Teen Parenting

“As children develop, their brains “mirror” their parent’s brain. In other words, the parent’s own growth and development, or lack of those, impact the child’s brain. As parents become more aware and emotionally healthy, their children reap the rewards and move toward health as well.”

Daniel J. Siegel, The Whole-Brain Child

Family responsibilities, career/work pressures, and caretaking roles can all be overwhelming.

Juggling these multiple roles can wear down your normal coping strategies, causing anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, or even physical responses.  We see parents in all stages of their parenthood that may be struggling with:

  • Feeling distant or the loss of connection or fun
  • Not feeling like a cohesive family unit
  • Communication issues
  • High conflict in the family
  • Change in family structure (additions to family or loss of a loved one)
  • Co-parenting issues
  • Adjusting to children going through new developmental stages
  • Increased external stressors affecting family life

Journeys Can Help

In the midst of high stress, change, or enduring difficult symptoms, having a compassionate professional walk with you can help. Working with someone who understands family systems and these issues can make the path to an improved family life a positive and healing journey.

A Journeys therapist is well equipped to sort through the issues you and your family may be having in order to get to the root of the problem. With up-to-date trainings and unique specializations, our team approach will help ensure that you find the counselor best suited for you and your family. Whether your current issues are a result of recent stressors or past trauma, working with a Journeys therapist can help you gain an understanding of the issues and move forward to a more fulfilling and satisfying family life experience. Our therapists can provide individual coaching, couples counseling, or family sessions to help you and your family improve family dynamics and communication.

But, we understand you may still have concerns about family issues in treatment…

“I’m afraid that talking about all of our problems in therapy will only make things worse.”

Talking to a well-trained counselor is a different experience than talking to a friend about your problems. Our treatments are designed around meeting goals that you and your counselor will set together. Our therapists use communication, questions, and thoughtful dialogue to help you meet your goals and to help provide insight along the way. There are many ways to achieve your goals in therapy, and our counselors can quickly help you identify which method will be most helpful for you and your family members. Working through issues in this way brings about much relief, greater joy, and empowers you with tools to help yourself long after treatment is over.

We generally recommend scheduling a specialized assessment with a trusted Journeys counselor to evaluate what your child or family’s specific needs are, as well as determining best the options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the best fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for your family.
