Frustrated? Down? Simply want to be functioning as well as the next person? Anxious just going to the grocery store? Is your teen having trouble getting their homework done, hiding away in their room, and saying everything is, "fine." Daily living isn't easy. There's really no way around it. It's hard for you, it's hard for your kids (if you have them), it's hard for all of us. The great thing is we are not alone and we don't have to go through it alone. Life is so much better when we talk things through and get support. So many times we think we are the only ones feeling this way...sad, anxious, angry, hopeless...we aren't.

There are times in our lives when we feel lost, trapped or unable to find peace in our daily routine. We try to cope and find solace, but may end up feeling more defeated. While it may feel impossible, I believe we all have immense strength and resilience to find our way. In order to find that inner strength, I believe it is essential to discover what is causing the symptoms. Through this uncovering, we can start our journey of healing and growth. I facilitate awareness and deeper understanding to the what and why these thoughts are all consuming. At your own pace, I offer space to challenge patterns that no longer serve you.

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.

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.
