With you, the parent or caregiver, I strive to build a collaborative partnership, learning from one another what solutions and approaches will work best for your child and your family, at this time.
We often think of childhood as a time of simplicity, joy, curiosity, and play. Yet for many, it is a time of stress, trauma, anxiety, and/or anger. Impulsivity, attention difficulties, learning delays, anxiety, and aggression often impede success at school, disrupt family relationships, and hinder friendships. My goal, as a play therapist, is to assist your child in processing their conflicts and struggles to support balance and peace. By meeting your child in their world of play, they experience being seen and understood, while developing skills of self-regulation, communication, and confidence.

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.

Each of us are unique and so are our struggles. As unique as we are, there are times in our lives when we feel challenged, stuck, exhausted, overwhelmed, or lost. It can be beneficial to seek help from someone outside our situations to help us find ways to make positive change and move through these trying times. I see children, adolescents, teens, adults, couples, and families navigating stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, life changes and transitions, relationships, and grief. Sessions take place in a warm, supportive, and non-judgemental tele-health atmosphere.

Children seek to be seen, heard, and understood by their parents, but they can’t do it alone. They need help in understanding their complex emotional worlds. Children do this best through their natural language of play, utilizing various mediums to process emotions. Other times, children need more than validation or tools for expression. Studies consistently show that children who suffer from anxiety have less structure and boundaries in their homes. The unpredictability of daily life can be incredibly stressful to children, and they often need family systems in place to reassure them that everything will be okay.

Need help changing your life? I am the type of therapist for those individuals that don't have tons of time to figure out their past life issues. Through assessments, I am able to develop and implement a future focused plan with clear goals and an estimated timeframe for achievement. I am more of a non-traditional therapist & most of my clients have tried and failed at more traditional clinical therapy. My clients are usually referred by word of mouth as a last resort in hopes to establish major life change.

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.
