Are you feeling anxious and out of control when you think about your child? Do you have questions about relationships or parenting ? I have a background in both development and psychotherapy. I teach parents about development and help them learn what is "getting in the way" of parenting the way they want to. I also help couples "get on the same page" with parenting . Children come here to enhance development, learn social skills and have good self esteem. Children with developmental, behavioral and sensory concerns find a safe place to grow and explore. Parent Coaching is also available.

I work with individuals in a variety of contexts including, perinatal mental health and birth trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, stress management, confidence building, self-esteem and self worth issues, teen stress, Autism, communication and social skills building in teens and young adults, divorce, parenting skills and new parent stress.
I view each client as unique. What works for one will not work for everyone and therefore I utilize several therapeutic approaches in order to best suit my patient's needs. I am energetic, warm and empathic and push people in a supportive way to make the necessary changes in their life. I use humor and provide a relaxing environment for people to feel safe and to grow in. I have a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a pre-doctoral degree in Marriage and Family therapy and I am licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist.

You can't stop worrying, even when it seems like there's nothing to worry about. You feel tired, irritated, or constantly on autopilot. Socializing is overwhelming and exhausting. This is not the life you pictured for yourself.

You've lived with fear, emotional pain, and/or loss for a long time. Maybe it feels like all of your life. Maybe this is a relatively new experience. You may have heard hurtful things like "suck it up", or "deal with it" almost as if this is all your fault or you can cope with this all by yourself. It's not, and you don't have to! It doesn't have to feel this way. I would like to help you find the way to make things better. To feel better! Talking to the right therapist can help you not only feel better but ultimately become the best version of you that you can be.

If you are suffering with anxiety and/or depression, or anger issues, you know the pain and distress they can cause in our daily lives. What we overlook is the important scientific understanding that many of these problems are also partly the result of chronic stress, that has affected our brains and minds at some point in our physiological and psychological development, and the various coping styles we have developed to survive within that stressful environment. Scientific studies have shown that these 'coping habits' we developed, can be changed with awareness and training of the workings of our minds.

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.
