Online Therapy for Parents and Families with Special Needs Children or Adults

For Florida Residents

Having a child with special needs is truly a unique journey and can pose challenges that are exceptionally stressful and difficult.


I personally understand this journey as I have a special needs daughter and know the direct impact it can have on all individuals and the whole family system.


I can help in areas such as:

  • Self-care

  • Enhancing parent-child relationships

  • Marital stress

  • Navigating school and IEP's

  • Community resources

  • Coping with caregiving of an adult family member with disabilities

  •  Exploring the best options for your child and family.

Give yourself some grace . . . it is OK that you waited until now to address all you've been through and all before you.

The good news is that you now feel ready to take better care of yourself and your important relationships. 

If you've been putting one foot in front of the other...

I know what it's like to get to a point in your life where you may ask yourself:  "How did I get here? How did we end up like this?" 

We have years of unknowns, doctors' appointments, specialist meetings, insurance research, lost expectations, intense ebbs and flows, fears, and the list can go on and on. 

Parents like us have been in crisis mode for many years without realizing it. We just did what was needed to care for our special needs child in all ways possible: emotionally, physically, and mentally.


We did all this while still trying to tend to other relationships, such as spouses, partners, and other children, and possibly having professional obligations. We just kept going and doing....going and doing..and THEN...

The time comes when we "hit our walls" (so to speak), come to a screeching halt, and wonder, "What happened?" You may notice you have suffered physically, mentally, and emotionally. You may experience a marriage or relationship that has become distant, cold, and empty. 

It’s OKAY to take better care of yourself and tend to your most important relationships. 


This is not to replace any ongoing caregiving for your special needs family member, but rather you may realize that you cannot proceed as is and must change something to continue on this journey in the most healthy way. 

I get this...I've been there...I'm still on this unique journey. I feel blessed to be able to use my personal background and professional expertise as a marriage and family therapist to help you get to the other side of this. The time has come's time to heal and implement the changes needed before moving on to the next stage of your life. 

Let's have a conversation to see how my services can best help you. 

I was a podcast guest on ABCs of Disability Planning discussing  "Marital therapy for parents of special needs children"
