Success, change, happiness, hope, kindness, balance - these, among other traits, are things that we strive for & work towards in life but at times feel like they are completely & totally out of reach. Sometimes there are roadblocks & barriers that make the future seem unobtainable and that there is nothing but darkness ahead. It's moments like these that define us. When we are at a crossroads and important choices need to be made - this is where I come in. I wish to offer support, guidance, and help with the hope and intention that together, change can happen, skills can be built and goals can be attained.

My practice and interventions start where you are. I specialize in working with clients struggling with a wide range of stressors. I do not believe in a one size fits all model, and will pull from different approaches utilizing interventions that best fit your needs. We will work together to develop a treatment plan with achievable goals that makes sense for you. My training as a yoga instructor guides my interventions in being keenly aware of the mind/body connection and the impact of emotional health on the body.

When we change the way we think, we change the way we live. Perspective is key. I believe counseling is a space to explore the thoughts that hinder success and then transform them! Reshape the way we’ve learned to communicate with ourselves and with others. I am passionate about helping people develop new beliefs about themselves that support their values. What do you value? What are you currently doing that aligns with your values? What’s getting in the way? How do you overcome all of that? We live in a fast-paced society but counseling allows us to slow down, reflect, and figure out how to achieve our goals.

Please note: I am currently not taking new therapy clients. In my 20+ years of experience I have found that therapy works because it offers the time and a safe space to explore our internal world and our relationship with others. Research shows that we can transform negative self beliefs and feelings by processing childhood trauma. I specialize in body-centered psychotherapies, EMDR and IFS, to achieve this goal. Many diagnoses are missed, such as PTSD and ADHD in adults until they listen to their bodies. Clients will learn that our bodies possess the capacity to be rewired when we heal trauma, and will regain their full lives.

Taking the step to seek counseling services can feel overwhelming. It has taken time to create the circumstances that have brought you to pursue counseling, and it will take time to actively address these issues and concerns- to see and feel long lasting results. However, the decision to seek services is movement forward- it has the feeling of hope, desire, and motivation on your part in beginning to make changes or increasing your ability to cope and manage life.

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.
