Announcement icon I wanted to let you know that I am offering online parent and family sessions during the COVID-19 shut down. You are not alone.
You are a loving parent of a gifted or adopted child or have a more traditional family and you are tearing your hair out. The unique challenges of intense emotions and sensitive personalities stretch your parenting to the limits. You try to do everything right, but you feel you are getting a failing grade. Some days, you just want to pull the covers back over your head and hid from all the moodiness, fighting, complaints, and accusations. You want to run from teachers and you are tired of homework that either overwhelms or does not challenge your child. You argue nonstop with your partner and kids and you don't know where to turn.
As parents, you want to be the rock stars in your family. You want to be healers of all hurts. This includes understanding, nurturing, connecting and positive parenting through all the over-excitabilities, risky behaviors, social and school struggles, and meltdowns in the family. You want to be able to do it all. You want to be the change that motivates.
The worry is overwhelming you. You deserve to feel safe, loved and connected to your family. Everyone does! Your family is my client and peace is possible. Help is even easier with my option for InHome sessions. Yes, I can come to you! Visit my website to start the healing at home. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming. Let's connect. Together let's say, "Welcome Home."
