Parenting is really hard and sometimes we feel at loss about how we can best help our kids.

It's easy to believe that we're forever defined by our past experiences, but the truth is far more hopeful.

When children are struggling, it can show in lots of different ways. As adults, we often label them as "misbehaving", "disobedient", "throwing tantrums" and similar. The reality, however, is that they're trying  to manage their feelings and to connect with the adults around them.

Here are some signs that you or your child may be struggling and need professional help:

  • Changes in sleeping or eating habits
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Shift in mood (suddenly very angry or withdrawn)
  • They're worried and anxious
  • ‍They are more clingy or have bad separation anxiety

Adolescents

One of the hardest parts of being a teenager is living in a world full of people who don’t get you. This can make folks feel rejected, alone, and unworthy, which then creates many more mental health concerns. I provide support for anxiety, trauma, and depression, while also tending to the impact of social systems on your mental wellbeing.

Adults

Don't let anxiety and depression dim your light. Anxiety and depression are not personality traits, but symptoms of a deeper issue that needs healing. Therapy is a great way to figure out exactly what that is and to resolve it. Through personalized strategies, you'll learn to navigate tough emotions and rediscover inner peace.
