Family and Parenting Counseling
Family and parenting counseling is something that many seek after deciding to have kids as many individuals find themselves in need of support. Whether it is the process of trying to have kids and potential fertility issues, pressures of trying to be a perfect parent, or building a new identity as a parent, we are here to help. (We also offer support for relationship counseling, child counseling, and teen counseling if needed).
Our consult areas include:
Becoming a mother is a process can be one filled with joy and sadness. One process for many women is figuring out their sense of identity as a parent. We can help people explore their past to figure out what feels out of alignment for their future.
Fertility issues can be extremely painful for the couple who is trying to conceive. Many emotions come up in the process of trying to conceive like grief, guilt, stress, anger, loss, and anxiety to name a few. People are struggling to figure out if their life will look like that which the pictured for years or if it might look very different — and this is often stressful. Individually and collectively this is hard for women, men, and their marriages. Our therapists can support them in this difficult time and give guidance. Many clients have found that work in this area can help decrease stress and increase chances of fertility — and can help them feel supported for whatever lies ahead.
Parenting is challenging for every couple these days. There is more pressure than ever on parents to raise “perfect children.” Our therapists can help you to explore ways to parent children while maintaining balance in life. We can also give guidance on best practices in parenting.
