S. Abigail McCarrel, LCSW, DCSW: Family Trauma Therapy
You are a parent and you want what is best for your children. At the same time, you may not have your parenting act altogether, but you do not want to be judged or shamed because of it.
So, how do you know if I can help you? I bring years of education, experience and out of the box thinking to my Family Trauma Therapy. Families become stronger as parents become stronger.
Families are Where the Action Is!
Since trauma and strife thrive in secrecy, I welcome and encourage everyone involved to join us for family therapy. If it would be helpful, even extended family and family friends may have a seat at the table. Yes, cliché as sounds, “it takes a village.”
Check out my option for In-Home Family Therapy for busy families.
We move to the challenges in the family and learn how to turn hurtful messages around, clearing the way for empathy and compassion.
From the kitchen, we might move to the living room for a family activity. We will work on increasing understanding, closeness and connection.
In order to stabilize difficult behaviors, we will collaborate to solve problems, create new structure and routines, and establish traditions and rituals. Through consistent and nurturing interactions, family members will learn to trust and heal, allowing you to enjoy the family that you have created.
