Every day, we must fit into many different roles no matter who we are and these roles include employee, parent , child, student, partner, etc.
Do you ever feel like all you can do is throw your arms up in the air? Do you just want to feel like a whole person again? Whether it is work, school, finances, relationships, children or some other source of stress, an excellent way to get back on confident feet is to work with a skilled clinician such as myself. Therapy can help build coping skills to manage life challenges, gain skills to redirect misguided or distorted thoughts and process emotions in order to have a better understanding of personal needs and how to meet them.

Working in a variety of settings over many years, I have developed an expertise in many different areas including but not limited to trauma, autism spectrum disorders, developmental transitions, depression, anxiety, parenting , grief, prenatal and postnatal loss, and sexual identity.
Everyday living is not without stressors. How we react to events or interact in relationships can be a struggle as well as puzzling. Why do we feel the way we do? Why do we continue to make the same mistakes over and over again? How can our perceptions be so different from others? How do early experiences impact our perceptions, feelings, and behaviors? I provide a safe, comforting environment for you to explore and reflect on your past and recent experiences, feelings, and relationships. My approach is to facilitate change based on your expressed needs and goals.

I believe it takes a village to raise a family, work, get a higher education; but for some of us, we don't have a village. We don't have support from the people in our lives that should be there to support us when we need it. This lack of support can make us feel isolated, misunderstood, stuck; and for those of us suffering from additional stressors such as mental health concerns, anxiety, depression, lack of work, grief, chronic illness, relationship problems, it can feel very lonely.

I believe we all have the ability to make the changes we want to in our lives. At times, however, we may feel stuck, unmotivated, or unsure of how to move forward. Using a strengths based approach I enjoy supporting clients as they move through challenges to live their best and most authentic lives. I believe in client-directed therapy, meaning that you are in control. Goals are based on the client's expressed needs and concerns, and are reviewed and altered to make sure that together we are always working towards the best outcome.

People start therapy for different reasons. Sometimes people come in to see me during a period of transition - starting or ending a relationship or school, moving to a new city, beginning a new job! Maybe you feel as though you're on a constant treadmill, always moving but never seeing anything change around you. I'll work with you to find what's getting in the way of you getting what you really want from your life.

Being a parent is HARD. WORK. But, you see nothing but perfect lives on Instagram. Earth-tone dressed kids in pumpkin patches, professionally decorated homes, international family vacations. Excuse me, what? You were already struggling, but now you feel downright crazy that this isn't you. You're not sure how you're supposed to feel, but you do know the demands are more than ever. Work, appointments, sicknesses, school, sports, activities, and seeing family and friends. You're drowning in stress, but you won't say it because you feel guilty for not being happy about having the life most people want. You are not alone. I promise you.

You're an amazing woman who's exhausted by life's competing demands. You put pressure on yourself to "do it all." You smile and take on the day, avoiding your emotional pain by staying busy. You have parenting , caregiving, relationship, or life transition issues that are being ignored, leading to anxiety, depression, medical issues, low motivation, and lack of fulfillment. Your past and current traumas are impacting your sleep and daily functioning. You've realized you need help, and you feel bad about that too. After all, you SHOULD be able to handle it all and keep smiling!

My approach with clients recognizes that most people are looking for tangible help, don't have a lot of time between work and family, and want to feel like they are moving toward a better understanding of solutions to address their difficulties. My work with clients acknowledges these issues. I take a very active role in counseling to explore the options with my clients, provide new knowlege of issues where relevant, and help an individual to reach their potential. Issues related to marital/partner, parenting /child, family,work,school,stress, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse are all areas I work with.

Treatment is results oriented, which means we work together at the beginning to define the changes that are meaningful to you. In a basic sense, psychotherapy is for thinking about feelings. We are all part of systems, be they family, work or society. The outcome is more freedom to be yourself. All inquiries referrals scheduling by phone: please call 508.885.3861.

I also provide parent -friendly workshops and Adult ADD bootcamps.
As a clinical neuropsychologist I work with clients to identify areas of cognitive strength and weakness and relate those patterns to known profiles of brain-behavior relationship. The process involves an interview, collateral contacts, and carefully selected standardized assessment of brain and emotional functioning. A neuropsychological evaluation may help identify dementia, direct therapies after traumatic brain injury, or tease out ADHD from learning disorder and other developmental conditions.

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.
