We could all benefit from support at times. Someone who is willing to listen. Someone to provide an outside perspective. We can work together to help you stay connected to your positive parenting skills, your need to find calm or perhaps work through a past trauma. You may be at the beginning of a journey, in the middle or further along. Wherever you are, connect with someone who provides encouragement and perspective. Children and families are welcome! We live in an ever changing world. Let's do something to help strengthen our foundation...for life!

I will be accepting new clients in January 2023. Please reach out if you’re interested in working together. Becoming a mother is one of the most impactful and powerful transitions in a woman’s life. Pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period are an emotional and physical rollercoaster filled with joy, sadness, anxiety, hope, grief, exhaustion, and beauty. Becoming a parent shifts your identity, relationships, priorities, and emotions. If you are feeling overwhelmed with these immense changes, I am here to help. You are not alone and you deserve support.

For parenting I like to use skill building; when a parent knows what they are going to do, they tend to be able to stay patient.
I like to start by building trust and finding out what goals you want to set for yourself. A safe, encouraging atmosphere with no authoritarian or shaming attitudes is important. Humor is useful with couples, families or teens. Role-plays are a fun way to practice new relationship skills.

I use a holistic approach that draws upon a broad array of therapeutic resources depending upon what best suits your particular needs and situation. Clients are able to cultivate strengths and helpful skills along this therapeutic journey that help to improve identified difficulties.

Everybody has a story. How we feel about and interpret that story has a significant impact on our quality of life and how we perceive the events that occur around us. In the therapeutic relationship, we’re given the freedom and support to explore the countless memories, experiences, and feelings that make us who we are. From that relationship we gain insight and understanding that allows us to be more intentional in not only how we act, but in how we feel about the important people around us.

I believe that every person is unique and has potential to grow and become the best version of themselves. Often the judgement of others guides our life choices and keeps us from meeting our full potential. When you truly accept yourself you can then make choices that lead you to who you really are. You are the expert of your life and my job is to help guide you through the process of self discovery and meet your goals.

In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
