I've specialized in relationship and parenting issues, particularly inter-racial relationship issues; alcohol/drug abuse, codependency, adult children of alcoholics, and family of origin issues.
Does being in love mean being in pain? Are you and your significant other having a hard time communicating or getting your needs met? Are you confused, anxious, sad or angry? Are you feeling less motivated? Having difficulty concentrating or sleeping? Do you feel distracted and find it hard to follow through? Are you questioning your goals or feel stuck? Are you questioning your family of origin and feel you have issues from the past that are unresolved? Are you grieving the loss of someone? Do you worry about yourself or your significant other and their bad habits? Are you a survivor?

I am the founder of the Relationship Center of Milwaukee, a group practice that focuses on providing couples with the skills, insights, and courage to develop themselves and their relationships. My 30-year experience as a psychologist and psychoanalyst has reinforced my belief that people heal, change, and grow in connection to others. Love relationships are simultaneously the greatest source of comfort and happiness in our lives, but also potentially the greatest source of intense stress and misery. Yet, we keep on trying. The thirst for good partnership is unquenchable.

Change is inevitable, they say...and it’s hard. Whether the change you're experiencing is unexpected or was hard sought-after, the effect is largely the same: it leaves you feeling disoriented, misunderstood and alone. In place of the control and mastery you once felt in your life, there is now chaos. You find yourself either paralyzed by in-decision or fighting desperately to find a foothold, but you just keep slipping...

At times it can feel like you’re hiding in plain sight. On the outside, you are admired for your attention to detail and ability to juggle multiple demands with apparent ease. You are an overachiever, going above and beyond, all while silently grappling with inner chaos. You're an expert in the art of people-pleasing, a well-honed skill that serves as a way to navigate interactions and avoid the sting of rejection or misunderstanding. You carefully plan your days to maintain some sense of control and order. Yet, despite your achievements and the admiration of others, you still feel a deep sense of inadequacy, and you are tired.

I would be honored to walk this very important path of self discovery with you. I believe the foundation of good therapy is the trusting relationship developed between the therapist and client. I come to all sessions as my genuine, non-judgmental, compassionate self and you will see this immediately. Once this relationship is developed, a place of safety is built, upon which opportunities for positive insight and growth occur.

Bodhi: "Awakening" or "enlightenment" . Humans have an innate need for connection. We long to be acknowledged, accepted, and understood. Often, however, we move through life unsure of who we really are and how to form genuine connections with others. We shape-shift to fit the mold of others' expectations which can lead to feelings of fear, resentment, and anger. This disconnect can cause interpersonal conflict and impact our families, friendships, and careers. Sometimes it feels as if we stumble through life with no direction. What would it mean to have a sense of awakening to oneself? to be enlightened to the authentic you?

Anxiety and depression take control of you every morning before you can even hit the snooze on your alarm. Getting the kids ready for school and taking the dog for a walk have become herculean tasks – to say nothing of your work day and connecting with your partner. You manage through the day; dinner gets cooked and homework gets checked, but you think, “This is not how I am meant to live my life - continually wanting and wishing for more.” Not knowing a way through this just adds to the overwhelm and worry. You take a breath and wonder, “How did I even get here? How do I get out of this funk? Is it even possible to get out?”

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.
