Parenting Issues We Can Help You With

Parenting is perhaps the most profound responsibility one can take on and must be treated as such. As your children grow and evolve, so do the issues you will face together. Here are some of the issues we can assist with

New Parenting Skills

Stepping into parenthood can feel overwhelming. New parents and parents-to-be often grapple with self-confidence, postpartum issues, sleepless nights, feeding routines, and understanding their newborn’s needs. Our sessions equip new parents with essential skills, ensuring a smoother transition as they begin this great adventure.


Sharing parental responsibilities can be complex, especially when parents have differing beliefs, views, and personalities. Our coaching, and perhaps couples counseling, can help you and your partner discover strategies to bridge gaps and ensure your children receive the consistent care and love they deserve.

Parenting with Divorced Partner

Parenting with your divorced partner presents significant challenges that profoundly impact your child. From managing visitations to maintaining open communication, therapy can guide parents in ensuring the child’s well-being remains central amidst separation.

Single Parenting

Single parents juggle multiple roles, facing emotional and logistical challenges as they do the work usually handled by two. Our parent coaching provides tools and strategies to manage these challenges to the best of your ability, ensuring your child has a supportive family experience.

Parenting Teenagers

The teenage years are marked by rapid changes and newfound independence, which often strains parent-child relationships. Together, we’ll explore insights into the teenage mindset, devising strategies for effective communication and understanding as your child moves toward adulthood.

Foster Parenting

Opening your home and heart to a foster child is a truly commendable act. Nonetheless, unique challenges must be navigated to ensure a nurturing environment for the new child. We’re here to offer guidance and navigate the fostering adventure by your side.

Parenting Special Needs Children

Children with special needs require a higher level of unique care and understanding. Our therapists are here to equip parents with strategies tailored to their child’s needs, promoting their growth and development.

Parenting After Trauma or Loss

Parenting after trauma or loss can be one of the most difficult and frightening experiences, especially if the experience has equally affected you. Our trauma-informed team offers support and tools for you and your child to grieve and heal in a way that supports healthy emotional well-being.

Parenting LGBTQ+ Youth

Understanding and supporting your child as they explore their LGBTQ+ identity is a delicate and challenging experience for some parents. Our team is here to provide insights and strategies to foster a loving, inclusive home environment.
