Counseling for Parents

Being a parent is a rewarding and a challenging job.  Often times, as we become parents we may put so much focus on caring for our children that we forget to attend to our own needs as well.   I offer individual and couples counseling for parents who are looking for extra support for themselves or their relationship.

I am passionate about supporting parents who want to improve their communication and be on the same page as their co-parent in their approach to parenting.

I also enjoy supporting parents who feel overwhelmed by their responsibilities as they figure out how to make time for self care.
