Dr. Wise has gathered invaluable insights over years of partnering with couples and families. Relationships are not static. To flourish, partners consistently reflect on themselves, family, and partnership. Therapy provides an opportunity to increase insight, understanding, and connection. All services operate from the premise that there is no right way to navigate parenting, relationships, and family. Instead, our work with families aims to support clients' ability to make decisions that honor their values and beliefs. As a result, clients become more connected in their intimate relationship and more closely aligned as parents.

I offer in person play therapy and parent consultations, as well as tele-therapy sessions.
Childhood can bring big challenges. Children deal with difficult transitions, feelings of loss and sometimes even traumatic events. Kids need a place where they can process their sadness, frustration and loss in a way that is tailored to the way children think, feel and understand their world. When children are able to process their feelings through play therapy, and their parents are able to support this process at home, the child learns to feel safe again and begins to thrive in his/her own world again. I am new to East Dallas Psychotherapy, I'm excited to join this team that already serves adults & teens by focusing on kids!

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.
