Parent Counselling

Feeling overwhelmed, uncertain about how to communicate with your children, or anticipating another challenging moment? Perhaps your teenager seems distant or exhibits disrespectful behavior? Maybe you find yourself resorting to yelling, feeling like nothing else is effective. I want you to understand that your child's struggles are not a reflection of your shortcomings. However, you hold the power to instigate positive change and provide invaluable support for your loved ones.

15-minute consultation to determine if we're the right fit for you
