Child Therapy, Parenting & Family Counseling

Help for Parents & Their Kids!

Are your kids driving you crazy? and do you feel bad about thinking this way about your own child(ren), especially when they once were so perfect? Do you sometimes feel like you’re not even sure you like the once sweet child who now seems like a monster?

Do you feel like you’ve turned into the parent you vowed you wouldn’t be? Yelling, nagging, guilting, discouraged and always angry? Are you sounding more like your parents than you’d like, and wondering how that happened? Do you say hurtful things when you’re feeling frustrated that you later regret?

Do you sometimes feel like your failing at being a good parent, otherwise you would have a “good kid”? And wonder what you did wrong? Feeling like you don’t know the right thing to do to change your child’s behavior, your relationship and how they treat you?

Do you feel confused about what your child(ren) need to be happy and successful, and does it seem like your kids are great at making you feel like you’re a failure as a parent and can’t seem to get anything right? Unsure how to help your children through family separation and divorce?

And do you feel at your wits end and at a total loss on how to fix things? Does it feel hopeless? Do you feel completely overwhelmed? Feeling like being a parents shouldn’t be this hard, and confused about why nothing you’re doing is working? Are you wondering how you and your ex can get along so you can be co-parents now that you are not together?

Start Feeling Better About Your Child & Your Parenting

parenting advice

Being a parent isn’t easy, is it, especially these days? And the
messages to parents about how to parent effectively can be
confusing, conflicting and sometimes just not helpful.

Call me if you’d like to discuss how I might help you feel like the good parent you want to be. I want to help you feel less overwhelmed and feel more confident and empowered. With support and concrete strategies I’ve learned over my 25 years being a child and family therapist, we will address behavior and relationship problems, and see if we can bring greater peace to your family life.

There are unique challenges to co-parenting with an ex. I also specialize in helping couples that are no longer together, co-parent more effectively.
