Whether you are concerned about your child or are struggling yourself, know that you are not alone and that counseling can help. Together we will create a therapy plan to specifically address your concerns and to help you meet your goals for yourself and/or your child. We will build on your existing strengths and help you to find solutions. I offer a warm and supportive environment for children, teens, adults, and families to overcome challenges and create the lives they want to live
Parenting is never easy, but sometimes it can feel especially difficult and overwhelming. Maybe your child is suddenly acting out in new ways, and you wonder what has facilitated this change. Your child might be talking back, throwing tantrums or refusing to follow rules at home or at school
Adolescence can be a very confusing and lonely time. You may feel as though no one really understands you or what you are going through. Sometimes, it might seem as though the adults in your life talk to or treat you as though you are still a child.
Whether your child is five, fifteen or twenty-five, parenting is the hardest job there is. You might be feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Perhaps you are plagued by guilt because sometimes you feel as though you love your child, but you struggle to “like” him or her.
Many women struggle with feelings of self-doubt, low self-worth, hopelessness and helplessness. You may feel overwhelmed by your emotions and confused about what could be causing you so much pain. Maybe you suspect that something is wrong with you, and you fear that you might be broken in some way.
