“We are fighting all the time!”
“We never talk about anything real!”
“My partner and I can’t agree how to approach anything regarding our family.”
“The only way I get my kids to listen to me is by yelling.”
I have worked with numerous families since 2007 as they maneuver through the many challenges faced in parenting and family life. I am passionate about meeting with all types of families to help them gain clarity and relief or support them in strengthening their communication.
Parenting is hard (I know!) and it’s normal for every parent to feel like they don’t know what to do. I help parents identify what is and isn’t working in their parenting style and support them in developing positive parenting strategies. I educate parents about the roots of behavior and how to take advantage of positive parenting techniques so that both parents and children “ recover from family stress. I want each parent to be part of the process, not just an outsider looking in, so that therapy will have a robust, lasting effect.
What does our child need? Everyone is saying something different.
I have helped many families by offering consultation and insight into preschool, pediatricians, or other experts recommendations. I will also helps parents sort through referrals and make informed choices, which will help their child succeed.
I am heartbroken and angry that my child is on the autism spectrum! Does that make me a bad parent?
Certainly not! Genetically derived behavior can be amongst the most challenging for everyone. I meet with many families as they process feelings that often surround a developmental or spectrum disorder diagnoses. I would love to meet with you and help you meet the special needs of your child.
