I got tired of the lack of support for parents and have since shifted my work to individual parent coaching and teaching workshops and classes.
My work with women and parents is based on one simple belief: we all are capable of finding joy and satisfaction. And the right therapy can help. Overwhelming stressors, unhealthy relationships and patterns of self-sabotaging behaviors frequently get people off track. I work with clients to select the right approach to help them achieve their goals. As a therapist with over 20 years of clinical experience, I offer psychotherapy with an emphasis on mindfulness. I am also certified in EMDR.

During this Covid Safe at Home time, all sessions are conducted via telehealth. Sessions range from 30 minutes (younger clients) to 60 minutes. Insurance companies continue to cover tele-health during this time, so there should not be an additional charge outside of your typical co-pay. For children under 8, I work with parents and caregivers using Child Parent Relationship Therapy. This allows me to work individually with parents to teach skills so that you may work with your child at home. These skills are lifelong skills, which most find to be extremely helpful!

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued.” This quote, by Brené Brown, has become a centerstone for the beginning of a healthy therapeutic relationship for my practice. I believe connection is the foundation for positive growth.

Life often feels like a series transitional periods and sudden changes happening all at once. It can be overwhelming, confusing and, sometimes, lonely. It is the way we move through those times in life that matters, and there is no shame in searching for support. As women, we often feel we must have every piece of life together and when one piece goes missing from the puzzle, we feel as though we have failed each step of the way. Little do we know, there is always hope.

Living authentically and compassionately leads to inner peace. Trauma and distress can cause a plethora of confusing responses, making that peace seem unobtainable. Each person brings their own worldview, experiences, strengths and clues to unburdening oneself from the overwhelm. Healing and moving forward can seem daunting. Therapy transforms the mind-body system, leading to self-energy and clarity. Now also offering training for schools and organizations on becoming trauma-informed!

I believe that everyone tries to get through life the best they can. Yet many of us find ourselves struggling to meet our goals, improve our relationships, or we just don’t feel happy. My approach to therapy is to work together in understanding what is preventing you from feeling your best, finding ways to help you feel better, and letting you know you are not alone in the process.

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.
