I absolutely love this crazy role in life called parenting. It truly is the longest and shortest time! As often as we’re told to enjoy every moment and as much as we truly want to, we all know that some moments are just awful. Sometimes we don’t get sleep, fight with our spouse and feel like we’re failing as a parent. It’s these moments that I want to help you with. I really struggled after having our first and grew passionate about helping parents during the (sometimes traumatic) waves of parenthood. There are so many opinions out there that it’s essential to start with your expectations of what kind of parent you want to be. And then, you work to accept yourself as you are. I’d love to help you with that.
Seeing kids as young as 3 years old, I love working with kids on expressing emotions, communicating, processing events, and learning the give and take of relationships. I involve parents in the process because you are the most important relationship in your child’s life. Together we can work through the challenges you see at home and what you’d like to focus on during therapy.
With so many things going on these days, it’s easy to find yourself lost in multiple life events, sometimes losing your footing. Whether you need someone to help interpret what direction you want to take or simply need a collaborator to sort out your choices and priorities, I am happy to walk alongside you. Counseling can be one of the many tools you use when you need one.
