Counseling for Parents
Parenting is one of the most challenging and rewarding roles you will ever experience. This role takes a great deal of energy, patience, wisdom, knowledge and an endless supply of love. Unlike the roles we play in other part of our lives, such as our role at work, their is very little training, outside of the training we received by watching our parents and other caregivers stumble through their own parenting experience. If you were lucky and one of the few, you had a set of parents that taught you healthy boundaries, healthy communication skills, effective ways to manage conflict, gave you the appropriate opportunities to learn resiliency, provided age appropriate structure to experience safety, validated your feelings, offered a healthy amount of praise, and taught you the art of family life balance. The majority of us did not have even half of that experience. Many of us feel lost, frustrated, hurt, angry and and sad with the way our parenting experience is going. It doesn’t have to be this way. We can help you! We can provide the support needed to help you develop the parenting skills necessary to parent your child and also experience joy.
