Mindful parenting: Coaching, Therapy, and Education for Parents.

Parenting can be very hard: our own baggage and triggers can get stimulated and surface. Together, we can explore tools to help you become a mindful, grounded and respectful parent. 

Do you feel stressed and overwhelmed? Did you have a traumatic or difficult childhood and finding it hard to ‘break old patterns’ with your children? Do you often yell at your children or partner and would like to stop? Do you suffer from Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (formally referred to as postpartum depression/anxiety)? Do you worry in excess or have intrusive thoughts, panic attacks, phobias or insomnia? Did you experience a traumatic birth or have a baby in the NICU? Are you a parent of a special needs child?

If you answered YES to one or more of the questions, than these services are for you! I offer 1:1 coaching and therapy for parents to help navigate the difficult realms of parenting and co-parenting. Together, we will learn valuable skills to help you cope with day to day stressors and become a more mindful, and happier parent and self. I draw from dialectic behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness strategies, and experience to help tailor services to meet individual needs.

  •   Stress management: coping with anxiety, stress, and panic attacks.
  •   Communication skills: learn to practice assertive, respectful communication with your children and partner.
