A Tough Place to Be…A Safe Place to Go
As parents, we want what is best for our children. As much as we try to protect them, we know that sometimes things may happen that make us feel powerless, isolated, fearful, and concerned. Death, family substance abuse, divorce, domestic violence, bullying, an adoption in the family, abuse, trauma or mental illness are all events that can cause children and families to feel like their worlds are spinning out of control.
Children often do not have the vocabulary or ability to express verbally what is troubling them. Children may shut down or act out in anger when they do not have the ability to express their feelings in a safe and supportive way.
3:16 Family Counseling Center is a caring place that aids children and families to learn to express their feelings and develop coping skills in difficult times. I specialize in working exclusively with children ages 2-8 providing an inviting place for kids to build trust and process tough feelings and help manage mental health symptoms and behaviors.
I have also developed my own Biblically-based parenting program designed to help parents learn not just how to discipline their children but effectively meet their physical, spiritual and emotional needs. This drastically reduces both a child’s risk for behavioral problems in the future and a child’s present disruptive behaviors.
