It’s easy for parents to be overwhelmed with the non-stop demands of parenting. When a child displays behaviors such as defiance, temper tantrums, aggression, impulsivity, etc, it can feel unbelievably stressful. My approach is to partner with parents to guide them in, first, developing the skills to enhance their bond with their child. During therapeutic coaching sessions, the parent has the opportunity to develop mastery of skills in a calm, non-threatening format while the child plays with toys, with my guidance and support. This approach is well researched and successful.

If you’re a worried parent who wants someone who understands your child, I’d love to come alongside both of you to help improve your child’s life.
Are stress and anxiety taking control and holding your child back from being their old selves and reaching their goals? Is it affecting important areas of life including school, friendships, and even fun? Are you searching for a therapist who understands and can provide support in growing and navigating challenges? You may not remember a time when things weren't so tough. You're in the right place if your child's ready to learn strategies to cope and restructure your thinking patterns so they feel more confident, empowered, and balanced. Most of all, you'd like them to enjoy their youth and feel comfortable in their skin.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
