Are you struggling to find joy and meaning in your role as a mother? Do you feel like your only value is in what you provide for your family? Are you finding it difficult to get up and face the day without the weight of cultural, societal, family, and even your own expectations dragging you down? Do you smile and fight back tears whenever someone looks you in the eye and genuinely asks, “How have you been?”
You’re not the only one! Being a mother in today’s world of Pinterest and Instagram can be incredibly stressful, especially since many of us do not live in the same physical communities as our support systems (especially in a city like Houston). We can’t help but compare ourselves to others’ picture-perfect highlight reels while we are mired in the day-to-day of messy, smelly, sometimes chaotic real life as a mother. Reality is seldom like we imagined when we were kids, is it? It doesn’t have to be like this. Let me show you a different way.
In addition to mothers in all walks of life, I particularly enjoy working with clients for whom race, culture, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, and other differences lead to questions of identity and belonging. More generally, I have helped many clients break past the anxiety and depression that have held them back from engaging fully with their lives. I have worked in a broad range of settings in Louisiana and Texas (psychiatric hospitals, intensive outpatient programs, vocational rehabilitation agencies, private practices, and mental health rehabilitation agencies), which means I have addressed a wide variety of challenges with people from many cultures and in almost every stage of life. I truly consider it an honor to be invited to share in someone’s journey and to walk alongside them as they discover their potential and grow to become their best selves.
