Family Therapy

Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on the planet. Definitely underpaid sometimes. The Attach Place is here to help parents feel competent and confident in making connection and making correction. Our children need us to hold direction for them as they make their way through their developmental milestones into adulthood.

Where’s the Handbook? you might ask. How do I deal with Social Media? Homework? Sexuality? Drugs and alcohol? Step-parenting? Divorce? Grief? School failure? Depression? Disrespect? Traumatic events? Self harm? Dishonesty? Teen drama? Mental health issues? ADHD? Out-of-control behavior?
