Adult psychotherapy geared at parental identity/relationship strugglesRequest Service →
Parenthood often brings otherwise competent people to their knees as they try to deal with the frustrating behaviors or strained relationship with their child. There is nothing more painful than feeling resentful, hopeless, helpless or depressed when it comes to your parent identity. Perhaps you have already read many parenting books and vowed that you would not react negatively towards your child. Or perhaps your teenager is painfully rejecting you and you vacillate between being trying your hardest to be kind and crying or screaming, making things even worse. Or perhaps you feel like your child is ruining your life as he behaves in a destructive or dangerous manner and you feel frightened or out of control. In these instances, it is helpful to take time for yourself to reflect on your journey as a parent with someone who really gets how hard it is and who will not judge you for the things you’ve done or not done. One of Dafna’s specialties is helping parents to pause, ground themselves, and focus taking constructive action. Her empathy for parents is deep and unwavering. Yet at the same time, she does not shy away from telling hard truths.
