In these times and over the course of time, we have lost some of our vital human values. In particular the societal importance placed upon the family as well as the protection and guidance of children have gone awry. In our society, children are subjected to more than overly adult, boundary-less, life-threatening, and intolerable circumstances.

I hope this note finds you well. I am reaching out to you before the holidays begin. We live in a chaotic and complex world that is reflected in inner and outer turmoil. I am here to provide safety from the stress of life as a viable solution. You deserve to be heard, express yourself, and learn empowering tools in a safe, supportive place as you release stress and overwhelm. If you want to, you can improve your mental, emotional and physical reactions thus building a better life and better relationships today. I will help you build intentional self-compassion and “stand up tall inside yourself” as you continue your sacred life’s journey.
Life in general today mixed with the prospect of family time can bring up strife and unresolved dynamics. The media inundates us with reminders of the upcoming occasions, illustrated with joyous happy people. In reality, many emotions and expectations come up for many people during holiday times because they do not experience the picture perfect celebrations portrayed on TV. Life today for many people is not like an idyllic Norman Rockwell painting. “It is what it is” until you create a better way from this season on.
Please let me know if I can support you during this often richly complex and emotional season. During transition and holiday time, people can feel particularly tense as finances, obligations, and interpersonal family issues can spike. Learn how to improve your self-care and mindfulness and let’s create an action plan to help you cope. This is an excellent and opportune time to explore a path of healing and forgiveness- for your relationship with others and yourself.
Feel free to schedule sessions with me to offer you understanding, resolution and fulfillment this holiday season.
Children don’t come with instruction manuals, nor do parents automatically know what to do in every moment or every situation that arises. In many cases, trial and error can become second nature. When we think of parenting and how to do it well, right, or effectively many things come to mind. It is true that we aren’t taught in a classroom setting or with any one parenting manual “how to” parent well. We parents often learn while in the throes of the parenting experience. We hope to do the best for our children, disposing the rest, less effective, detracting parenting practices. Children need the best start in life that they can have. When they feel safe with their parent in all of the ways possible, their esteem and life open up to wondrous possibilities.
