Nothing is more important or challenging than parenting. I offer help and hope as a parent coach for support and direction in enhancing your skills, or the deeper assistance of therapy for trauma-affected children. I help to clarify trauma's developmental impact and effect on the danger response system, attachment, self-regulation, and competency. I encourage attachment through helping you and your child with attunement, attentiveness, emotion control, consistency, and using routines and rituals. I help parents understand and deal with extreme behaviors, such as lying, stealing, food-hoarding, self-mutilation, and aggression.

My focus is to empower families by improving their relationships and communication so family members are more of a support than a burden to each other. Family issues that I commonly treat are couple's communication, sexual issues in a relationship, mixed-agenda couples (where one is considering a divorce), co-parenting after a divorce, behavior issues with children, as well as abuse or neglect in families. I also help families where a member struggles with self-injury, depression, or anxiety.

As a concerned parent, you may have experienced sleepless nights wondering how to help your child, which can lead to frustration and feelings of isolation.
Have you noticed that your child isn’t responding when spoken to, or isn’t initiating speech, despite having the ability to speak? Are you receiving school reports that your child’s behaviors are out of control? Is your preschooler being threatened with expulsion?

**Accepting new clients! Openings morning and night!** Finding time to reconnect with your family can be challenging. With the addition of children, extended families, school, work, and a pandemic, relationships can become strained. So easily can we find ourselves in survival mode where communication is limited and we do what we must to get through the day. I help families and couples identify issues, and facilitate change by rebuilding communication, resolving family conflict, and reflecting on the impact of the family system.

Over the years and after receiving thousands of initial calls and emails from clients, it is clear that many are unsure of what they need or where to go. We find great pleasure in helping clients navigate this process. As a group practice we are able to provide services for a variety of needs: anxiety, addictions, pain management, depression, relationship issues, psychological testing, individual, life transitions and even helping clients who just want to live their best life! We stand out in our efforts to make this process as smooth as possible. Many providers boast about their training in a particular treatment approach (and this is important) but research suggests that the interventions are only part of the story. The fit between client and clinician, the wellbeing of the clinician, the ease of access and the experience of the treatment process matter as much, and sometimes more, than the particular treatment model used. Pillars of Wellness was founded with the hope of ensuring an ideal client-clinician fit and providing both clients and clinicians with a positive experience. We let our clinicians excel at their craft by giving them the space to create their ideal practice.
