PARENTING IN REAL LIFE
Understand And Navigate ADHD And Anxiety
Without Losing Your Mind
Are you at your wits' end, struggling with your teen? Is your teen struggling with school, isolation or friends?
When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, Anxiety or Depression, parents are overwhelmed and not sure what to do next. We are often not aware of the social and emotional impact that these struggles have on learning, motivation, behavior, and the whole family dynamic. And this last year has been especially difficult for all of us.
I help parents and families understand and navigate theses challenges of the teen years by giving them tools and practical strategies that allow them to communicate and parent more effectively. As a result, my clients have a more peaceful home, feel closer to their children, and are able to handle the challenges with confidence and grace.
When I work with teens I address self-esteem and confidence as well as behavioral, executive function, and emotional regulation challenges. I support and encourage them on how to advocate for themselves, develop resilience, reframe their thoughts, manage their emotions, and increase self confidence. We will reduce depression, stress, improve communication, and cultivate more independence and accountability. No more losing your mind.
Are you ready to calm the chaos?
I came to Dana in crisis mode with my daughter who suffers from anxiety. Although she is in therapy, I needed someone to help support me. I got that and much more. I now have the tools to be able to care for my daughter, the rest of my family, and very importantly, myself. Everything we talked about was action-oriented and achievable. Dana is like a very wise friend who has an endless supply of ideas and patience and is incredibly easy to talk to.
