By looking at this website, you have already taken a courageous step toward healing your child and your family. Seeking help is never easy. I will assist you and your child in building the strengths you already possess and discovering ones you never knew you had.
Together we will shape a comprehensive plan for your child and your family. This can include:
Take time to enjoy activities together as a family.
What parents can do right now:
When your child needs help, so do you.
Reach out to friends and family to cook you a meal, to take the kids for a night, or just to listen.
If you need support from other parents, take a look at the resources page for ideas on how to meet them.
Do fun things as a family even when you are having trouble. Eat dinner together, ride bikes, play games, read stories, make cookies, watch kid/teen movies, go to a museum or the park.
Remember the basics: a good night's sleep; a healthy diet of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables; and exercise that you enjoy.
