Parenting & Family Dynamics

Parenting a strong-willed and intelligent child can be a real challenge.
I understand and I can help.

Problems Parents Face
Parenting a strong-willed and intelligent child can be a real challenge. Inverted hierarchies, temper tantrums/melt downs, sibling rivalry, defiance, over sensitivity and anger management issues are all common problems that many parents face. You are not alone and there are ways to overcome these issues.

Treatment Strategies
Behavioral modification therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are evidence treatment models that work to modify these troubling and disruptive behaviors. I use emotional intelligence based parenting tools so that you can help your child to better navigate their way through life. Children don’t like being “out of control” they simply do not know what else to do effectively. It is our job to teach them how to express their feelings, wants and needs in an effective and respectful manner. Studies show that emotional intelligence is a better predictor of success in life that intellectual intelligence (IQ).

There are not really any bad kids. There are just parents missing tools.
