Individual Parent Sessions

Heather Can Help You If...

You struggle with any of the following daily issues or larger questions:

 

  • I don’t want to overschedule or push my child, but I worry that they will fall behind all the other kids.

  • Childhood seems different now than when I was young - these kids have so many more activities and so much more pressure. Life is just busier now for families than it used to be.

  • I didn’t expect homework to be such a fight but it feels like a daily battle.

  • Transitions are a major struggle for my child.

  • I would like to take a step back and think about the adult I want my child to become.

  • I don't want my child to fail or to feel bad about themself but I want them to be resilient. How much should I protect her from frustration and disappointment?

  • Mornings are chaos in our house - everyone is tired, stressed and rushing. How can we get our days off to a better start?

  • I used to be so close to my child, but now that they're a teenager, I feel like I barely know them and we argue all the time.

  • My child seems to whine or pitch a fit whenever they don’t get their way.

  • My child struggles with anxiety, ADHD, or other issues. How can I best help them?

  • My child seems to need reminders or help with everything, from getting dressed to cleaning up to doing homework. Why aren’t they more responsible?

  • My kids fight all the time. How can I make our house more peaceful?

  • I don’t want my child to be spoiled, but sometimes it’s just easier to give in than to say no.

  • I want my child to get into a good college, so I feel like I have to start thinking about it now to make sure they have enough accomplishments to stand out.

  • My kids don't seem to listen to me at all, and I hate having to repeat myself. How can I stop the nagging?

  • My partner and I struggle to agree on how to parent consistently.

  • I wonder what school will be the right fit for my child and when the best time is to make a change.

  • My child struggles to fall asleep without me or often comes looking for me after I put them to bed.

  • I want to make sure my child is always challenged enough and reaching their full potential.

Approach

Heather works with parents by appointment virtually and at her office in McLean, VA.

Sessions are typically 60 minutes. Each session is customized to your family's unique needs and can range from a single session targeting a specific concern to multiple sessions, allowing for feedback and making adjustments.
