Parenting is a rewarding experience with ups and downs, but there are times when the downs are too much to handle on your own. A parenting therapist can devise strategies to help you get through difficult situations that arise as you’re parenting.

Many therapists specialize in working with parents, new mothers, and fathers trying to figure out how to be a better parent and partner. Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

  • You’re a new parent and feeling stressed out.
  • You’re the parent of an older child and not sure how to best relate to them.
  • You are having problems in your marriage related to parenting or parenting styles.
  • You’ve relocated and things in your family feel unsettled.
  • You need to vent about your parenting frustrations.
  • You want to improve your parenting skills.
