Child & Family Counseling
Pain Points as a Parent
You’ve watched your child battle with sadness, worry and even the occasional “behavior problem.”
You worry that your child is depressed or experiencing anxiety, but you’re unsure, which has led to you feeling incompetent as a parent.
Your child may have recently experienced a new, overwhelming medical diagnosis that has become disabling.
You’ve even battled internally with your own struggles and the struggles of the family as a whole.
At times the home feels like a conflict-ridden zone.
You’ve tried all that you know to do, and need guidance on what to do next.
Because at the end of the day, you hurt when your child hurts.
Your Dream Scenario as a Parent:
You know your family can thrive.
What you want most is for your child to feel positive about who they are and to help them grow into the person you know they are meant to be.
You want your child to feel empowered and for you to feel competent as a parent when it comes to navigating your child’s pain.
You need the support to make it work.
Learning effective parenting skills can help your family get there.
What you will gain as parents:
Parent coaching can help your family learn about what effective way of communicating, building positive relationships within the family and others, to learn effective ways of setting healthy boundaries.
You will learn what depression and anxiety look like in children and to implement the skills your child learns in therapy inside the home.
You will feel competent again and know the next steps in how to help your child.
What your kiddos are going to gain:
We will complete an assessment to gauge your child’s symptoms and concerns weekly so you have a better understanding of what we are focused on each session.
There is no one size, fits all approach with working with your child.
Each child is unique and goals will be created to address their own personal struggles.
We use a combination of art, play and processing their experiences, which gives your child an interactive, engaging experience.
Their individual time gives them the freedom to share their own worries, thoughts, and emotions in a safe space where their voice matters.
You child will learn healthy ways of communicating, find relief from traumatic experiences and will overall feel more confident about who they are as a person.
