Parenting stress is weighing you down.

As a parent, it is so easy to feel overstimulated, stressed, and burnt out. It seems like there isn’t enough time in the day to be a good parent, spouse, and employee. There are expectations placed on you that can seem so unrealistic or unattainable. Maybe you aren’t able to meet these expectations because you don’t have the resources to do so or maybe you don’t have the time.

As a parent it often feels like there is little to no way of succeeding. Perhaps you have a child who is struggling, and you don’t know how to help them, or they may not be allowing you to help. Are your kids fighting nonstop and causing chaos in a home that is just hoping for peace?

Maybe you have been having to work double time just to be able to keep your job, and things are falling behind at home. It can be very easy to speak to your family in harsh ways when you are overwhelmed by life, and it’s going ons. This can be such a trying time in life it can be so hard to feel like you are moving in a positive direction.

The Katy Counseling approach to anxiety counseling

At Katy counseling we believe parents are the experts on their child and are doing the very best they can. Together we will work with you to identify your particular parenting difficulties, the triggers for parenting stress, and your vision as both a parent and a family. With these pieces in mind, we will build specific strategies to help you soothe difficult feelings that come up with parenting, handle difficult and uncertain situations, and implement strategies efficiently and effectively.

What is holding you back?

As parents, it can be hard to admit that we are feeling overwhelmed. It is common to take your struggles and just write them off by saying these issues are that every parent has. Maybe you think that you are a bad parent if you admit that you are struggling. Let’s be clear, none of these statements are true. 

All parents struggle!  Research suggests that you only have to get it “right” about 50% of the time for your child to turn out fine.  At Katy Counseling, we will equip you with the resources you need to feel like a good enough parent who knows and believes they are a capable and courageous parent!
