Parenting Guidance and Support
Parent Guidance can be understood as a wonderful way in which to bounce ideas off of a professionally trained, developmental specialist (Child Psychoanalyst) to understand the nuances involved in child development. Together, a parent and trained professional, are able to flesh out the intricacies involved in parenting a child of any age.
The best successes in parent guidance are those times when the parent gains the knowledge and therefore the confidence, to do and say things at home, in different ways. It has been my experience, that through collaboration with the Child Psychoanalyst, parents begin to feel better equipped to handle situations that previously left them feeling paralyzed.
All sessions are 45-minutes in duration. Because the appointment is reserved for you (or your child), and this commitment on both of our parts is a most important aspect of what makes therapy successful, it is policy to charge for appointments not canceled with 72-hour notice (3 days) in advance. Fees would only be waived, if a cancellation is occasioned by circumstances, which we would both define as an emergency, and then discussed and mutually agreed upon.
