Seeking counseling can help to decrease anxiety and stress, improve communication in relationships and make a positive difference in your emotional well-being. Counseling can help you and your family:

 

New Parents and Parents with young children

 

Slaters' Counseling Services provides education and therapeutic support for parents of children ages birth through three years of age. The early developmental years are both exciting and challenging. Successfully meeting these development goals lay the "blueprint" for your baby's healthy development. Our services are designed to assist you to identify and alleviate any blocks that interrupt the formation of the healthy and important bond between you and your very young child.

 

A major concern in the early parent/child relationship is the presence of postpartum depression. This diagnosis can be made up through the first year of your baby's life and can be devastating if left untreated. Slaters' Counseling Services is uniquely qualified to provide therapeutic services to parents' coping with this problem. While being a parent of a newborn is considered to be one of the greatest joys in one's life, untreated postpartum depression can cause isolation, depression and a sense of loss and guilt. You are not alone and there are recognized short term treatments for you and your family.
