For many people, parenting is one of life’s most rewarding, enriching experiences. It can also be one of life’s most challenging experiences. If you are struggling with parenting your child, we can help, whether your child is a toddler, school-aged, teenager, or young adult. Examples of issues that you may be looking for guidance on to help your child with include (but are not limited to):

  • Tantruming behavior
  • Bedtime/sleep-related challenges
  • Toilet training (including setbacks and regressions)
  • Parental preference (your child prefers one parent over another)
  • Separation anxiety
  • Following household rules and accepting limits (e.g., screentime)
  • Emotional regulation
  • Eliminating power struggles
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Communicating and verbalizing feelings
  • Navigating transitions within the family (moving, birth of a sibling, parental separation/divorce, etc.)
  • Increasing family connectedness, enjoyment, and fun

We can assist you with all of these things and more while maintaining (or improving) the integrity of your relationship with your child. You will learn how to establish a secure base so that your child feels safe with you as you work on various issues with them. Our methods are both evidence-based and creative, tailored to meet your family’s needs.

“Children don’t need perfection. They need connection.”

Westside Psych, a Group Psychology Practice, was co-founded in 2018 by a team of psychologists who saw a need for comprehensive and high-quality mental health care. We have since expanded our practice to include other mental health professionals and provide training and supervision to pre-licensed therapists. Each of our therapists have unique areas of specialization and expertise, which allows us to collaborate and provide a range of care to individuals, couples, families, and organizations.
