Parents and Families
It takes courage and wisdom to reach out for support and accept guidance from others. As a loving and skilled parent you may find yourself feeling lost, blamed, and disempowered when your child has behavioral or emotional difficulties. Some problems come out of nowhere, while others are the result of generations of difficult genetics or unhealthy patterns. Sometimes it is a single incident that your child has experienced.
I will invite parents and families into the counseling process and use techniques to increase effective relatioinships within the family as well as brainstorm solutions. Because all members of a family matter, I may even ask that siblings and extended family join in.
I view my role as a partner to parents in supporting their children and offering resources and tools to help their child grow and heal.
