Parenting support: how I can help you best support your child
The decision to seek therapy for your child is not always an easy one. As a parent, you might feel helpless and at a loss to provide your child with what you know is needed right now. If your child has been struggling for some time, or if recent events have impacted your child’s typical resilience and ability to cope, I am here to help. I will listen to your concerns and challenges, and provide parenting support that helps create beneficial change for your child and family. My job is not only to support your child, but to empower you to feel more confident in your ability to successfully use recommended strategies with your child.
You can support your child to create effective and lasting change
I know you are hugely important in your child’s life, and can be an expert on how your child negotiates through the world. I know by even reading this paragraph and looking at my website you are in the process of seeking positive change for your child. I also know how imperative your support is to the success of the therapy process. It is a luxury for me to collaborate with you during sessions and in regards to your child’s well -being. Together we can create a manageable plan to implement strategies at home to decrease stress levels in your household. Since I only see your child for one hour a week, I need your help in supporting your child to generalize positive coping skills learnt in session to home, school, and community settings. I am always available for parenting support when new or unexpected challenges arise.
Autism help for parents
If you are a parent of a child with autism, I am here to give you specialized parenting support to assist you in strengthening your child’s positive coping skills and collaborating with you to develop a customized treatment plan that resonates best with your child. I offer a program that fits your child’s unique and individual needs: a combination of behavioral therapy, developmental play therapy, and art therapy, all infused with a mental health focus to target more complex cognitive and emotional issues. In my practice, I specialize in help for children with autism. As a parent of a child with autism, it can be very difficult to negotiate the best ways to seek and obtain effective resources for your child. In my work with kids with autism and their families, I know how important it is to feel your child’s needs are being met. It is essential that your child is motivated to reach his/her full potential, yet able to effectively meet challenges across settings of home, school, and the community.
