Parenting Support

When parents take the step and sign up for parent support, they show their children that they care about the well-being of the family unit and also help remove the stigma behind seeking mental health care.

How Can Parent Support Counseling Help Me?

Understand Your Parenting Style

When you gain a better understanding of your parenting style, we can look at what is working and what areas you may need help. I can work with you to provide options for different parenting ideas and tools that will help support your family. 

Learn Conflict Resolution Skills

Parent counseling can teach you techniques to handle conflict – which indirectly teaches your child that conflict can be healthy and can provide a good tool to start productive communication.

Build communication skills 

The keys to unlock open communication between teenagers and parents exist. I’ll show you how to use them, and in doing so you’ll learn that you can’t safeguard your kids from pain, but you can soothe the suffering. 

Model Self-Regulation Skills

Taking steps to better yourself as a parent shows your child how much you care and will benefit you and will have lasting benefits.

Kids learn to respond to mistakes by mirroring our responses. We can raise problem solvers by moving away from blame and guilt and towards finding solutions.” - @curious.parenting

We’ll Find A Behavior Management Style That Works For You

Behavior management skills and charts to help make parenting easier for you and build independence for your child.

You Don’t Have To Be Perfect

Lastly, and most importantly, parent counseling removes the pressure of having to parent perfectly. One of the most common reasons parents avoid counseling is the idea that going to counseling means you’ve failed as a parent. In fact, I believe it’s the opposite. My role as the counselor is to work with the parent without judgment.

Taking steps to better yourself as a parent shows your child how much you care and will benefit you and will have lasting benefits. Sign up now.

"Stacey had truly been a Godsend to me and my kids. It has been a real struggle in their lives just being teenagers in this world of social media and being teens alone but during our period of time with her they have also had to go through a separation of their parents.

It’s been a really rough 5 months or so and I honestly don’t know what I would’ve done without Stacey’s services. She is so kind and patient as well which any parent truly needs in their life. Highly recommend." - Parent, Krysta G. (Clients- 16 female, 13 male)

I’ve Never Done Therapy Before. How Does It Work?

15-Minute Consultation

First, you’ll talk with me on a free 15-minute consult call. We’ll make sure I am a good fit for what you need. Therapy is a personal relationship and should be an enjoyable, fun, refreshing relationship. We’ll also talk about costs. 

Then, we’ll schedule your first appointment, and I will send you access to the balance portal where you’ll find all the legal authorization forms, practice policy and billing info.

Your First Session

Your first session is one hour long. We’ll talk about your past and what life looks like currently. You can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone. I’ll create a treatment plan and goals that we’ll work on together in ongoing weekly sessions.

For more information

It’s most common to schedule regular weekly sessions with your therapist. As we progress appointments occur every other week, then eventually monthly and end up with check-ins as needed. 

Many times when, you find a therapist that you have a good relationship with, you may come back with life’s ups and downs for help processing. You will always be welcome at Balance!

Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development.
