity to not only overcome difficult experiences, but to heal and thrive, and when we overcome difficult experiences or emotions, we are stronger and more resilient. Lasting change requires work, but when we put in that work we harness the power to define our experience rather than letting our experience define us.

No matter what has brought you to this place, change is possible. You may feel exhausted on the hamster wheel of anxiety or stuck in a pit of depression. You may be grieving a life that you used to know and struggling to find your new footing. You may just feel stagnant and in need of a fresh perspective. If therapy is the next right thing for you, I’d be honored to walk alongside you in uncovering the path forward as you discover more “next right things.”

Most of my patients describe sessions with me as "effective." Yes, I'll sit and listen, empathize, and you'll know I genuinely care about you and your life. But you'll also probably hear things from me that others may not be willing to tell you. Why? Because I want to see you live the life you are capable of and unlocking many of those interactions helps with that process! I generally use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. They are both great types of therapy that focus on behavioral strategies for change after examination of your thinking.

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.
