Psychotherapy is not always the right next step. Consultations for parents – 1.5 hours. In person, phone or online. Currently, I use FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or phone.
This may be helpful:
- If you’re feeling overwhelmed and don’t know what direction to take.
- If you’re confused about whether or not ongoing psychotherapy is necessary.
- If you sense like you’re missing something but don’t know what it is
- If your relationship with your child teen or young adult has gone downhill and want to repair it.
- If you know what you want to say but can’t figure out what words to use.
- If you feel disempowered and worn down.
I can address these questions in a parent consultation –
- As an adoptive parent, which direction do do you need to go in?
- Is this mostly about adoption, teenhood, parenting or a combination?
- Is this a problem?
- What does your child, teen or young adult need from you right now and why?
- How can you meet those needs?
- What do you need to know about yourself in order to do that?
- I’m also looking for strengths and liabilities. Stress, family history, known adoption history. Emotional and/or physical vulnerabilities.
