Jennifer Widerhorn, LMFT
A Marin County Family Therapist
You are feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and dreading the next tantrum. The screaming and crying outbursts are a daily event, and causing enormous stress on everyone. You’ve tried bargaining, yelling, bribing, timeouts, and nothing is working. You’re exhausted and burnt out. Your marriage, career, and social life is suffering.
Nothing seems to help make it better, easier.
Help with tantrums, teens acting out and more in Marin County
You don’t want to parent like your parents or have the kids get angry with you. You don’t want to yell so much. You end up feeling like a bad parent and stressed about how to manage or avoid the next meltdown. You wish the kids would just listen to you.
Say no more, I get it. I’ve worked as a family therapist with all sorts of families: single parents, divorced parents, parents to small children, preteens to older teens, and extended families with grandparents in the home. I know how much you want a happier, calmer life. I will collaborate with you to teach effective parenting tools to help you take charge of your family in a loving, fair, and neutral way. I also work with children and teens to teach them cognitive-behavioral, emotion-focused, and interpersonal communication skills to manage their self-defeating thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
I believe all families deserve to live harmoniously and lovingly.
