I work with parents, families and children ages 4-18 at times when it feels like:
- Children are always pushing boundaries
- A teenager is consistently breaking house rule or curfew
- Parents are playing good cop/bad cop
- Mom or Dad is parenting alone, without the support of the other parent
Sometimes when parents call me they’re at the end of their rope trying to manage a child’s inappropriate behaviors. It can be hard to know when to get help. If you’re not sure if therapy is the right fit for your situation, contact me to find out.
Does your child do the following when angry, frustrated or anxious?
- Blame others for his or her problems
- Yell, swear or say mean things
- Give you the silent treatment
- Drink or use drugs
Then therapy might be a good option. Parenting kids with oppositional behaviors can be extremely challenging. I can help you understand and manage the annoying, disrespectful, and abusive behaviors in your child.
Together we can collaborate on strategies and tools to get a handle on your child’s behavior. Contact me for a free phone consultation to get started.
