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.
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.
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.
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.
Taking steps to better yourself as a parent shows your child how much you care and will benefit you and will have lasting benefits.
Behavior management skills and charts to help make parenting easier for you and build independence for your child.
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.

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 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.
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.
