"If we value our children, we must cherish their parents" -JOHN BOWLBY
Restore Peace & Balance to your Family If you are visiting this page, you may be having a difficult time parenting your child, adolescent or teen. It is my goal to be of help as we work together on how to best support your child, while also allowing for some space in the therapeutic process for you to better care for yourself during the challenging moments. As you move forward in your parenting journey, I hope to be of value to you and your relationship with your child so you can thrive even when it's hard. I specialize in challenging behaviors, special needs parenting and parent/child issues.
Let's face it. Being a parent is the hardest yet the best, most amazingly rewarding job we will ever have in our lifetime. Add being a special needs parent or a parent with a child who is impulsive, moody, angry or struggling in daily life can be even more difficult and taxing on you and your family. I know from both my professional and personal experiences as a special needs mom that getting through some really tough moments is possible in what seems like the hardest challenges we can face. Although it may seem like an impossible, uphill battle at times, you can move forward, your child can be successful, you can restore peace and balance to your family, and I am here to help. I believe all children can be successful and reach their true potential. I am glad you are here and taking a step to find guidance. I provide a safe, collaborative, and supportive place where we can focus on how to move forward together.
