“Parenthood is sneaky. You think you’re just raising a child, teaching this little person how to live and be in this lovely, chaotic world, but in truth, you’re learning and growing right alongside them. If your heart remains open and your mind conscious, you’ll find that parenthood is the ultimate journey of self-discovery and that, through raising this precious being that has been entrusted in your care, you rise to your own fullest potential.”
― Rebecca Eanes
Parenting can be such an exciting, joyous, beautiful time. It also can be filled with highs and lows, unexpected challenges and difficulties. I am here to provide a trusting, safe, compassionate, and respectful environment for you to share and explore all of your experience. And I want to empower, resource, and support you and your family to live fulfilling, contented, and happy lives.
You deserve to be heard, your feelings honored, and your hopes respected. I work with adults, couples, families, parents and children to create and reinforce a strong, supportive, healthy, and well functioning family system. Some specific areas that I can support you and your family include parent coaching, postpartum support, early attachment with children, trauma, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, life transitions, interpersonal and intimate relationships, and grief.
My perspective on parenting includes a humanistic, holistic, and peaceful approach. I believe in the importance of creating limits and healthy boundaries with our children in a loving, respectful manner. Children are whole people who are to be respected and loved. They also need to be cared for with an understanding of realistic expectations based on their age and stage of development.
Furthermore, I believe in the importance of supporting each and every member of the family. We are interconnected and influenced by each person in our lives. Thus, I do not just look at one person as needing support but will instead take into account all the dynamics at play within the family and then determine where my services can be best implemented to create the most positive outcomes.
I am also committed to a holistic approach and will work closely with other professionals in the community to create a comprehensive, individualized, and integrated treatment plan for each client.
I offer the following services to support you and your family:
I look forward to getting to know you and working together to strengthen yourself, your relationships, and your family.
