This is why I have decided to branch out and provide an additional service, along with my traditional psychotherapy services, of parent and family coaching. I have loved my many years of doing therapy, a process that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of symptoms of mental illness, as well as the understanding of the factors (environmental and familial and internal and otherwise) that helped get a person to the place where they are. Then, in therapy, we slowly, often painstakingly, try to unwind those factors, create new perspectives and realities, and develop coping skills that help the individual or family become stronger and healthier. It is important work that has helped so many people survive and thrive.
No one has all the answers, but as a trained psychologist, I have the skills to help you formulate the questions you need to ask and figure out what options are available for every parenting and family dilemma. Yes, I am trained to know what the experts have to say about everything from sleep training to teen vaping; however, through my therapy practice, I have also shared in the experiences of hundreds of families who have showed me what actually works in real life to ease family challenges. It's all so hard, yes, but there are ways to make it easier.
You have heard my story now. I invite you to schedule an appointment so I can hear yours, as well as your questions and concerns about your children and family life. Together, we can try to smooth the way forward.
