FOR PARENTS

Help. Compassion. No judgment.

Parenting is hard. The challenges of parenting a child or teen with serious emotional or behavioral issues is beyond words. My passion is working with parents and families of children and teens navigating higher levels of care. I offer nonjudgmental support throughout the journey of hospitalizations, residential placements, and coming home.

I can help with:

  • The stress and challenges of hospitalizations and safety planning.

  • ​Parenting strategies based on your values and beliefs.

  • Transitioning home after residential placement (short and long term).

  • Strengthening family relationships and improving communication.

  • Advocating for your child's needs with treatment teams and healthcare professionals.

  • Restoring joy and enhancing resilience.

  • Loving, strong boundaries with adult children who have serious mental health conditions or addiction.
