Parent Coaching/Consultation

Parent Coaching

Parenting is a hard enough job in itself, let alone doing it on your own.  Not to mention that the parenting landscape is in constant flux with our ever-changing world.  Parenting isn't the same as it was in the 80's and 90's the world has changed and so has both our children and the intentionality required in parenting our children.  

You want to raise children who her respectful and responsible.  A difficult task when today's family continues to be in crisis.  Together we can navigate the twist and turns of parenting and make the most of our most important relationships.  Parenting with intentionality and love. Helping launch children as the best versions of self, living to their full potential and seeing life as their playground for opportunity and adventure.

What's the Process

Catch your breath because at Traveling Light Counseling we will help you by:

  • Clarify your parenting goals and purpose

  • Understand and manage flooding

  • Develop skills, routines, systems and rituals in order to live a fulfilling life with your children, full of balance, love and intentionality.

  • Create a more peaceful environment at home despite the complexity that comes with raising a Complex  Gifted, Strong-willed, Highly Sensitive, Anxious or ADHD child.

  • Learn how to be an Emotion Coach where you talk with your children about their feelings, and offering them strategies for coping with emotionally difficult situations. The goal is to empathize, reassure, and teach using a 5-step method that builds emotional intelligence and creates positive, long lasting effects for children.

 

For those transitioning through divorce we can help you:

  • Discover your power, in order to feel confident and comfortable making everyday and big decisions.

  • get in touch with the things you value most in order to clarify your parenting goals and purpose

  • unload and offload any baggage you have been carrying around in order that you can go into the next chapter of life lighter and freer.

  • develop skills, routines, systems and rituals in order to live a fulfilling life with your children, full of balance, love and intentionality.

  • find normalcy in your new reality in order to not only survive all the challenges and transitions but come out stronger and wiser.

 

You and your therapist will meet together weekly for 60-minute sessions. Therapy is best done with at least an 8-week commitment. We find that clients who cannot commit to at least 8 weekly sessions and meet less than weekly tend to have more difficulty in establishing a relationship with their therapist and often spend their sessions recapping the previous weeks instead of focusing on forward movement (but there are exceptions). After 8 weekly sessions, you and your therapist can discuss the movement toward your treatment goals and whether reducing sessions to biweekly or terminating therapy is the next step as this a process that is very personalized to everyones unique situation.
