The Coronavirus Crisis Make Family Stress Worse
If you are struggling more than usual with worry for your family right now, you are not alone. Even if you or a loved one have not been personally affected by the virus, you may feel like you are sitting in wait for the other shoe to drop.
So many of us are worried about getting infected. You may fear that germs can be transmitted via surfaces, clothing, food or the air. There seems to be no definitive answers to your questions, which makes it difficult to know exactly how to keep your family safe. This feeling of being out of control is a parenting nightmare.
And, if you and your loved ones are safe, you might be sheltering at home together 24X7, and that brings a whole lot of stress in addition to already trying to manage challenging episodes from your children.
Helping you manage this additional stress and come out of this Coronavirus crisis intact as a family, is something I can currently do via online therapy.
Reach out if you would like to chat with me to see if working together at this time or in the future makes sense for you and your family.
Family Therapy is the answer for Stressed-Out Parents
Is your sense of family lost in a maze of work, school, carpools, extra-curricular activities, homework, tutoring, volunteer work, sports, doctor’s appointments, therapy appointments, rehearsals, and even spiritual obligations?
Additionally, you just can’t keep up appearances anymore, pretending that everything is alright when family conflicts are getting worse! In light of your situation, Family Therapy may be the answer. To find out...
Call Abby for a Free 20-Minute Consultation (626) 755-4059.
I offer an option for Family Therapy in your home.
You Might Be Thinking
- Our family is falling apart.
- All we do is yell and hurt each other.
- We long to be connected, but the trust is gone.
- We are lost, scared and angry.
- We love each other, but we feel so alone.
- I don't know what to do.
Sometimes, you may wonder how you ended up with so much conflict in your home and question whether you are cut out to be parents. As a result, you are so incredibly ready to learn how to bring peace to your house and your family back together. You long to say such loving words:
We are so glad you were born. You belong. Leave your things for safe-keeping. We want to hear all about it. Come, rest awhile. We will watch over you. You are safe. You are precious. We understand. We are family. Welcome home!
I am an expert in family therapy. I use a “hands-on,” collaborative approach. I work with the whole family. When appropriate, we will include your extended family and your family’s support systems to dig deep and work hard to improve communication and solve family problems.
I am ready to take your hand and help you create a trust-based parenting home where you become the healers in your family, rich with traditions and rituals to pass down through the generations.
From a foundation of safety and trust, we will work to build secure relationships. We will create family routines and structure that strengthen your role as parents. As our work progresses, you will become more confident parents. A healthy family identity will flow from developing close family ties. It is never too late to create healthy family bonds.
Family Therapy For Gifted Children:
I am a provider with SENG (Serving the Emotional Needs of the Gifted). Families with Gifted children face unique challenges and parents may not know where to turn. Find out more about my Family Therapy work with Gifted Children with an In-Home Therapy option.
Individual Therapy For Gifted Students' Parents:
As a parent of a gifted child, you may have lost your sense of who you are as you struggle to meet your child's challenging needs. If you are worried that you are not showing up as your best self in your child's life, then individual therapy may help you calm your tired brain, learn self-compassion and confidence as a parent. I offer online therapy for parents or sessions in my Arcadia office.
Family Trauma Therapy:
Individual trauma, crisis, and stress affect the whole family. For this reason, every family member is important in healing family trauma. When dealing with trauma in the family, everyone is supported to come together to help heal the hurts and wounds. Safety, trust and communication are key in Family Trauma Therapy. This work may be best done in the family's home, where children feel most comfortable.
If you happen to be parents of an adopted child, I offer Post-Adoption Family Therapy. Adoption is a lifelong process for families and you don't have to go it alone. With my focus on family culture and identity, family bonding and connections strengthen. With the challenges of adjustment of adoption, In-Home Family Therapy may be the best way to facilitate attachment.
You can get to know me a little better by reading my blog. I share ways to have fun with the family while making deeper connections and suggestions to help families run a bit more smoothe.
