Being a parent can be the most rewarding part of life and at times also the most difficult. Raising children, launching children and building strong parental/child bonds takes love, commitment and work.
Common issues include:
Many parents find that there are times when the challenges of parenthood become particularly difficult, and it is at these times that therapy can provide support and guidance so that both the children and parents can meet their individual goals, understand one another and develop strong relationships.
Assisting families through challenging times is one of the important goals of my practice. I work with heterosexual, lesbian, gay and transgender couples and families.
