Children and Adolescent Counseling

Don’t You Wish Parenting Came With a Handbook?

Every parent struggles with parenting at some point in time. Sometimes the concern is a simple “is this a normal reaction to the circumstances?” At other times a behavior or a school issue causes worry.

Parents may seek help for children in the following instances:

  • Children who are disorganized
  • Children who consistently act out, push buttons, and test limits
  • Children who have difficulty with divorce transitions
  • Reunification with a parent

Sometimes parents need help:

  • Resolving differences in parenting styles
  • Over-scheduling
  • Determining normal behavior for different ages and knowing when to seek help
  • Establishing communication with children or adolescents who won’t talk
  • Establishing effective discipline and learning to set limits
  • Resolving sibling rivalry

For parents in any stage of divorce:

  • Establishing a different kind of family
  • Helping children adjust to the new reality
