Congratulations!, on taking the first step to healing and growth. The relationships that we have with our families, friends and peers etc., vastly impact the ways that we view the world and how we cope with our difficulties. As we experience difficult times in our lives, it is easy to feel alone and feel like others cannot understand. I seek to be a source of support during those times. Working to build healthy relationships is a joint effort. If you are willing to BELIEVE, you will begin to ACHIEVE and ultimately RECEIVE all that is meant for you. You have what it takes and I will support you all the way. HOPE is on the Way!

Rapport is critical for the therapeutic setting; without a positive connection, therapy is a difficult road. Therapists should provide a meaningful experience, which includes a safe place to share. I believe I need to provide a nonjudgmental environment to help healing. My role as a therapist is working with clients to improve their insight, identify triggers, manage life’s dilemmas and help them manage their symptoms. The goal is to help clients identify what is needed, be it, love, joy, peace, self-control, self-image and/or happiness, I meet my clients "right where they are" w/o judgment, but with clinical insight & experience.

Trauma leaves you feeling broken, damaged, and disconnected from yourself and your loved ones. Deep down you are struggling to manage your intense emotions. You tear yourself apart when you mess up. You may feel shameful and guilty with no space left for joy. You know when you try to relax all the thoughts and memories come rushing in. Some nights it might feel like there’s a DVD playing your most painful memories and it feels unsafe. You want to hide and can’t trust anyone. You judge yourself. You see the world around you is handling things much better than you. You ask yourself “Why can't I be normal, why can’t I get over it".

You don't need someone to tell you how stressful and challenging life can be. Work is stressful. Parenting is stressful. Marriage is stressful. Given the amount of stress we experience we often have a hard time identifying what is at the core of our problems. I have found that therapy can provide much needed exploration and processing that helps us live more meaningful and fulfilling lives. In a collaborative fashion, I work with each client to find patterns in behavior and language that may not be easily recognizable by the client.

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.
