PARENT/CHILD COUNSELING

Parenting is a most challenging and rewarding experience.  At Southern Light, Therapists work with parents to address the needs of their children in an individualized way.  No two parents are the same, no two children are the same, and each parent/child relationship is unique. Needs are addressed on a case by case basis, even within the same family.  The first appointment helps Therapist understand the needs of parent and child.  Therapist can then join with the parent and child to guide them toward a better understanding of each other and peaceful resolution.

For younger children whose behavior must be managed, Southern Light Therapists offer "Participant Observation" sessions in which the parent interacts with their child as Therapists observes.  Therapists then offer suggestions to the parent on ways they might effectively manage their child's behavior.
