Your family has experienced a major stressor-separation/divorce, loss or trauma that has impacted your lives. Life feels out of control and scary. Your young child is having difficulty sleeping, is worried and struggling in school. Your tween is sad and is acting out. Your teen is angry and doesn't seem to care about anything anymore. You're beginning to wonder if you have what it takes to help your family heal. It's getting hard to manage your emotions and provide comfort to your child/teen. You've tried it on your's time to let someone help.
I can work with your struggling child or family. I work to discover what is fueling behaviors, and help create new responses to old/new stressors. Your child can learn how to communicate instead of manipulate or shut-down, feel competent to overcome obstacles, and learn skills they really need as they move through life.
Imagine your child learning to manage big emotions instead of being overwhelmed. Imagine your tween/teen uncovering their strengths and being confident at home, school, life. Your family is only as happy as your saddest child. Call for your free 20 min consultation..let's talk about how I can help your child/family.
