As a dedicated, loving parent, you have tried all the moves; timeouts, consequences, rewards and punishments. At this point, you have grounded them until they are 35! Nothing works. The tantrums and acting out are getting worse and your kids are getting too big to hold down anymore. You and your family have taken some hits and family life is a nightmare. If you have a gifted or twice-exceptional child in your home, the intensity in your home is over the top and you just can’t take it anymore. You need new tools and you need them yesterday!
I have a toolbox of tangible moves that work to calm the chaos in your home. From a background in child welfare, I bring so much more than new tools to your doorstep. I dive deep underneath your child’s behaviors to get at the root cause of the challenging episodes. I then gently guide parents to look at their own triggers which tend to fuel the fire in family conflicts. It can be scary for parents to look at themselves, but this is the first step in becoming the healers in the family. When we are done working together, you will be that trusted, go-to parent you are longing to be.
I am the mother of three gifted and talented daughters, now in their twenties. I struggled with overly strict parenting, especially with my middle, twice exceptional daughter. I followed the best parenting practices of the time, to no avail. It was not until she was twenty-two that I made that lens shift. I learned to see that she was doing the best that she could all along and that she was so much more than just her behavior. Today, we have a loving, trusting relationship. I am so glad to be included in her life to share her journey.
Let me help you make that connection you have always dreamed of having with your child. I offer In-Home family therapy sessions for a real hands on approach, when it is safe to do so after Covid. For now, I have pivoted my unique family therapy practice, online.
