I help overwhelmed moms find themselves again amidst the chaos of motherhood. Being a mom is one of the toughest jobs out there, and it's completely normal to feel overwhelmed at times. As a therapist and mom of 3 school aged kids, I understand the unique challenges that come with being a mom. I understand the mental load and the stress that it can put on your mental health. I'm here to help you find ways to manage your stress, rediscover yourself as a person, and feel more confident in your role as a mom. Together, we can work towards creating a happier, healthier life for you and your family.
Moms with ADHD
Diagnosed with ADHD in my 20s, I effectively managed my ADHD for many years...until I had children. If you're a mom with ADHD like me, you may feel like you're constantly struggling to keep up with the demands of daily life. You may find it difficult to stay organized, manage your time, or stay focused on tasks, which can make parenting even more challenging. My approach isn't just to teach strategies to manage ADHD symptoms. Instead, I have found that the use of mindfulness and a deeper awareness of self can have a more profound impact on ADHD. You deserve to feel empowered and confident in your role as a parent, and I'm here to help you achieve that.
As a single mom myself, I intimately understand just how challenging this role is and the toll it can take on mental health. The juggling of a million things at once and prioritizing kids makes it easy to neglect ourselves. It can also be very lonely, as it's often hard to muster the energy to connect with ourselves and others in a way that fills our cups. I offer a safe and supportive space to work through things that matter, from navigating co-parenting, to building a support system. I am particularly passionate about helping single moms to feel empowered and confident while rediscovering their identity and purpose.
Children of Divorce
Divorce can be a difficult time for the whole family. Children often feel stuck in the middle of two parents they love dearly. It can be very lonely, as they aren't sure who they can trust with their experiences and emotions. As a therapist, I'm here to help children of divorce navigate these emotions and develop strategies for coping with the changes in their family dynamic. Through play therapy and other age-appropriate techniques, I provide a safe and supportive environment where children can express their feelings and work through any challenges they may be facing. I also work with parents to provide them with the tools and support they need to help their children adjust to their new family situation. Together, we can help children of divorce feel more confident, resilient, and secure as they navigate this challenging time.
I specialize in working with women going through divorce to reconnect with and reinvent themselves in a meaningful way. I'm convinced that going through divorce as a mom is the most stressful life event I've ever endured. It was also the catalyst for me to go back to school at the age of 39 to become a therapist. I saw how much therapy helped me through this time, and I wanted to help other women like me. I understand the complex emotions that come with divorce, and how given the opportunity to express and deal with those emotions, a woman can come out stronger on the other side.
Women with Relationship Issues
Relationships are a central part of our lives, and when they're not going well, it can impact our mental and emotional well-being. As a therapist, I specialize in helping women navigate relationship issues and find the support and guidance they need to create healthy, fulfilling relationships. By providing a safe and non-judgmental space, I work with women to explore their emotions and understand how past experiences may be impacting their current relationships. I help women identify their needs and wants in relationships, communicate effectively with their partner, and develop skills for building trust, intimacy, and connection. Whether you're struggling with issues of infidelity, communication, or simply feeling disconnected from your partner, I'm here to support you and help you create the loving, fulfilling relationship you deserve.
