Does it seem like nobody listens to you until you’re screaming at them?
Your requests are pretty reasonable–just pick up the socks off the floor! And yet, somehow it never gets done until you lose your mind. Does this sound familiar to you?
Maybe you are at the point where you don’t even know what to do anymore–you’re overwhelmed.
You’ve tried counting to 3, you’ve tried time-outs, you’ve tried everything that people have told you that it was supposed to work and yet NONE of it works with your kids.
You fear that your child is never going to make it through life successfully by the way he or she is functioning now.
We see these kind of people everywhere and how these children have grown up to be. This is your worst fear for your child.
I don’t recognize myself anymore, I’m just not happy.
Maybe you’re even losing sleep because it has gotten to the point where you are so stressed and worried about life you don’t know how you can keep functioning like this anymore.
Do you feel like you and your spouse/partner are like roommates?
All you talk about are the children, pets, work, chores, and the bills. Everyday, every month, and every year that goes by you both feel more and more distant in your relationship. When you talk to each other it just ends up in a fight. Does this sound familiar to you?
Raising a family can be difficult and it’s even more difficult when you have children who have behavioral problems and/or having difficulty doing well in school. I can work with you and your family on getting everyone on track and get where you want your family to be. You may say how? I work with your children, you, and the school, so everyone can be on the same page. I help create a behavior plan at home (if needed) and work on your child’s behavior and/or emotional issues in therapy.
When children act out, there is a reason or multiple reasons for this, and I help identify what those reasons are. I help children learn appropriate coping skills, anger management skills, and social skills. I increase self-esteem, communication skills, and organization skills while I decrease fears, and reduce any anxiety and depressive symptoms.
When you work with me, I will help your child manage anger. The screaming matches come to an end. You can sit down at the dinner table and have a peaceful evening conversation, and homework battles will cease to exist. I will help with appropriate socialization skills, so lack of good friends is not an issue. Your child can play with her friends and siblings without fighting or having a tantrum. He or she will be able to share toys without having a meltdown and is no longer a sore loser when losing at a game.
Parents tend to put themselves last. That makes it difficult to have a balance in life. I assist couples and individuals to gain control of their lives, and to know that it is ok to put themselves first and how to implement it. How can you take care of your family if you are unhappy and stressed all the time? How can you find a supportive significant other if you have low self-esteem, poor communication skills, and a negative self-image?
When you work with me, I will help you gain insight about yourself, decrease your worries, increase your self-esteem, increase your happiness, and teach you effective communication skills. You will no longer be scared that you will lose your relationship because you spoke your mind appropriately. You will give yourself permission to go out with your friends and not feel guilty that someone else is taking care of your kids, because you deserve it! You can now find a partner that is worthy of you and that you no longer settle for less.
Couples tend to get into a rut with the everyday grind. They neglect each other’s needs, wants and desires. The relationship of the couple is on the back burner because there are always something more pressing to handle.
When you work with me, I help get your relationship back on track. You and your spouse will make your relationship as a priority not as an after-thought any longer. You will be able to communicate and compromise effectively without any disrespect. Lastly, you will fall back in love with your spouse again and enjoy each other’s company once again! All of this and more is what happens when a good therapist engages the best treatment that is most appropriate for you.
