My Approach to Helping

Parents, are you finding yourself exhausted from having yet another argument with your spouse about what to do with your children who continue to behave poorly? Or perhaps you look around at your family and feel sad that you aren’t connecting the way you used to. Your child may be moody, anxious, or seem depressed and you don’t know why or how it came to be this way. You would like support and some extra tools in your toolbox to handle the family stress and are in dire need of some relief.

You want your family to thrive. You want to articulate boundaries in a firm, gentle way and have them be received. You want cooperation and harmony to be pillars of your family. With my support you will develop skills that feel consistent with the parent that you want to be.

I use evidence-based techniques including Parent and Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Child Therapy, Family Therapy, trauma-informed play therapy, and art therapy to uncover, heal, and provide a new way of relating to one another. If you are ready for family harmony, please reach out today.
