PARENTING  AND  PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIP  THERAPY

Parent/Child Therapy

Parenting is daunting because our children don’t come with a manual. You want your child to grow up feeling safe, being heard, and securely attached so that they have confidence and make good choices now and later on in life.

You can and should feel empowered as a parent.

 

  • Is it hard to know how to set limits?

  • Do you feel hurt and resentful when your children get angry with you?

  • Are you worried about doing a bad job if you didn’t have great models of parenting?

  • Maybe you overindulge or wonder if you are too strict, and feel that you don’t have a solid internal parenting compass.

  • Do you feel like you are repeating the same patterns that you parents made with you, even though you promised yourself you’d never do them?

  • Are you a new parent who is scared that you don’t have the tools you need to take care of your baby?

  • Are you and your spouse divorcing and are worried about keeping the lines of communication open between you and your child?

     

 

We can work together so you experience the joy of being connected to your child and feel confident about your parenting. There is tremendous value in understanding your own inner struggle. This has a profound effect on being a confident parent, vastly improving your child/teen’s self-esteem and your relationship.

 

I can help you parent your child with challenges that seem impossible to fix, even if your child/teenager:

  • Has just returned from a residential treatment center

  • Has learning differences 

  • Has sensory or language challenges

  • Is always on the go

  • Has difficulty with toilet training 

  • Has difficulty with play dates or making friends

  • Is a picky eater 

  • Is defiant, explosive, aggressive, or perfectionistic 

  • Struggles to regulate emotions

  • Is pulling away from you

  • Struggles with poor self-esteem, organization, homework, and socializing

  • Is depressed, anxious, and/or refusing to go to school

     

 

You might feel embarrassed – thinking you are a bad parent. That just isn’t the case. Raising children is complicated and believe it or not, most parents need help from time to time. We can put our heads together so you can feel effective.

Aftercare

If your teenager is returning from a hospitalization or residential treatment, it is scary and exciting. There is good reason to be hopeful. I will help make sure the transition is smooth and successful, either seeing you alone for parenting work or you and your teen for parent-teen counseling.

 

Parent-young adult relationship therapy

Are you feeling estranged from family members who can be difficult to handle? These are painful relationships to manage alone. Let’s put our heads together and decide whether it is best to let relationships go or how to remain in someone’s life in a way that feels right. I also specialize in family reunification.

 

You are so courageous for taking the next step. Let’s work together to help you feel effective in raising your children to be emotionally healthy so you can enjoy your children to the fullest.
