Families are complicated! Each person brings their own personality and perspective, and things can get off-balance and tense pretty fast.
My role with each family changes depending on what brings them to seek support. However, what guides each session is a an emphasis on connection, individual respect, and shared family experiences.
I also work with parents to support and empower them, as well as equip them with the tools they need to feel confident and successful doing the world's hardest job.
how can I help?
I work with families to process and adjust following a big change like a move or a divorce.
Grief and loss affect individuals as well as families, and working with a therapist can help give each grieving voice a chance to be heard.
Behavior difficulties can make everyone grumpy and frustrated. I help families troubleshoot and get on the same team.
Trauma affects the whole family, and recovery can come from whole-family healing. Support after a traumatic event, whether directly affecting one person or the whole family, can help everyone process and move toward safety.
Parents get asked a lot of questions, and sometimes there are no easy answers. Get consultation on how to have difficult conversations about illness, death, divorce, social equity, abuse, or conflict.
