Parenting isn't what you thought it would be.
It seems easier for others.
Their kid knows how to follow the rules, deal with being told “no,” and goes to bed on time.
In contrast, everyone in your house is always arguing.
Fighting with your co-parent about how to discipline.
Your kid may have a diagnosis of ADHD, anxiety, or depression. She gets upset over everything or seems to be constantly angry.
Or maybe you’ve spent hundreds of dollars getting him evaluated and there is no clear-cut diagnosis but everyone in your home is still unhappy.
Maybe you’ve received frequent emails about your child’s misbehavior at school.
Maybe you’re afraid to take your child in public because his behavior causes you embarrassment.
She won’t get off her cell phone. He’s obsessed with Fortnite.
Your family is struggling. You need help.
I have an office in the Carmel area of Charlotte, and you’re welcome to come there.
But I also offer a service where I come to you. Your home, on your schedule. No waiting rooms.
Each session is 75 minutes, so we can maximize the benefit of our work together each time we meet.
We’re all working together, so if one of your other children is struggling with something, I can support them, too. I collaborate with teachers, physicians, psychiatrists, and other professionals to coordinate the best treatment possible.
The support I offer is meant to be problem-focused, practical, and individualized. I don't want to just talk theoretically about parenting issues. I want you to get relief; to see real change in your home. I want you to get through this rough time and get back to your life with newfound knowledge to stay happy and healthy.
This is an investment in your family. It's a little unconventional. You’ll find me to be a good communicator, caring, accessible, and focused.
Let’s get started.
Schedule a free 30-minute consultation call so you can tell me about your needs, ask me all your questions, and find out the next steps. No obligation or pressure, just some information gathering so we can find out if we're a good fit.
