In life, we have growing pains, road blocks, and conflict - which can easily lead to miscommunication and disconnect. Until there is communication and resolution, it is very difficult to move forward and find peace.
During these times, we may need assistance from an objective voice to help us move through them.
Whether it is the new experience of a divorce, blending two families together, communication with your teenager, or launching your child from the home, or a long-term rift - counseling can help. It can ease the transition, open up lines of communication, and provide another view of the situation. Overall, it can provide a sense of resolution, both internally and with others.

As my children grow, so do I as a mother and a therapist. I am clear on one thing: it is never too early to start building a strong foundation of self-confidence within your child. I specialize in helping kids of all ages to learn a sense of self-care and self-trust, so they can increase their street smarts and emotional intelligence.
I find my work with children and teens to be an ongoing exploration. As they explore their thoughts, feelings, needs, wants, goals, likes, dislikes, challenges, strengths they build a foundation of skills that will support them throughout all parts of life.
