Parenting and Family Counseling

Problem behaviors are those that aren't considered typically acceptable. Nearly everyone can have a moment of disruptive behavior or an error in judgment. However, problem behavior is a consistent pattern. ... Children with problem behaviors often require counseling intervention to improve their symptoms and behaviors. 

  • Learn how to manage disrespectful or disruptive behavior
  • Recognize your parenting styles and how to be more effective as a parent
  • Learn and practice effective communication
  • Learn the difference between punishment and consequences
  • Teach your children to show more caring behavior to the family, including toward siblings
  • Help your children to be empowered not entitled
  • Set and maintain appropriate boundaries
  • Commitment and follow through

A typical session is 60 minutes. Sometimes, an initial evaluation takes a bit longer.


I do require 24 hours notice of cancellation. Psychotherapists in private practice make our living only if you show up for your sessions. We don't have paid vacations, sick time, or medical benefits paid by an organization. So, I greatly appreciate your commitment and understanding.

Please call to cancel, otherwise, I reserve the right to charge you for the session.
