Parenting Young Children

Parenting Young Children

Parenting is tough work. Sometimes our children's behavior is perplexing and it can be confusing for parents to know how to best address concerning behavior. I do not endorse any specific method of parenting. Instead, I use my background in developmental child psychology to help parents understand their child's emotional needs and develop a parenting plan that works for their unique family. Together we explore the ways in which their child's behavior trigger a negative reaction within themselves. I teach parents skills to keep themselves calm during challenging parenting situations. I promote mindfulness practice and connection as a means to achieve a healthy and satisfying parent-child relationship. My goal is for my client to feel confident in their role as parent. I provide a non-judgmental space for parents to openly discuss the difficulties they face as parents, both internally and in the relationship with their child.
