Parenting is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences we can have in life. It’s a journey filled with ups and downs, and there are no perfect solutions. As a parent, you may find yourself feeling lost and unsure of how to best support your children through their own unique challenges. Whether it’s big behaviors, anxiety, or insecurity, family counselling can provide the support and guidance you need. See if any of the following fit for you:

      • You have a child with big emotions and behaviors that make daily routines feel overwhelming.
      • Your teen is struggling but every time you try to help, they yell, “you just don’t understand.”
      • You have a young adult that seems paralyzed by making the wrong decision about their future, so instead they do nothing.
      • The whole family has a hard time communicating without yelling so loud the neighbours can hear.
      • As a parent you find yourself either yelling or throwing your hands up in defeat – you’re exhausted with it all.


Our therapists our here to help! We help children, teens, young adults, and parents build core life skills, strengthen relationships, and reduce household stress.  The families we work with:

      • experience, manage, and express a full range of emotions – in helpful and respectful ways
      • become more capable at monitoring and controlling behaviour – resulting in decreased household tension and conflict
      • develop close and satisfying relationships, in and outside the home – which helps to buffer the impacts of stress and increase resilience,
      • experience increased feelings of self-worth, value, and safety – greatly needed to face life’s challenges.

We want children, teens, and parents working together to learn how to truly listen to one another, communicate respectfully, and engage in collaborative problem solving.  Our therapists teach skills that leave parents feeling confident, kids thriving in their environments, and families experiencing more fun and connection!

Let us help you build safe and supportive relationships with your children, teens, and young adults. Together, we can navigate the ups and downs of life and create a nurturing environment for your family to flourish.  Fill out our form to get started.
