Our approach at Miranda Counseling may seem unique, but we truly put an emphasis on the whole family. Many well-trained therapists make the mistake of working with only one member of a family: the child, or the parent. We believe in a wholistic approach: making sure the entire family is healthy and functioning. Every parent has a “guilt” button and worries they are “screwing up.”
Often children believe they are the problem and if only they weren’t the family would be happy (divorce, abuse, anxiety, etc). A therapist helping a child understand they are loved is one thing, but how much more powerful would it be to have the parent in session with their child to help them heal?
