Parenting is the world's hardest job without training -- and it's extra-hard if you have a "difficult" child or are trying to break a generational parenting cycle.
If you have a "challenging" child (e.g., defiant, strong-willed, sensitive, ADHD, explosive) you need support. I train parents to raise their child(ren) without yelling, shame, blame, bribes or threats – even if they are stuck in these cycles right now. Having a difficult child makes parenting harder than usual, but you can learn how to get your whole family to thrive, not just survive. I know you want positive, loving bonds with your kids for life - let's get started! To book a free consult visit: www.lainelipsky.com/call

The author of thirty books for young readers and adults, I write and speak about couples and family relationships, parenting , PTSD, sexual and other trauma, and other subjects for a range of print, online and broadcast media.
I approach therapy as an active, collaborative process. I aim to provide a safe, compassionate and intelligent place to freely explore thoughts, feelings and experiences, take risks to work through past issues and current concerns, and identify and utilize core strengths to grow--and create more fulfilling lives and relationships. Years of clinical research and treatment with post-deployed combat veterans informs my practice: I believe that regardless of circumstances, we possess inherent strengths that, when harnessed, can move us toward wholeness, healing and extraordinary growth as individuals and in connection with others.

While we cannot control the world around us, we all have the power to change how we process and respond to experiences. Therapy helps us to feel understood and to accept everything that is wonderful about us, including our "flaws."

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.
