Discovering how you each belong
We all came from somewhere. We are all part of a system. Family therapy is a time and space to see what it might be like to explore the roles you have within your family. To explore the roles of each of the family members. Sometimes this is about your family of origin and other times it’s about the families you have created, no matter they are all related.

Parenting is not about being perfect, and it’s not about sheltering our children from pain or emotions. It’s about being real and allowing ourselves to show up and be seen even with our children so that they can feel safe in allowing themselves to be seen too.

Allowing our children to see us also cultivates and supports their own intuition while creating healthy relationships with our children and modeling behavior that will allow our children to embrace the life that owe all dream for them. I look forward to working with you as you explore your own roles as parents and to hold space for the parenting wounds that you may be holding in that process.
