I help overwhelmed, "recovering-perfectionist" parents feel safely understood and empowered with tools to be calm, connected, and recharged.
Maybe you're trying to give what you didn’t get. Maybe you feel stuck or unreliable in your parenting — why is it so hard to do some days, or with certain ages? You wonder, did I miss the window for having an impact on my kids, or on the world? Will my kids or other loved ones only remember our bad times? Will I get to feel like a self again? You yearn for another voice, another presence that is unbiased & trustworthy, to help you process & give room to all the swirling hurt & uncertainty. You want a consistent, steady feeling, and self trust.
I particularly love to help parents/caregivers (especially introverts!) struggling with stress, high sensitivity, and/or intensity, so that instead of feeling exhausted & hopeless, they have the tools to be calm, connected & recharged. In my practice, these tools can include concepts from the Nurtured Heart Approach® (NHA); Internal Family Systems, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy, as well as body-based co-regulation skills and creative exercises.
I believe there's no success too small to celebrate. I believe you have all you need within yourself– you just might need help accessing/activating it. I believe we're wired for connection. It's okay to need & ask for support. None of what happened to you is your fault; let's connect you to every available source of power (within/around you) so you're equipped for your next right thing.
