As parents, we care deeply, work hard, and can be really hard on ourselves and sometimes on our kids. The core of my work is to meet you, and your child, exactly where you are, and to help you get where you need to go. There is nothing wrong with you or your child. And, at the same time, there are practical ways to make life as a family a lot easier.
If you're confused, overwhelmed, angry, or exhausted, I am here to help! Together we can uncover the foundations of family struggles without blame, shame, or judgment (toward you or your kids!); then build some new, helpful approaches and practices that support a healthy, constructive family life.
Expect a meeting to:
