Being a kid, teen, or young adult these days is pretty complicated, and parenting can certainly feel overwhelming at times! Sometimes, challenges show up that get in the way of the child or teen years being the carefree time of life that we want it to be. Sometimes, parents need a little support to help navigate unexpected issues that may arise in their families. Counseling can help during these times by providing a safe, trusted space to seek solutions, growth, and healing.

Having been a coach of youth sports for decades, a well respected and nationally recognized talent evaluator, and more importantly a parent of student-athletes, I understand the stress and difficulty of being a student-athlete and the strain it can put on a family.
Whether it's basketball, football, or any other sport, being a student-athlete and having to balance homework, practice, and a social life can be extremely stressful for the player as well as his or her family. Some athletes may not know what choices they have, or what direction they want to go in. I specialize in helping families cope and thrive in the sports world's hectic environment. Through trained techniques I will help you find the most effective way to gain maximum results in sports, the classroom, at home, and in life.

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.
