My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping you is centered on the idea that all human beings are looking to feel connected and loved. My specialty is working with families needing more support with parenthood and helping parents with young children. Parenthood begins during pregnancy, and many families may feel especially anxious or worried about how they will cope as parents. I can help parents understand how parenthood can trigger old wounds inside of them. Sometimes parents are struggling to connect with their children, or are struggling to communicate in a way that feels good and effective. I can help families learn a healthier language that promotes connection and understanding. Sometimes a family experiences a traumatic situation such as divorce, abuse, crime, or a death and it can be difficult to know how to feel better. I can help families begin to talk about painful feelings, that are hard to speak out loud and guide a family to learn how to heal together. Don't stay stuck in those painful feelings, and help your family stay connected in a loving and compassionate way.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Going to therapy takes a great deal of courage! Congrats on thinking about taking this important step. The biggest misconception about going to therapy is that it means you are not strong enough to deal with things on your own, when it really just means that you are going through something difficult and are not sure what step to take. Therapy is not a place that is going to tell you what to do, good therapy will offer more than anything, a safe space to be heard. It can also be education, guidance, feedback and helping you identify what feels good to you and how to seek that out. Everyone goes through difficult times at one point or another, and seeking support does not mean you are weak, it just means you are smart and resourceful.
