Are you or your child feeling overwhelmed, anxious or sad? Or are your feeling lost, lonely and afraid? Is family-life not what you envisioned or has home become a battlefield? Life is complicated! I help individuals (children/teen/adults) & families learn how to cope with everyday stressors, navigate relationship issues and manage symptoms related to anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD & low self-esteem.

As a clinical psychologist with over 25 years experience in private practice, I specialize in working with couples and individuals around depression, relationship issues, and parenting . I am interested in the here and now of current relationships, but also pay attention to how past relationships and family history may play a role in current problems. I have a particular expertise in helping couples deal with affairs, infertility issues, adjustment to new parenthood and coping with children with special needs.

In my practice, I work closely with my clients to help them sort through their challenges at hand. I treat adults who may be facing stressful life transitions or struggling to cope with feelings of depression or anxiety. Every person has unique needs and personality, which are considered in developing a course of treatment. Helping clients develop insight to patterns of thinking and relating to others can offer clarity and hope. At times, utilizing skill-development tools can provide additional success in reducing stress, providing strategies for parenting challenges, or resolving relationship conflict.

Being a parent is a gift. However, some days we can find ourselves wondering if we are doing our best by our children, our partners and even ourselves. With life's demands - work, household responsibilities, other activities - one can find themselves feeling as if they are stretched thin. Stress that is left unchecked can run the risk of escalating to a severe presentation of anxiety or depression. This can in turn affect the way we parent and resolve family conflict. As a Mother and Wife I bring this relateability to our conversations.

Sometimes getting a different perspective on a situation can totally change the way you handle it and how your kids react. In providing that lens, I hope to help you see motivations and patterns of behavior emerge rather than kids who “never listen” and “always break the rules”. By helping you make small changes in the way you parent that over time, I hope to help you make big changes in your family's happiness.

In addition to individual psychotherapy with adults, I also enjoy helping adults with parenting skills, navigating normal life transitions and the challenges of change at all stages of life.

I employ concrete solution based methods in order to help my clients learn about themselves and communicate more effectively with others.

Do you feel anxious, overwhelmed, stressed out and doubtful? I partner with individuals and parents who feel anxious, overwhelmed or uncertain and bring them to calm, confident and hopeful. I work with both men and women using empathy and listening. I will work alongside you, empower you and guide you toward freedom from guilt and worry. With specialized training in peripartum mental health I can support you as you explore parenting and recognize when the "baby blues" have become more than you can handle. Maybe its anxiety about your baby's safety or your ability to take care of a little one. Are you ready to gain freedom?

I have specialized training in parent -infant therapy and preschool/ toddler development.
I specialize in perinatal and infant mental health. Perinatal psychological issues occur in the times before, during, and/or after a pregnancy. Postpartum depression is the most often talked about condition, but symptoms are not always limited to AFTER a child is born. These feelings can be extremely distressing, especially during a time when others are expecting you to be happy. You may be suffering after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or even death during pregnancy. I can offer a comfortable, safe place for you to begin to heal and move forward.

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.
