I have many years of experience helping clients with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, loss and grief, parenting problems, marital conflicts, teenage concerns and other life challenges.
When clients seek therapy they have often tried unsuccessfully to solve problems by themselves, and they feel frustrated. They might feel nervous about seeking help but they soon discover that talking to a trained person is supportive and more effective. I have found that listening carefully and respectfully to clients builds trust. Our work together then opens the way to a deeper understanding and resolution of conflicts - either within themselves or with others. I value my relationship with each of my clients. They deserve confidentiality as well as my full attention, and both are guaranteed.

I have a deep understanding of special needs parenting , health challenges, trauma, adoption and mental illness in the family.
Therapy for individuals, couples, or families should be a safe space to explore personal needs and goals. Using a broad lens we consider all of the factors and systems as we work collaboratively and with transparency towards strengthening your sense of yourself and the relationships that are impacting you. We consider cycles of interaction as well as vulnerabilities and survival strategies and areas where you may be getting stuck in long repetitive cycles. Together we identify new strategies and strengths to create new experiences. Therapy can be a strengthening journey of opportunity and growth.

Let's face it, it's not easy coming to the decision to seek out counseling, let alone calling a complete stranger to do so. My hope is that, if you decide to take this step to contact me, we will not be strangers for long. I have been a clinician in various capacities for over 15 years and have always worked very hard to make people feel comfortable talking to me. During those years I have developed a general practice where I have seen people for anxiety, depression, parenting , marriage and sexuality.

I have helped many adults and young adults address life issues such as marriage and divorce, parenting , professional development, difficulties with intimacy, and the impact of major life changes.
Seeking help for a personal difficulty or crisis can be overwhelming. "How can I find a therapist who will understand what I'm going through?" "Will thIs person be someone I can trust?" These are common concerns that come up when seeking professional help. I am a warm and compassionate therapist with over 30 years experience helping people with anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, parenting issues, balancing motherhood and career, and separation and loss. My goal is to provide a safe, therapeutic environment, where sensitive issues can be explored, and where new opportunities for hope and change can be realized.

Hope. Healing. Understanding. You deserve to live a fulfilling life with healthy relationships and satisfying life choices. I look forward to helping you along that journey. It is natural and common to be "blocked" or "stuck" as one travels through life's challenges. It is normal to feel sad, frustrated, confused... to feel like no one understands what you are going through, even a partner or your family members. I am an experienced clinician who has successfully helped many individuals, couples and families understand the barriers to meeting their needs and identify the ways and means to move forward.

I am experienced at working on issues of depression, anxiety, grief, marital conflict resolution, adolescent conflict resolution, parenting , and chronic illness.
I am an experienced therapist with a keen sensitivity to my clients' needs, and a deep understanding of their issues. I work with a diverse clientele, and I help my clients manage a wide spectrum of situations that arise in their lives. People come when they are overwhelmed, stressed out, experiencing work issues, marriage troubles, school problems, etc. I work with them to teach them new skills, or to help them realize that they have the skills they need, but are not using them in the most advantageous way. This process of learning and change is the essence of psychotherapy.

Parenting during marital dysfunction and dissolution.
During 46 years of practice, I have treated cases ranging from toilet training, school phobias, heart-break, good marriages and bad marriages, depressed adults, homocidal and suicidal persons, and every behavior disorder common to daily living. For the past several years my work has been largely related to family, marital, child development issues, and sadly many family court related cases. My practice is behavioral, and problem oriented. I have always attempted to avoid the, "purchase of friendship" consequences of long term therapy. I may not "cure" many persons, but I am certain that I have helped thousands.

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.
