I take a multi-dimensional approach to helping families overcome tension and stress. I look at how couples communicate, how routines are set up for success or failure, and how children’s time is managed. I will often do sessions in the home to better understand how communication breaks down, or how routines fall apart. I evaluate power struggles and demonstrate effective ways to better manage stress and disagreements.
Parent Education and Training
I have developed numerous structured trainings for parents. When parents come to me for support I evaluate what they need, and individualize my training to those needs. Generally, this is a short-term process designed to get past a difficult time, but when there are specific challenges related to child development or major behavioral concerns it can become more involved.
