Adult Services

Relationship Support

Relationship Support

Being seen, heard and understood is essential for the development of our authentic selves. If we are immersed in an environment that consistently fails to acknowledge us for who we are, we build walls to protect ourselves from the blows of this non-empathic environment.

Infertility, Grief & Loss

Grief & Loss Support

When someone we hold dear becomes terminally ill or passes away, a very powerful process unfolds within us. This grieving process is unique for each of us, but it is usually very painful – often unbearably so.

Parenting Support

Parenting Support

Parenting is one of the few things in life that equalizes us. We all start out as beginners. We all want to be the best we can be for our children. We want to give them everything life has to offer.

Anxiety / OCD

Anxiety / OCD

Life can be stressful. We can go along, facing life’s challenges just fine, and then – suddenly – we might move through a phase in our lives that is particularly overwhelming. Perhaps there was a major life transition.

Depression

Depression

If you are feeling depressed, it can feel hopeless. You’ve tried everything – and nothing seems to be working. It can feel like you are in a dark hole, and there is no way out…yet.

Pain Management

Pain Management

When people are in pain, they tend to turn to medical doctors. And that is an important first step. But if the medical doctors can’t find a cause for the pain – or even if they can – it is helpful to know that there are

Children & Teen Services

Anxiety /OCD

Anxiety /OCD

When your child is overwhelmed by worry, it can have a tremendous impact on your life, as their loving parent. Worry sets off the fight or flight response – not only in our children, but also in us – as the adoring parent – as we witness our child get overtaken by a big wave of worry!

High Sensitivity

High Sensitivity

Many parents don’t want to label their children. This comes from a place of love, and a desire to bear witness to the unique human being your child is. However, it can be helpful to understand your child’s basic temperament, especially if you have a child with high sensitivity,

Defiance

Defiance

Over the years, I have learned that defiant children are crying out for help. Their off-track behavior is a signal to us, the loving adults in their lives, that there are some unsolved problems which are causing them a great deal of tension that need to be addressed.

Power Struggles

Power Struggles

Power struggles between parent and child are challenging for everyone – the parent, the child and the innocent bystanders who are witnessing the unpleasant and often highly charged dynamic.

Sibling Issues

Sibling Issues

When siblings fight, it tends to trigger us as parents. Our emotional brain goes on red alert and tells us to stop this bickering NOW! That is natural – we all get triggered at times. But it is important to acknowledge that we do have choices in those moments, and what we do when we are triggered matters a great deal.

Grief & Loss

Grief & Loss

When you have experienced a loss of a loved one, it can be challenging to support your child with that loss at the same time. You alone don’t have to carry the burden of that support.

We work as a unified team to support you

One of the benefits of working with the therapists at Mindful Child & Family Therapy is that we offer a team approach. One of our therapists can work with you, our child & teen therapist can work with your child / teen, our family specialist can work with the whole family and our couples therapist can support you and your partner with relationship issues, communication challenges and/or parenting differences / concerns. 

 

With your written permission, our therapists will meet together regularly and work as a unified team to most effectively support you and your family.
