Being a parent is arguably one of the greatest joys and privileges in life. But it doesn’t mean it’s all smooth sailing. Any number of issues can affect the parent/child relationship at any stage of a child or adolescent’s development.

Tending to the demands of a newborn, addressing a behavioral issue in your teen, or caring for a special needs child are just a few examples of parenting challenges that can leave you feeling inadequate and ineffective as a parent. Some situations, such as the loss of a child or divorce, can also cause feelings of depression, helplessness and despair. Parent counseling can help.
Parent counseling can benefit parents in a number of ways. It can help reinforce and strengthen your parenting skills so that you can better manage circumstances that are causing stress. It can help you understand and strengthen your role as a co-parent or step-parent. A parent counselor can also address emotional or mental health issues that you might be dealing with in your personal life that can be impacting your parenting.
