You continue to see the same behavior and you are worried that something might be seriously wrong. You feel lost. You worry that your choices and responses to the stress are only worsening things at home. You feel guilt and shame. You may even feel like though you love your kid, you do not always seem to like him/her. This horrifies and scares you and you are terrified of admitting that as you feel it show that you are failing as a parent. You might fight a lot with your partner and feel totally unsupported at times. You want things to change but have no idea how. You feel terrified to talk with anyone about what is happening.

I have worked with families to help bring peace into their homes. This includes learning effective strategies to manage stressful behaviors, parental support and education, and communication training to help limit unnecessary conflict and improve positive interactions. Though there are common patterns, each family has its own culture and own set of needs. All recommendations are based on your unique family personalities and ways of living. No judgment. Just simple and effective strategies to strengthen you as a parent and help you create a loving home environment.
