Parenting Sessions: Want answers to your specific parenting struggles? We will work together to develop effective tools to address you family's unique needs.
Individual Sessions: Respect, compassion and empathy are the cornerstones of my counseling practice.

Most importantly, you'll learn to view yourself through a more compassionate lens, building a calmer and more joyful inner experience and a more confident and caring self-view.

This can be individual sessions with you, child-parent sessions, individual sessions with children, and family sessions with you and your partner or other family members.
I’m a child psychotherapist that works with parents, children, and adolescents. You might be here because you have questions about your child’s behavior, wish for a more satisfying parent-child relationship, or are overwhelmed from the stresses of parenthood. Perhaps painful memories from your own childhood are impacting your parenting and family. Becoming a parent is one of the most profound transitions in the adult life, and it naturally brings up shifts in our external and internal lives. It’s my honor to support individuals, couples, families, and children through this period and beyond.

EVERYONE NEEDS A COACH. Everyone faces challenges for which they are not adequately prepared at some point in life: an executive leadership position, a career change or retirement, a creative block, difficulties forming or sustaining a romantic relationship, the complexities of parenting, divorce, or disability. We usually expect ourselves to just do whatever needs to be done, on our own. That attitude often leads to unanticipated hardships and difficulties, which could be avoided by seeking the appropriate counsel.

When relationship challenges arise, it can be more difficult to feel connected, in alignment, and in choice. Most of us are doing our best, but if our strategies aren't effective we can sometimes feel stuck, distressed, or confused. By bringing awareness to our relational patterns in a compassionate and non-judgmental environment, I believe we build capacity to take on our unique challenges as a team with the important people in our life. My goal is to support people to feel greater safety, self worth, regulation, collaboration and alignment in their lives and relationships.

Asking for extra support can be one of the most valuable and loving actions you can take as a parent.
Does your child have emotional outbursts seemingly out of nowhere? Does your child seem distant, sad and disconnected? Is your child having trouble expressing him/herself or connecting with peers? Being a parent can be the most meaningful and fulfilling experience we will ever have in our lives, and also sometimes the most challenging, exhausting, and emotionally overwhelming. The truth is that no matter how strongly we love our children, and how powerfully we want the best for them, life's challenges can still get in the way of our kids being able to thrive as their best, most emotionally regulated selves.

While this can cause strain at any time, it can be especially prominent during pregnancy and the first few years after children are born.

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.
