What do all winning teams have in common?
Dedicated team members and a really good coach. Your family is a team; the first, and arguably most important, one your child will ever be a part of. So how good is it?
Unlike family therapists operating in cold and sterile office environments, Susan’s approach to helping families become better families begins in the client’s environment of their choosing. Starting out with confidential, one-on-one sessions with each member of the family, Susan quickly builds the trust and rapport so critical to opening up the dialogue. Susan works with each family member to identify what’s not working and what is working. It’s personal and it’s empowering. She then provides the right tools and lifelong problem solving skills.
While Susan provides assistance with more serious issues such as drug use, physical abuse and even suicide, her coaching and speeches typically cover the concerns most parents experience on a day-to-day basis, such as:
- Homework and grades
- Talking back
- Video games, TV and computer limits
- Friends and parties
- Family rules
- Setting limits
- Building self-esteem
- Allowance and money
- Sibling rivalry
