The parent-child relationship is one of the most significant relationships we will have; it can be life-giving in more ways than one. It can also be stressful at times, and often needs support and encouragement. Would you like to enhance and strengthen your relationship with your child? Would you like to support your child's ability to manage his/her emotions? Do you need help understanding and communicating with your child? Is your child worried, anxious or troubled and needing extra support? If you answered yes to one or all of these, then you have landed in the right place.
I believe that childhood should be a time for healthy growth and development. For many children and teens, it is a time of great emotional stress. Children and teens react to stress in many ways including withdrawal and acting out behaviors at home and school.
Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, as parents and other nurturing caretakers we get stuck in how to help our children, blame ourselves, or stumble on the ‘right’ thing to say and need a little bit of assistance to help our children become happy, loving and successful adults.
Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether your child or teen struggles with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or any other issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow.
You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a courageous first step towards getting to a better place for you, and your family.
My practice specializes in treating children, teens and families, and through years of experience, I’m confident that no problem is too great to overcome. Through therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face and learn coping strategies to help you both right now and in the future.
