We recognize that there are many transitions in the family life cycle that create challenges (having children, adolescent and teen years, aging parents, illnesses, loss, divorce, financial struggles). Together, we look at the ways families can get stuck and experience distress during these times or transition.
We see the family as a whole. Counseling helps to create a healthy hierarchy where the parents are united in their parenting approach and provide consistent rules and expectations for children to follow.
We help parents set boundaries around giving, and teaching responsibility. We also work with parents to help them listen to the needs and wants of their children without judgment, criticism, and stonewalling. We aim to restore children’s faith and trust in their parents’ ability to be responsive.
Our therapists desire to create connection, trust, and safety in the family system to empower parents to successfully navigate the challenge of life’s transitions.
