CONSULTATION

Parent Guidance and Consultation - sometimes what is needed most is not therapy but a space for you, the parents, to reflect on your child's needs and behaviors as well as your family life and parenting practices. Parent guidance offers an opportunity for you to receive individualized support and strategies to help you support your child's development and to create more joy and connection in your family. Parent guidance sessions can also be useful to enhance child-parent or family therapy.
