As a parent you might notice your child withdrawing, not interacting as usual with friends and family, getting into more fights or trouble, or struggling with self-confidence. Sleeping and eating habits and other daily routines may be affected as well.

"I help adults who are too hard on themselves, especially parents and people in pain. Do you feel like you "should" be doing things better? Do you feel guilty when you take time for yourself? Do you have mixed feelings about parenthood or your career? Learning how to treat ourselves with compassion, accepting negative emotions (which may manifest in pain) and attending to them, and balancing the needs of others with our own, is something many of us have to learn as adults. These are areas I help my clients with daily. You don't need to struggle with these issues alone. "

"Are you feeling stuck, lost, confused, or caught between contradictory feelings of hope and despair? Psychotherapy offers a reflective space to explore the sometimes vaguely understood and conflicting feelings that may inhibit us. Through therapy, a greater sense of integrity, grounding, aliveness and meaning in life is possible. Each phase of adulthood brings its own challenges. I am an intuitive, creative listener and encourage those I work with to recognize and begin to trust their own inner resources. Somewhere between deep yearning, open listening and authentic responding therapy happens--a process that can be difficult to describe and richly rewarding."
