GET TO KNOW
Rosalie Guthrie, LMFT
Simply put, if the kids are not o.k., then parents are probably not o.k. either; and if the parents are not o.k., their kids are feeling it too. So how do we get some control in that cycle?
I believe you’re all doing the best you can and want to grow. Maybe you would like to feel more confident as a parent. Maybe you desire a renewed feeling that you’re on the same page with your co-parent. Maybe you just need to figure out where to start. I can help you no matter where you find yourself on that journey.
Along with my therapy training, I also have several years of experience as a divorce/custody attorney. Back then, I would meet families when they had run out of options and were convinced that there was no way to avoid divorce or expensive custody litigation. I switched careers because I felt the court system rarely offered folks the level of compassion and patience that healing actually requires. I wanted to share the truth with my clients: positive change is always possible and you deserve support as you figure it all out.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) which means I am trained to treat individuals within the context of their relationships. I approach family therapy from an emotion-focused framework. The goal of therapy is to foster safe connection, healthy boundaries, and strong bonds between family members, and to build your own identity within that system. All families are welcome whether you are living together, married, separated, adopting, or considering combining households with your partner.
In my personal life, I enjoy baking sourdough bread for my family and friends, hiking, listening to therapy podcasts, and raising healthy happy houseplants. I have been lucky to serve children and their parents in some capacity throughout my life, and I love my work. It would be an honor to share it with you.
