Announcement icon I have openings for Telehealth/virtual coaching for children and their parents/guardians!
Parenting preschoolers and young children can be tough. The emotional drama, the power struggles, the bedtime or homework resistance, the clinginess. Those moments when you wonder if your child is the only one who does X (Hint: She’s not!). You love your child, you love being a parent, but parenting, sometimes, not so much. It’s draining. It stirs self-doubt. It tests one’s patience. It requires humility and selflessness. In the darkest moments, you wonder if you're up for it; if your mistakes are damaging your child. In short, it really is the toughest job most people will ever do.
Here’s the good news: When you learn how to respond in these moments, everything gets better, easier, more pleasant. Not only does your relationship with your child improve, but so does your relationship with your partner, and most importantly with yourself. Your confidence will improve and so will your happiness.
I am a Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional (CATP) trained in play therapy and parent coaching. I work exclusively with children 2+ and their parents within the home; as well as in an office specifically designed for children 6-12 years-old, and virtually through an online platform. Call me (240) 252-3349 x815, let’s discuss your little one!
