Parenting is not easy to begin with and doing it all alone can be very overwhelming.  Rather you are a single parent or a stay-at-home parent, if you live in the Coral Springs / Parkland / Coconut Creek Florida area, you are not alone. Trinity Harbor is recognized as a resource in Coral Springs which improves the lives of individuals and families within the community.

Trinity Harbor offers private parent counseling sessions, parent support groups, and parent workshops. You may be a great parent but learning new skills will make you an even better one. Sometimes it isn’t about gaining parenting skills but more about gaining parenting coping skills to deal with the stress that comes with raising a child or children as a single parent. At times, you may need both.  Additionally, trying to parent while you are lonely or depressed is never a good thing either.

Many potential new clients are people of faith and they often ask if we provide Christian Counseling or Spiritual Counseling. The answer in short is, “Yes! We do.”

However, allow us to elaborate. What we provide is professional, client-centered , Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

  • Professional meaning that our therapists are at least Masters level and are licensed by the State of Florida.
  • Client-centered means that clients have the opportunity to find a self-awareness that enables them to realize how their behavior and feelings along with their attitudes are being negatively affected.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a mode of therapy used with Client-Centered Therapy that enables clients to understand how their feelings and thoughts influence their behaviors. Using these types of therapeutic approaches are commonly used to treat an array of disorders such as anxiety, depression, additions, phobias, and relationship counseling such as couples or marriage therapy.

Providing client-centered therapy enables the client to bring their faith in to the therapeutic session. If a client wishes to include faith-based counseling they should request it during their initial phone consultation. This will allow us to select a therapist who has training and strengths related to their specific faith.

There are some really good spiritual counselors that lack professional training in the mental health or behavioral health fields. Likewise, there are some really good professional therapists who lack religious or faith based training. Trinity Harbor is well equipped to provide you with either or both.

Tips and Ideas to Help Parents Make a Difference

Teen Substance Abuse Coral Springs

Communication

  • Be absolutely clear with your kids that you do not condone the use of drugs. Don’t leave room for interpretation. Talk often about the dangers of drug and alcohol use – more than one or twice a year.
  • Give honest answers. Don’t make up what you don’t know. If asked whether you’ve ever taken drugs, let your child know it is important to learn from the mistakes of others, so we can protect the future health and safety everyone.
  • Don’t react in a way that will cut off further discussion. If your child says things that challenge or shock you, turn them into a calm discussion of why he or she thinks people use drugs; whether they’re worth the risk.

Build Mutual Respect

  • Be a living, day-to-day example of your value system. Show the compassion, honesty, generosity and openness you want your child to have.
  • Know that there is no such thing as “do as I say not as I do” when it comes to drugs. If you take drugs, you can’t expect your child to take your advice. Seek professional help is necessary.
  • Examine your own behavior. If you abuse drugs or alcohol, your kids are going to pick up on it. Or if you laugh at a drunk or stoned person in a movie, you send a bad message to your child.

Be Consistent

  • Create rules – and discuss in advance the consequences of breaking them. Don’t make empty threats or let the rule-breaker off easy. Don’t impose harsh or unexpected new punishments.
  • Have kids check in at regular times. Follow through is key, if you don’t care they will not care.
  • Call parents whose home is to be used for a party. On party night, don’t be afraid to stop in to say hello (and make sure that adult supervision is in place).

Seek Help Early
If you have concerns for any person, child, teen, or adult, it is crucial to seek help.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

What is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?

image of child experiencing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity DisorderAttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a psychiatric disorder of the neurodevelopment type where issues related to acting out impulsively, paying attention, or simply being overly hyper that are not appropriate for the child’s age. These issues sometime result in poor performance in school. Studies indicate that 1 to 5 percent of children are diagnosed with ADHD and boys are three times more likely to be diagnosed with it than girls. About 40% of the children, who are diagnosed with it, will continue to have the issues throughout adulthood.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is normally treated using counseling / therapy, medication, and adjustments to lifestyle. However, medication is not normally introduced unless improvement does not occur with the use of counseling. Additionally, medication is not used unless symptoms are moderate or above. The good news is that many children under this diagnosis are able to develop coping skills which aid them in living a productive life with little or no related issues.

Adult Attention Hyperactivity Disorder, sometimes referred to as Adult ADHD, Adult ADD, or ADHD in Adults is a neurobiological condition of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The three versions of ADHD are inattentive, hyperactive/impulsive, and combined. Adult attention deficit disorder (AADD) is normally related to an adult procrastinating, being unorganized, finishing work, or being inattentive. This sometimes creates life programs related to relationships, work, and finances.

It does appear that AADD can be inherited; normally symptoms are seen in childhood, prior to age 7. With adults, treatment of ADHD is sometimes treated with a combination of skills training, life coaching, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication.

What is Play Therapy Coral Springs?

Play Therapy Coral Springs

Sand Play Therapy Coral SpringsPlay Therapy is an expressive form of therapy that helps a person explore their unconscious, promotes growth, and encourages healing. Through the use of symbolic figures, objects, miniatures, and sand, children, adolescents, and even adults are able to recreate their inner world. Not only does Play Therapy Coral Springs provide an individual with a visual image of their unconscious, but it also gives a person the opportunity to work through their trauma, distress, and internal conflicts in a safe space. In fact, because Sandplay is a non-directive technique, it helps promote self-discovery, self-awareness, and self-acceptance. Most importantly, Sandplay helps relieve anxiety and emotional distress ultimately improving a person’s overall well-being.

The Play Therapy Coral Springs process begins by introducing the client to an assortment of items such as animals, people, transportation, bridges, walls, trees, plants, and other various objects. Bounded by the safety of a box, the client begins to recreate their world through unrestricted, creative play in the sand. As the therapist sits silently nearby and observes, the client begins to develop concrete representations of their inner world. Not only does the process provide insight, but it also promotes change in several ways: good conquers evil, boundaries (fences, walls, bridges) are set up or removed, chaos becomes order, transformation begins to emerge, and mastery becomes apparent. Whether a client is overwhelmed with emotions or simply unable to articulate their distress, the sand tray becomes the means in which a person is able to heal.
