Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to work toward feeling better about yourself and your relationships. In session you have the opportunity to discuss your concerns in a safe, caring, and supportive setting. I use an active approach to help you identify patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are not working and help you develop new patterns that can lead to reduced distress and improve your relationships. Many people I work with come with depression, eating disorders, anxiety and relationship or marital issues. Others come to talk about parenting concerns, family issues or adjustment to life changes and stresses.

When you find yourself questioning whether to seek support, I believe this is your system letting you know that old patterns, which were learned at some point to protect you in your past, are not letting you move into your future whole and well. These patterns can be set in motion from early experiences of development, traumatic experiences, transgenerational trauma, along with the ongoing experiences of oppression, both overt and subtle, in daily life that undermine your trust in your own internal resources. Let's empty the baggage and turn a painful past into a thriving future.

I GOT U! Untraditional Approach that BRINGS results. Most clients face procrastination, lack of motivation, and a feeling of being stuck and not knowing what to do on a daily basis. Many do not feel "understood" and perhaps have been told they were "dumb" or "lazy." Many want to be more independent and less tethered to their loved ones. My clients want strategies, ASAP, that they can use for better organization, planning, self-advocating, communicating AND self-care. Many clients "hate school" or dislike their jobs/relationships, but don't know how to react. Often, it's "simple but not easy." Modeling good strategies is my strength.

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.
