Click here to see how I can help with family counseling.
“Family is not an important thing, it’s everything.”
Are you exhausted by the constant struggle to get your child to follow rules?
Do you you want to end the daily chore and homework battle?
Do you feel that the only type of dialogue you have with your child is yelling?
Are you worried that you are doing the right thing for your family?
Has your family recently gone through a major change and you are finding it difficult to adjust?
Parenting is a difficult task
one that oftentimes compels parents to seek help in the following areas:
- Difficulties in adapting after having a newborn or infant
- Getting a child or teen to follow rules at home and school
- Communicating with a child or teen without fighting
- Getting homework and chores done
- Worrying that your child or teen is not learning the values they need to succeed in life
- Having family activities that are pleasant
- Worrying that, as a parent, one is doing the right thing
Family counseling provides an opportunity to find solutions in these areas. As a mother and family counselor, I have over 7 years of experience working with parents and their children transform and enhance their relationship. I am a Relationships Expert who is passionately committed to helping families strengthen their connection to each other. I have completed graduate education in Family Systems, as well as Leader training in Active Parenting for Children and Teens, an evidenced based program.
I have worked with many different types of families. Nowadays, the make up of families have transformed from what is considered to be a traditional family-two married parents with their child(ren), to co-parents, singles parents, step-parents, and relatives working toward the common goal of maintaining family unity.

WHAT IF YOU COULD TRANSFORM YOUR FAMILY RELATIONSHIP TODAY?
Here is how I can help:
Improving communication skills within the family is an important element which will bring parents and children closer. I work to break down the communication barriers between parents and siblings alike. Together we can design a solution focused on the strengths of your family while addressing opportunity areas.
It's not easy to discipline a child. Just getting a child or teen
to complete chores and homework can leave parents feeling exhausted and frustrated; "Am i too hard on my child? Am i doing the right thing? Why does my child disobey me?" As a parenting specialist, I can give you the tools you need to properly discipline your child or teen in a healthy way.
You've heard it before, quality over quantity. The same holds true for family time, too. Spending quality time with each other is essential to creating a lasting bond between parents and children. I can help you and your family create those lasting experiences.
Feeling closer and more connected to each other is something that all families want. Many factors can keep families from connecting; communication issues, disobedience, addiction, recent changes, work/life balance, technology and more. I can help your family reconnect and feel closer to one another.
Peace of mind
Every parent wants to feel like they are doing the right thing. There are so many struggles that one can go through trying to raise a child with the right morals and behaviors so they may be successful when they grow up. I can help you achieve the confidence you need to feel you are doing the best for your children and family.
