Single parents often feel as if the weight of the world is on their shoulders. You are on call 24/7. Whether it’s rushing a sick child to the doctor in the middle of the night, working overtime to make ends meet, helping them with their last-minute science project or showing up to watch their school play, it all comes down to you…. and you alone. That can leave you feeling exhausted, lonely, overwhelmed, worried, even resentful.
Working with a skilled therapist who provides unconditional acceptance, stress reduction, and parenting support can be a game changer. You don’t have to do this alone anymore. We are here to hold space just for you, so that you can think clearly and create the life you want and deserve.
