I am so excited to announce that I’m now offering online parent coaching!
If you have a child (or suspect you may have a child) with an invisible disability such as ADHD, Anxiety, Sensory Processing Disorder, Giftedness or high functioning Aspergers I am here to support you on your unique journey and help you to put your ‘best parenting foot’ forward again with your complex child.
When raising a child with behavioral challenges, is not uncommon to feel like you got more than you bargained for in this parenting gig, feeling both frustrated and overwhelmed at the prospect of parenting a child that does not respond to our approaches the way we expect them to.
Confronting issues such as getting a diagnosis, navigating the mental health care system, whether or not to medicate, feeling isolated among family and friends, judgement from others, stressors on siblings and family system, and a sense of personal shame are just some of the very complex realities of parenting a child with an invisible disability.
Then there is the issue of finding a parenting style and approach that fits your child’s unique developmental needs, best serves their long term emotional well-being and leaves you feeling confident at the end of each day (to say that this is complicated is to put it mildly).
Wherever you are in your journey, I am here to help lighten your load.
I have been in these trenches too having navigated all of these things myself in parenting my own two ‘outside the box’ kids, at times feeling completely overwhelmed and hopeless (and I am a mental health professional! Just think about that for a second!)
I have also been supporting parents like you in my therapy office for 12 years now, and I am thrilled to now offer support in a less formal, less intimidating and easier to access format.
What Angela can do for your and your family:
- Support you in creating goals for yourself as a parent as well as creating a vision for your family.
- Support you in navigating day to day stressors with your child such as disruptive behaviors, transitions, meltdowns etc.
- Support you in moving through the mental healthcare system and explore options that best support your family.
- Support you in implementing best practices (grounded in latest research and neuroscience) for your child in the developmental, emotional and behavioral realms.
