Healing and empowerment is available for everyone. I am here to support that journey. In my clinical practice I support clients in stabilizing any current distress so that they can ultimately thrive in their professional, academic, family, peer and romantic relationships. We work together to clarify goals, understand and limit barriers to success, and ultimately create the life clients want and deserve. The work builds upon strengths, while empowering clients to recognize, understand, and manage life's challenges. We all experience diverse life challenges … and we can all move beyond them. We can shape our life's narrative.
Child development, adolescent adjustment, and family well-being are focal areas. Related to this focus, I offer coparenting support to married and unmarried parents. I also support adult clients in the management of anxiety, depression and new life transitions. I use a cognitive-behavioral therapeutic approach that is solution-focused, and client centered. My ultimate goal is to empower clients recognize that they have more resources than they imagined – many of which are within themselves.
I am inspired by the following Nelson Mandela quote that reminds me to focus on the possibilities of life and the power we all have to make those possibilities our realities: "May your choices reflect your hopes - not your fears." My work is centered on helping individuals and families focus on the things that the wish to see grow in their worlds.
Co-parenting Support Services
Parenting is a complex responsibility. It often includes massive sacrifice and satisfying rewards. However, the task is made particularly difficult when a child is raised across two households, even with parents who love them dearly. Further, functional co-parenting may seem unachievable when those two parents are struggling to create a new normal with changed family dynamics and relationship challenges. These are some of the realities of co-parenting.
Co-parenting is not limited to those challenges and realities. There are co-parents who, each and every day, work past their differences and disappointments to create family that is different from the one they may have imagined, but uniquely beautiful nonetheless. The Fern Center for Life aims to support families on their journey to a beautiful, resilient and perhaps unimaginable new normal. There is no doubt that parents and children will be better off for it.
