Your child can thrive, and you can be a great parent to them. Parenting is a challenge, and there is no shame in your asking for help!
More than anything, you want your child to be safe, happy, and successful.
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development outlines the responsibilities of parents as:
- Keeping children from harm
- Spending quality time and listening to them
- Providing affection, structure, and consistency
- Setting and enforcing limits
- Monitoring friendships
- Seeking help for any medical, developmental, or behavioral concerns
These are likely responsibilities that you are already fulfilling for your child. Even so, you may be feeling like there is more that you could do.
Maybe this is a general feeling, or maybe it’s due to specific challenges you are having with your child. Either way, your concern will only be made stronger by comparing yourself to other parents.
But the nature of parenting is that it’s not “one size fits all.” Countless books, articles, and blog posts have been written on the topic. And they all suggest different tips and tricks, making you feel like you’re always missing a key step.
Challenges of parenting
As your children grow up, there are countless issues you might face as a parent. Some may be more focused on you and your own challenges, such as:

If you know you are struggling, and your own support system is limited, therapy can provide you with the foundation you need.
Here’s what to expect when you work with us:
Free Phone Consult:
At Bricolage, we extend a free 15-minute phone consultation to make sure we are a good fit to work together. We will discuss what your goals are, explain what therapy will look like, and how your life will be different after working with us. By the end of this call, you will have
a clear idea of your next steps.
Your first meeting with your therapist will be between 60 and 70 minutes and will allow the two of you to begin to build a relationship.
You will go over the information you provided before this initial session as well as dive into all of the elements of your story. Throughout
this appointment, you and your therapist will work as a team to create your action plan.
Once you and your therapist begin to work deeply together, you will experience a type of treatment that has been completely tailored
to you and your needs. Your therapist will take keen notice of where you are in your wellness journey and ensure that the exercises you complete in session will bring you a sense of comfort and peace as you move forward.
Completion of Goals
As a team, you and your therapist will continue to evaluate your progress and growth. Eventually, the two of you will recognize that you
are responding to stressors more effectively and that weekly therapy might no longer be necessary. At this point you can choose to come to session less often and together you will decide what level of support you need for the future.
Our team of compassionate professionals will help you tap into the strengths you already possess and guide you to stop looking for the “if” and start taking advantage of the NOW.
