for adults and children
Bridging the connection between child and parent.
Family therapy encourages parents, siblings, grandparents and/or other family members to participate in treatment with or without the child’s/youth’s presence. Family therapy sessions focus on educating family members, improving communication, disrupting destructive relationship patterns and building positive connections to increase the supportive capacity of the child’s/youth’s family system.
Through Parent Coaching, parents learn to attune to their child’s feelings and accurately communicate them back to their child. This deescalates tantrums instantly, reduces anxiety, and builds emotional resilience. Parents also learn how to effectively use empathy to strengthen and deepen relationships with their children, and to develop effective strategies to manage negative behavior and avoid power struggles.
