Common issues addressed include: difficulty navigating division of labor, discipline, boundaries, work-life-parenting balance, finding identity outside of parenting, making parenting decisions (who knew there were SO many choices to be made?!), & maintaining romantic relationships while parenting, parenting with ADHD, & Postpartum Depression & Anxiety.
Parenthood can be confusing, isolating, & not at all what we were expecting! I am passionate about collaborating with individuals across the spectrum of pregnancy & parenthood, including new parents, queer parents, non-traditional families, non-gestational or adoptive parents, those who have experienced loss or infertility, & birth parents & those impacted by adoption. I also provide unbiased, evidence based pregnancy options counseling. I also offer support with adjustment to parenthood & guidance in gentle & respectful parenting for secure attachment.

I specialize in therapy for moms, anxiety therapy for women, and parent counseling.
Hey mama, you’re rocking it… even when you tell yourself otherwise. Still, those precious moments in the bathroom, desperately scrolling on your phone for a mental escape, are not enough to recharge... especially if you haven’t been to the bathroom alone in months. The unexpected struggles of motherhood like overstimulation, feeling touched out, carrying the mental load, and moments of loneliness catch you off guard. For the new mom, experienced mom, overwhelmed mom, overstimulated mom, and even the 'is it bedtime yet?' mom – no matter where you are in motherhood, I help you rediscover balance, find joy, and thrive.

Do you feel there aren't enough hours in the day? Are you boggled down by the seemingly never-ending demands of work, home and lack of self-care? Balancing being a parent, friend, employee, partner leaving no room for being an individual? We often find ourselves depleted at the end of the day, and honestly, sometimes first thing in the morning! This can affect how we show up in life. Imagine waking to a feeling of peace instead of the overwhelming dread of an impossible to-do list that continues to grow and doesn't include you.

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.
