You may be a good fit for counseling if:
- Your family needs a space to talk about meaningful topics
- Screen over-use, rebelling on getting off xBox, PC, PS5, Netflix, TikTok, Instagram, Snap, Twitch
- Parent education around emotional management for helping your child (in other words, learning to model what you want to see in your kid)
- Disrespect and unkindness to family members, avoiding, ignoring, passive aggressive behavior
- Frequent bouts of aggression, hostility, and rage- punishments are not working or ineffective
- Learning to build resiliency, esteem, confidence, worth and value
- Parent education on over-parenting, helicopter parenting, anxious parenting, constant reminding...you are ready to empower your child to learn to deal with real world consequences
- Your child is struggling or hurting or misbehaving
- Painful or exhausting family relationships
- Struggles with coparenting, blended family, step siblings, step parenting
- Child with low self-esteem/shyness/making friends
- Constant challenges with anxiety, mood disorders, impulse control, ADHD challenges, constant lateness, missing assignments
Play is a natural language for children to work through fears, concerns, and big events in their life. My practice uses the power of play to help kids with big life circumstances, whether divorce, grief, anger, anxiety or school related concerns.
