Adult, adolescent, or parent at your wits end.
You can probably come up with 100 reasons why not, but therapy is an investment in you. How long will you be the observer of your life rather than a participant? I use a collaborative approach, which enables clients the necessary skills to better separate feelings from thinking and verbalize emotions versus acting them out. I can provide you a safe, individualized space to express yourself without judgment. Together we will honestly and openly explore past messages that contribute to current behaviors you would like to change. I offer services in Canton, Southfeild & Livonia, the time is now, call today!

I work with adults and young adults working through transitions of all kinds, such as relocations, becoming a parent , loss, career changes, and newfound sobriety. Many times these life transitions bring up unresolved issues from our past, so learning new tools to cope with these moments is essential. Guiding older adolescents through challenging times also allows my playful side to flourish and offer a unique perspective to foster growth during an important time in development.

Often people come into therapy when their efforts to connect with the people who are most important to them are being misinterpreted, leading to strained relationships. In my experience, the key to shifting this dynamic is reinforcing genuine connection and nurturing emotional safety. I have experience supporting clients in managing challenges related to pregnancy and the postpartum period, relationships, life transitions, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, parenting concerns, behavioral challenges, and parent -child interactions.

We will explore past and present experiences, feelings, and the impact this has on our relationships and parenting .
Welcoming a baby into a family can bring feelings of joy, excitement, and hope. It can also bring stress, anxiety, pain, and reminders of the past. The joyful moments may get shared to social media, but often the exhaustion and the worries stay quiet. These unspoken feelings may lead to resentment, guilt, and feeling less connected with our children and families. By exploring these feelings together, we can find compassion, healthy ways to meet your needs and those of your children, and make space for more experiences of connection and joy.

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.
