Is your child struggling at home, at school, or with their peers? Are you witnessing them break down and you don’t know what to do? A short-term investment in these important relationships can create an invaluable return!
Many times we are rushing out the door to get to the next scheduled event. It can cause tension, frustration, and conflict between family members. Heavy workloads, overwhelming amounts of to-do’s causes the family to build resentment, anger, and negative patterns of interaction. By having the family learn simple routines and practices in counseling, you and your child can use the tools at home to bounce back more quickly from those stressful situations. Recovering from the toxic moments more easily allows the bond to continue growing between you and your loved ones. Through exercises that connect the family and experiencing loving moments in counseling bridges the gap that the struggles can create.
Through the teachings of emotional regulation, stress reduction, and conflict resolution, therapy will help set your child up for a successful youth and adulthood. In addition, through coaching, parents learn how to move towards more effective interactions and setting consistent boundaries that encourage your child’s growth and development.
