Parenting

Parenting is one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences.  As a parent of three, my clients know that I can relate to how amazing and difficult it can be to be a parent. Parents come to me when they are struggling to find a way to understand, communicate with or help their child. I assist parents who are facing one of a number of challenges with their children such as social, emotional or academic difficulties, family conflict, chronic physical or mental health issues or other major life transitions such as divorce, illness or loss of a loved one. I have experience in working with the LGBTQ community and their families.

 

My approach to parenting work is collaborative and direct. Theoretically, I come from a developmental perspective where attachment theory guides my understanding of what goes on between parents and their children.

 

In my experience over the past 20 years, parents get the most out of therapy when it is practically-oriented, involves building new parenting skills and is centered around a concrete plan for how to take steps to help their child in a meaningful way.
