THERAPY:Kids and adults learn to harness their awareness to become assertive and effective in managing their lives more consciously: kids learn to manage anxiety and depression, and stress. They experience a greater sense of personal mastery and competence. Helping kids identify choices for themselves increases their resilience and self-esteem. They're able to find positive solutions that empower them. They feel effective and in charge of meeting their own needs.
PARENT GUIDANCE: Helping parents establish, maintain, and restore healthy boundaries helps to mitigate chaos when they engage with their kids,and improves communication. Parents manage the growing space between them and their children. They learn to empower their kids-fostering the separation so they feel capable to grow into resilient independent capable adults.
DIVORCE CONSULTANT/COACH: For clients who are divorcing, I practice a collaborative divorce model that assures privacy; parents collaborate to implement agreements that attend to their kids, and address the concerns of each parent. Agreements attend to YOUR unique family reality; problem-solving shows them a more enlightened and healthy path.
