It's hard to talk to friends or family members about the lack of joy or imbalance of struggle in parenting .
You have managed or contained life's challenges until it doesn't work anymore. The experiences of the past do not have to interfere with your joy in the present or future. My goal is to create a safe place for you to explore, learn, and create a new way of being in relationships and the world. I specialize in working with individuals and families that have been impacted by traumatic experiences, complex grief, attachment and relationship ruptures. Loss often involves trauma and trauma always involves grief.

I have had the honor of supporting clients through a variety of concerns and difficulties including childhood and adult trauma, relationship issues, parenting and co- parenting struggles, gender identity issues, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, and life transitions.
Life can be both messy and beautiful. Life also brings so many opportunities to dive deeper, to transform, and to learn how to love ourselves and others with open hearts. I believe that we all deserve a space to let our feelings be felt. We all deserve to have our experiences witnessed and held with compassion and kindness. My hope is that the therapeutic relationship is a healing one and that the space we create together supports growth and curiosity. My approach to this work is rooted in compassion and human-to-human connection. I believe that authentic connection supports our capacity to grow and change.

My clients don't come to therapy to hear someone nod and agree with everything they say...that's not worth their time or money. They want real help. They want to know "what to do" and "how to fix it" because they are struggling with depression, severe anxiety, relationship problems, trauma, suicidal thoughts, parenting issues, and other painful situations. They are looking for a true expert that they can actually talk to. I'm a member of PSYPACT which means I can see clients in every state which is a member of PSYPACT and I am also licensed in MA

My areas of research and special clinical interest include marriage and health, research informed clinical practice, couple therapy, trauma, sex therapy, parenting issues, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.
My private practice is different than most therapy practices. First, my practice is small. My job as director of the Lipscomb Family Therapy Center and position on the faculty in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Lipscomb University allow me to limit my caseload to 5-7 clients weekly. This assures that my clients receive the attention they deserve. Second, my role in academia places me at the forefront of the field of marriage and family therapy. This means that my practice is informed by scientific research that most private practice therapists can't easily access.

I focus on child therapy for ages 3-8 and parenting .
Family. This word may bring up feelings of warmth, or it may bring up feelings of anxiety, suffering, or helplessness. You want to reclaim the feelings of safety, security, contentment, peace, and love that once accompanied your hopes or thoughts of what your family could be. Or maybe your goal is to start off on the right foot, with your recent or upcoming marriage, or to ensure that your child is off to an emotionally healthy start in their younger years. Whichever the case, healthy families require focus, intentional work, and can sometimes use outside assistance from a caring professional.

Equally important, I am parent to a young adult with executive function deficits.
Many times individuals with attention issues are not in need of traditional psychotherapy, yet need help getting themselves organized & reaching their goals. This is due to difficulties in planning, organizing, & time management. ADHD coaching can help. Coaching is a collaborative process in which clients, with guidance & support from a coach, set & pursue goals that are important to them by developing skills, systems, & structures needed to achieve those goals. I provide ADHD coaching for High School & College students & women with ADHD facing executive function challenges. I also offer parent coaching for parents of preteens.

Children and adolescents often experience difficulties that affect their lives in dramatic ways. Whether it be a change in the family system, a problem at school, or a bumpy journey through adolescence, growing up can be a very challenging time. As a result, kids often display a change in behavior, appearance, or academic achievement that may be of concern to their parents, teachers, and families. These changes are often a cry for help and can be best treated by individual or family counseling.

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.
