Counseling of Alexandria, LLC, LCSW, RPT-S, RYT, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Alexandria
You know how sometimes parenting kids seems impossible? They're crying and can't be consoled, they are upset and you don't know why, they don't listen to directions, can't sit still and they are anxious and worried for no reason. Things are out of control and you have tried everything. Well, that's what we do. We partner with you to get your happy kid (and you) back. We want to help you enjoy your child again. We help parents balance love with effective parenting.
From a mother- "I had forgotten what my daughter's laugh sounded like. I didn't realize she had stopped laughing until it came back. She's my giggling little girl again. We have some tough moments, but we work through them together. Thank you. My sweet girl is back."
We are passionate and super-nerdy about our work. That's why we train in and use brain-based methods of therapy in addition to talking with play therapy, yoga, and EMDR. Ask to schedule a free Happy Parent Consultation to see if we're right for you.
