PARENTING and COUPLES COUNSELING
At Milestones Counseling Services I provide counseling to
parents both individually and as couples. We work with blended and high conflict
families as well as families who are simply looking for an outside perspective
to help them become better parents.
As all parents know, having children can be both wonderfully
joyful and an incredibly difficult journey. It is often difficult to understand
our children’s thoughts and behaviors and difficult to set an example to those
we care about the most. In parenting counseling we work to help you understand
the attachment needs your child has and how best to meet those needs depending
on the age and stage of development of your child.
We also work to help parents understand their own motivations
behind their parenting behaviors and approaches. This helps parents recognize if
their parenting behaviors are really an attempt to teach their children or if
these behaviors are simply an emotional reaction to their child. This allows
parents to take a “step back” and objectively view the problems they are having
with their child from a new perspective and potentially make changes to help
both child and parents become more connected and happy.
Other issues addressed include
conflict resolution, affairs, couple’s communication, and pre-marital
