Psychotherapy for Individuals, Couples, and Children

COUPLES THERAPY

“It takes two to tango” as the song goes. While this is true for tango, it’s not completely true for relationships. There are actually many things an individual can learn to do to improve the quality of a relationship, even if their partner would rather stay home and watch TV than join them in therapy! And of course with both partners in the therapy room, marital bliss has more than a fighting chance. Working to help people achieve better relationships is something I am passionate about, because relationship bliss shouldn’t be missed!

When people are asked "What's the most important thing in the world to you?" the most common reply by far is "my family."

Infants and Toddlers

Children under 12

Play & Art Therapy

Childhood Depression, Anxiety, and Anger

Parent Effectiveness Training

Mother ~ Baby Wellness

~ The very first relationship in life begins even before we’re born! A baby’s relationship to its mother. For the baby, the quality of this relationship tends to have a profound and lasting impact. Mothers want happy, healthy babies and a positive parenting experience. I help mothers and infants experience a joyous bond, free of excess stress. In addition to my training as a family therapist, I formerly worked as a maternal-baby nurse and also as an infant-toddler daycare owner. You and your baby will be in good hands! Here are just a few of the specific challenges that Mother~ Baby Wellness Counseling can assist with: 

Preparing for Baby's Arrival

Well-being in Pregnancy and Childbirth

Coping with a Hospitalized Infant

Achieving a Positive Mother-Baby Bond

Treatment for Postpartum Depression

Parenting Infants and Toddlers

Temper Tantrums

Adoption Adjustment

Daycare Issues

Breastfeeding Support

HOLISTIC INDIVIDUAL THERAPY 

What troubles the mind eventually troubles the body, and what troubles the body eventually troubles the mind. “Holism” is about that Mind-Body connection, and more! It’s about paying attention to how gender, culture, ethnicity, age, and health habits influence the problem at hand. It’s about how your relationships and life philosophy may be interacting with the problem, too. It’s about learning to see yourself and your life and life's challenges as a whole.
