My Approach to Helping

Are you a Mom Struggling to Find the Joy in Motherhood?

You are exhausted and overwhelmed. You need someone who gets it. I can help.

You are a Mom and You're Suffering
You are burning the candle at both ends trying your best to be everything to everybody, but it is not going well. You may be a more seasoned mother, or you may be pregnant, postpartum, or even just trying to start a family; but, it is so much harder than you thought. You may have young children who need you, but you aren't feeling good enough to help them. Worse yet, you are worried you may be part of the problem. Or maybe you have older children, even adult children, and you are at a loss about what is happening with them and in your relationship. You thought you were close, but lately, it has been so confusing. You might be wondering what to do now that they are growing up, in college, out of the house, or even married. Now that you have an empty nest, it might just feel empty. Maybe you are grieving the death of a parent, or struggling to help your parent(s) because they are aging, but it all feels like too much.

Your Relationships are Suffering
You are feeling lonely and disconnected from other people in your life.  You want more support, more fun, and more friends, but you never quite find the time or the confidence to create these relationships.  Maybe only better mothers or very lucky women have time for that.  You aren’t sure if you deserve better.   If you did a better job, if you were just more organized or something, maybe your life would feel more like other mother’s lives. Other mothers seem so much happier.

Maybe you don't have a partner to talk to, or you try and talk about these feelings with them, but one of you always ends up getting defensive, leaving the room, or yelling.  Each time you try to talk about things,  it ends up feeling like a blame game and both of you feel criticized and hurt.
Your Work is Suffering
These feelings can make you feel like you are just circling the drain. You are distracted at work and you worry you will never get the job you want.  You went to school because you wanted a fulfilling career, but now you feel unmotivated and bored and you don’t have the confidence or the energy to make the changes at work that you need.

At the same time, you’re worried that work is taking too much from you and you don’t have enough gas left in the tank to be the mother you want to be.  Maybe you have children you know need extra time, attention, and care to reach their full potential, but you feel like you are failing at meeting their needs.  It just feels like it is too much trying to meet everyone’s needs and yours are not even on the list.
“Resilience is the courage to grow from challenges, to bloom where we are planted, no matter how tough the soil.”

My approach is to help you learn how to take care of yourself so you can take care of others the way that you want and the way that they need. I know you are dedicated to your family, and I want to help you create the kind of family you have always wanted. I also know that for this to happen, you need to feel good too. Your happiness and serenity is the key to everything else. Using several different therapy approaches such as ACT, CBT, and Mindfulness and Self-Compassion Therapy, I create a warm, safe therapy environment that provides the soil for you to grow into the woman and the mother you have always wanted to be. Sometimes even with a good laugh.

Decide to invest in yourself so you can feel the peace and happiness that can come from motherhood. You deserve these years to be like you expected, rich, satisfying, and meaningful. I can help you get to where you want to go. See for more details.

More Info About My Practice

I have been working with mothers for 20-plus years. In the past, I have also worked with kids, adolescents, couples, and families. With me, you will be getting an unusual combination of personal experience, education, expertise, and PASSION. What if the world's tyrants had warm, nurturing, loving relationships with their mothers? Mothers can change the world, yet it is the hardest job ever taken on, and despite this fact, most of the time, it is taken on willingly.

I started specializing in postpartum depression after nearly losing my bananas (a clinical term) after giving birth to my first baby. I spent so many sleepless nights trying to figure out if I was getting it right. Was I spending enough "quality" time with my baby, my other children, my husband, and my family, and still giving enough to my clients, and my practice?

Over time, I realized my favorite part of the day was (most often) the time I spent with mothers. I was spending a lot of my time helping mothers to help their kids, and not to forget to take care of themselves. This is when I decided to specialize in working with women at all stages of motherhood. From making the decision to have children, pregnancy and postpartum issues, struggling to manage toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged, middle or high schoolers, to mothers who are facing an empty nest and trying to decide what is next. All moms need a solid support system. It is critical that we find a way to "mother" other mothers no matter what stage of motherhood they are currently in. Motherhood never ends, as we all know, there is always more to do.

So, this is what I do now. I work with mothers who feel overwhelmed and are struggling with anxiety, and self-doubt. Mothers who are trying to balance the needs of their family and yet still find something left for themselves. Mothers who are devoted to their families, but need help finding their confidence so they can feel joy and fulfillment while raising their children. Mothers who yearn to feel capable and confident and strive to be the best mother they can be.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

I need to know about the path you have been on. You might not have gotten what you needed in childhood or a previous relationship. You might have unresolved pain from the past that needs to heal. I can help you heal and turn your pain into growth.

I need to know about your life right now and what you want to change. What do you want for yourself? Who do you want to be?

I need to know about your dreams and what you want your life to be in the future. Together we can figure this out even if you aren't sure. I will help you build the skills, the confidence, and the strength to meet the future with everything you need to make it what you want. We will do it together. After all, it's always better to have a partner when taking on a project.
