Transitional periods of becoming a parent , having addiction in the family, changes in a relationship, divorce, etc., can leave us feeling drained, restless, overwhelmed and sometimes even angry. Do you have anxious thoughts that keep you up at night? Do you struggle with negative self-talk? Do you feel alone even when you are in a group of people? Do you hide behind false cheerfulness? Do you put yourself down on what you 'should' or 'should not' have done? Do you often compare yourself to others?

No one escapes life without experiencing worry at some point. However, if you are consumed with debilitating worry and irrational fear about things you can’t control and it’s intruding on your social life, work performance, and general happiness, you are experiencing more than just typical stress. Anxiety is draining and colors your every thought. You may feel anxious about your future, experience constant worry about your loved ones, or feel anxious without knowing why. You may experience several physical symptoms like stomach pain, headaches, and muscle tension. You feel like it is impossible to relax.

Finding a therapist can be an overwhelming task. You don't want to pick some name off a list. If you are looking for help, you might feel at the end of your rope, you don't know what else to do, like nobody understands or "gets" you, or that you need some simple guidance. We can help. Therapy isn't magic. Most people intellectually know what they need to do, they just need guidance, encouragement, or new skills to get there.

Wanting to make a change in your life, however big or small, can be a very difficult but important realization. Working through options, concerns, and even generating new possibilities in a caring, confidential, nonjudgmental environment are all part of the therapy process. There are always choices and even the seemingly roughest of situations can always be managed. It can be a very exciting and rewarding journey that I have seen countless times and am privileged to be a part of. I have had extensive experience in substance abuse, anxiety/ depression, and relationship/ family issues as well as other life challenges.

Do you feel stuck? That something is missing but you're not sure what? How about that you know what's missing and it's being true to who you are? Throughout the years of experience that I have working with children, adolescents, young adults, and adults I have learned that at the basis of all of our life experiences, we all wish to be heard, accepted, and to feel connected to ourselves, others, and our emotions. By being in a safe therapeutic relationship that accepts you as you are, you are able to unburden the heaviness that you've been carrying and with this new feeling of relief, there is hope for something new and healing.

Whether you're seeking help for yourself or a loved one, taking the first step toward recovery can be overwhelming. It takes courage to reach out to another and ask for help. You have just taken that first step! Soon you won't have to walk the path alone any further. Whatever challenge you are facing, it will be far more manageable if you have someone at your side to share the load. Relationship problems, anxiety, depression or preventing substance relapse does not have to stop you from living the life that you dream for yourself.

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.
