I know life can be stressful and overwhelming for you. It’s easy to feel lost and alone, not knowing where to turn for help.  It’s during those times that I am here to offer you support and encouragement, while helping you get through the most difficult time in your life, to facilitate growth and emotional healing, to help you resolve issues, overcome obstacles, regain control of your life, build your self-esteem, and to provide you with tools to bring about positive change so you can move forward to a more productive, content, and fulfilling life. There is no reason for you to go it alone.

Although I work with clients who come to me with issues regarding depression, anxiety, divorce recovery, grief and loss, phobias, and relationships (including premarital counseling), my specialties are PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and domestic violence. One technique I use (EFT) is unique and so effective, that it yields permanent results in a very short time, in overcoming depression, PTSD (which can be caused by any traumatic incident), anxiety, fears,  addictions, physical pain, and disease. It also promotes weight loss and smoking cessation.  To learn more about the theories I draw from and modes of therapy I use, click on the “Therapies” page (above).

Working through your thoughts and emotions can create a newfound freedom to be who you want to be. Experience the journey to a new life through self-discovery, positive change, emotional healing, and growth, with a sense of self-acceptance, self-confidence, empowerment, meaning, direction, and purpose. Allow me to take you on your journey. You deserve to be happy, and I want to help you achieve happiness.  Call now for a free consult, to see how I can help you today.  (720-291-5707)

COMMON DISCIPLINE MISTAKES

Some of the most common discipline mistakes parents make and how to avoid them:

Losing Your Temper

When you habitually yell at your children, they can end up yelling back at you. Children are actually more responsive to calm requests and commands.

Disagreeing on Rules

Never disagree on discipline in front of your children. Parents must present a united front to their kids when enforcing rules. Otherwise, they will quickly learn how to “divide and conquer.”

Treating Children as Small Adults

Although you want your children to know that they are heard, you shouldn’t make the mistake of letting them have an equal say in the rules of the household. This is a parent/child relationship, not a democracy. As children get older, parents can explain the reasoning behind their decisions.

Bribery

Bribery is not a healthy or effective form of motivation for children. You want your children to learn right from wrong regardless of whether or not there is a reward for behaving in an appropriate way.

Unhealthy Praise

Be careful of praising your children too much or too little. Appropriate praise can be healthy and build self-esteem, but if overused, it can leave a child feeling inadequate when he/she doesn’t receive it. Give affirmation for positive behavior and hopefully, your child will repeat the good behaviors that bring appreciation.

Inconsistent Discipline

It’s important that parents are consistent with discipline in order to avoid making their children confused about guidelines and consequences. For example, if action A leads to consequence B, it needs to do so all of the time.

Inappropriate Punishment

The punishment should be a natural and logical consequence of the punishable behavior. If the punishment isn’t fair, you can lose the opportunity to “teach” your child through the act of disciplining because your child’s focus will be on the unfair punishment.
