Family & Parenting Counseling

Family & Parenting Counseling

Building a sense of identity with parenting

Becoming a mother is a process that can be filled with both 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 and the future of their family.

Play therapy is a developmentally appropriate way of working with children by using children’s natural form of communication – play – to solve problems. Play is their language and toys are their words. We use play to help children gain insight and then to help them learn and practice new, more effective ways of being, engaging with others, and regulating their emotions.

Fertility Issues

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 what they pictured for years or if it might look very different — and this is often stressful. Individually and collectively this is hard for women, men, their marriages, and their families. 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.
