I work with adolescents, adults, couples, and families to address issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, divorce, parenting problems, academic difficulties, ADHD, eating disorders, spirituality, and problems of unfulfilled development.
I offer a safe, compassionate, nonjudgmental relationship where we can work together toward growth and healing of life stressors and emotional struggles. I work with a variety of issues beginning in childhood through major adult life transitions, and am experienced with and committed to helping others use resources and inner strengths to transform their lives and reach desired goals. (**Because I am often in sessions with clients until 9PM, the easiest way to reach me is through texting. You may also email or leave a voicemail, but these are often answered in a less timely fashion. Thank you.)

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.
