At the very least, an ineffective parent?
Any parent who is being completely honest has felt this way at one time or another. One thing that sets a good parent apart from an ineffective one is the determination to "pull up your boot straps" and to press on. Another is to know when one thing is not working so that you can try something different. And to realize when your resources are running out and you need help.
That's where we come in. At Restoration Counseling Service, you will be treated with respect by an experienced counselor who has made it their passion to help parents just like you! There is hope. There is help. There is an answer. Please contact one of us using any of the methods below for children’s and teen’s counseling. You need help with your kids and we can offer that help. Here at Restoration Counseling Service, we are the resident child/teen experts.
You may have difficult kids, kids going through a hard time, or you may simply be unsure of the best way to parent your children. Many parents simply need some discipline help or assistance with proper boundaries for children. We can help with kids and parenting.
Feel free to browse our website and learn a little more about us and what we do. When you're ready, please give either one of us a call. We don't have answering services to answer our phones, we do. If we happen to be in session with a client or enjoying a little time with our own families, please know that we will get back to you as soon as we can… usually within 24 hours. That way you will have a chance to "interview" one of us on the phone before making an appointment. First and foremost, you need to get the kind of help that's right for you. Only then will you learn how to get things right with your family and feel like an effective parent again.
One of the key questions we can help you to answer when you call is, "Is this an issue that can be resolved with some new parenting skills or does my child need help to work through/process this?". Either way, we have someone here who can help. Generally speaking, our staff is best equipped to work directly with children age 10 and over. Often it is best for a counselor to teach a parent how to best work with a child and we do this often. Furthermore, if the counseling is part of a family or group, a child younger than 10 may be just fine, but there are many variables here so we suggest you call us.
