Parent Support and Consulting

Parent Support and Consulting is perfect for parents-to-be, new parents, parents struggling with their child's behavioral problems and parents who are just trying to figure their teens out. The goal of Parent Support and Consulting is to help parents identify a common ground to provide support to each other, set healthy boundaries, identify age appropriate discipline and rewards, and provide tips for improving communication and building positive relationships with their children.

 

It is very important to understand that every child is unique with their own personality and that will come along with their own set of challenges. Just because one way of parenting may work with one child, does not mean it will work for all children. Your therapist may assess your child or teen to rule out any mental health causes and coordinate care with your pediatrician to rule out any possible medical causes of behavioral problems. This is essential as it is not uncommon for children, teens (and adults) to go undiagnosed for learning disorders, ADHD, Autism, and sensory processing disorders. These are easily manageable when early intervention is provided. Behavioral problems are significantly reduced and a deeper understanding of your child is developed.
