Therapy and Counseling for Families

Parent Training and Consultation

Whether you're raising toddlers or teenagers, parenting is hard work! We see parents both in conjunction with child/adolescent treatment, or independent of working with your children.  Sometimes kids are reluctant to come to therapy. Parent sessions can help you to build connections with your child so they are more open to change and the idea of counseling. We teach simple yet effective parenting techniques that are developmentally appropriate and tailored to your family's needs, including:

  • Limit-setting with oppositional and defiant kids
  • Navigating divorce, co-parenting, and step-families
  • Connecting with moody and sullen teens
  • Managing tantrums of early childhood
  • Alleviating sibling rivalry 
  • Increasing older teens' independence
