Parent support 

Do you ever feel like your teen wont listen to you? Is there fighting or tension in your home? Do you wish you could get your point across more effectively to your family members? Is there a change or loss that is affecting your whole family?

  •  Sometimes families need a little extra support to keep their connections strong. I offer parent support sessions to help families learn healthy and effective communication strategies and ways to better manage conflict.

I offer individual parent support sessions to support your needs. At this time I am not offering couples or family therapy sessions for more that one member of a family at a time. I will work with a parent individually around managing their relationship with their children or with a child individually (involving the parent as needed for intake and updates around progress in treatment) but not offering conjoint parent and child or whole family sessions.

Things that parent support sessions can help with:

-Constant arguing

-Family separations or divorce 

-Not being able to get through to each other

-Feeling like your teen isn't following your rules/expectations

-Helping express your love and concern to your teen in a way they can take in

I specialize in helping parents interact with their teens/pre-teens in more effective ways. The goal isn't around eliminating conflict, but rather having more effective conflicts where both people walk away feeling heard, understood and loved.

We will process what isn't working in your relationships and help you find ways to get your needs met. You and your family deserve to be happy and get along.
