We used to enjoy spending time together.
Everyone got along.
Great conversations with mutual respect.
We could take a trip or watch a movie together.
The world seemed hopeful and full of possibilities.
That feeling of connectedness is now shaky
It’s hard to understand how you and your teen or young adult child have lost those positive feelings.
Spending time together or even communicating at all feels unhinged and disconnected.
Yes, your parenting is under scrutiny, and you feel the pressure.
And, now you are unsure if your child is even on the right path to happiness or fulfillment, leaving you confused and frustrated.
You have already tried everything.
Yes, you have tried to find that great feeling again.
You tried rewards.
You tried discipline.
You tried other interventions both inside and outside the home.
Yet, nothing seems to work.
So, your relationship has spiraled.
You are frustrated, exasperated, and don’t know which way to turn.
This is where I can help.
It’s not easy. But if you are willing to engage and change your mindset and approach, it will all be worth it.
Together, we will work to leverage your parenting strengths to create boundaries, empower your child, and positively
re-engage with one another.
Our work together will lay the foundation for lasting change in your life, your child’s life, and others in your family (spouses, partners, siblings).
Now is the time.
Hi, I’m Andy.
I grew up with divorced parents whose styles were very different, leading to confusion and non-attunement to my adolescent needs for support, security, and safety.
A few years ago, I struggled with my daughter as she faced anxiety and depression as a teenager.
Both experiences were challenging and heart-wrenching. I wondered, what could my parents or I have done differently?
In hindsight, after much learning and reflection, I realized a lot could have been done to make these far more positive experiences.
As a result, I have made it my mission to help parents like you find smoother and more productive paths, and I am trained and certified to do so.
So, even if your hopes and dreams for you and your child may not have been achieved, there are approaches that you can learn to adapt and make sacred and lasting change.
If you are ready to make changes, I am prepared for you. If you are motivated, it is time to reach out.
