Many challenges in life can feel like they are uniquely yours to bear alone; however, this is rarely the case. People visit me concerned about how they feel and function in key life and professional relationships. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of overlapping issues such as anxiety and depression, self-esteem, parenting children with special needs, setting limits with adult children, work/life balance issues, and sexual desire issues in committed relationships. Often these issues can be helped by addressing the common denominator of individual development within a family or relationship system.

Every day is filled with parenting battles that leave you exhausted and guilt-ridden, having lost your temper too many times. You ache for a more peaceful home and a loving relationship with your child or teen, but you don’t know how to get there. General advice and tips sound good on paper but they are not working with your child, and you don’t know why. Your energy and resilience are taking a serious hit. Worst of all, you are afraid that your child will be emotionally harmed by all the turmoil that goes on from day to day.
