Counseling for Parenting in Tucson, AZ—Pima County Counselors and Therapists

Parenting a child is one of the most wonderful experiences someone can have. It’s full of love, joy, and undoubtedly, stress. Thriveworks Tucson will be the first to say parenting is equal parts amazing and terrifying, joyous and difficult, fulfilling and exhausting. We also believe there are ways to extrapolate the joys and decrease the pains of parenting.

It’s a safe place for parents who have questions, concerns, or are plain-out exhausted. We get it! Wanting to attend counseling for parenting to either work on yourself, your relationship with your child, or your child’s emotions or behavior is a display of love for both yourself and your kids.

What Is Counseling for Parents for? 

What is the difference between counseling for parents and counseling for children and adolescents? Is therapy for parents actually for the parents or for the kids? Will Thriveworks Tucson teach parents how to parent?

Therapy for parents- whether though online counseling or in-person counseling- is a broad topic! Thriveworks Tucson believes in meeting clients where they are at. You can bring up whatever concerns, questions, and topics you want to! It is not a black-and-white field. Counseling for parents might involve counseling for children. It could also involve counseling for developmental disorders such as ADHD or autism. Maybe we will work through a mental health concern like anxiety or depression.

The one thing Thriveworks Tucson will not do is tell you how to parent. Everyone’s parenting style is unique, and our job is not to change that. We can offer some professional tips on how to lovingly handle the ups and downs of a child’s emotional and behavioral health, but that does not mean we will look at you with any judgment. The counselors in Pima county work to be nonjudgmental and empathetic.

Also, give yourself some love! Parenting is hard work, and no one is perfect. Part of counseling for parents might be readjusting your priorities to include yourself. Self-care and self-acceptance are a vital part of parenting.
