Lowering the Stress at Home

We Help Children of All Ages

Not only do we have experience in working with school-aged children and teenagers, we also have specific expertise helping very young children, including infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

Working Together for Lasting Results

Because difficulties with one child affect the whole family, the combination of working with parents and children provides the longest lasting results. read more >>read less <<

Therefore, when a child is in therapy, we help reduce stress at home by providing:

  • Support and ideas for parents to make changes at home
  • Sessions directly with the child, directly with parents, and together
  • Practical tools to help parents support the positive changes we’ve worked on in therapy
We’re Here to Help, Not to Judge

 Parents are often worried that they are doing something wrong. We are not interested in judging whether a parent is “right or wrong.” We want to know if an idea or skill works or doesn’t work. If it works—great! If not, we’ll try something else.

We Appreciate Parents’ Fears

Sometimes parents feel guilty about their negative thoughts or fears about their child. When these fears crop up, we’re not worried. read more >>read less <<

It can be difficult for parents to say these fears out loud. But we know about them and are not worried. Some of these fears include:

  • It’s all my fault
  • I’ve tried everything and nothing works
  • You’ll think I’m a terrible parent
  • I should have gotten help sooner
  • I’m not sure therapy will help
  • Sometimes I don’t like my child

When these fears crop up, it is important to remember that:

  • The source of wellness is inside of you and your child
  • We help uncover inherent strengths
  • We have hope and experience
  • Together we will find the solutions that match your family
