Austin Parenting Therapy
How many times have you wished for a parenting manual that could magically tell you what to do in every challenging moment? At GT Therapy Group, we recognize how hard you work to be the best parent you can be, and how difficult, scary & isolating it can sometimes feel. We weave together the science of your child or teen's developing brain, attachment research, and extensive family therapy training to help you find your center, parent from a place of wisdom & heart, and feel more connected to your family and your self.
parenting across the lifespan
From the moment you become a parent, your world changes. Therapy can be a safe place to unpack all the ways parenthood can change us, and how our identity can transform in unexpected ways. Whether you're a first-time parent struggling to regain your sense of self, or a parent with an adult child who you want to feel more connected to, therapy can help you nurture your most important relationships and tend to the person who often gets overlooked in your role as parent: you.
Parent coaching can be incorporated into individual, couples or family therapy, and it can also be a standalone service for parents who want to dive into a specific problem or parenting dilemma and come away with tangible and practical tools to manage it, with the accountability and perspective that a therapist can provide. Parent coaching may not be appropriate for every situation, but our therapists can work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs and incorporates parent coaching as appropriate.
parent support groups
Parenting can be lonely. We offer support groups for parents to feel connected, where you can let down your guard and open up in a real, authentic and meaningful way with other parents who get what its like to not be the mythical "perfect" parent. Having a supportive group of your parents who you can be safe to be yourself with can be incredibly healing. If we don't have a group that's right for you right now, get on our waitlist and we will let you know when we open up a new parent support group. You don't have to parent alone.
