Parents and children are seen together in counseling to strengthen bonds, improve communication, and develop more effective problem solving strategies. Contemporary families are faced with a myriad of stressors, including financial uncertainties, academic and developmental struggles, and communication breakdowns. Family therapy can help family members find more productive ways to interact and reestablish satisfying relationships.
Central to The Maple Counseling Center’s holistic view of treatment, parents are seen as essential partners in the successful treatment of their child or teen. Parenting is one of the most challenging and potentially rewarding roles for many adults, and we actively engage parents in their child’s counseling experience. Parents are the crucial first step in developing a comprehensive individualized treatment plan for each child.
Parents participate in treatment through regular communication and meetings with their child’s counselor. Through this dialogue, parents learn about typical development as well as to how to recognize and address the specific needs of their own children.
