Counseling

Parent Enrichment Place offers individual and couples counseling for parents of children at any age. CAFE recognizes that parenting is one of the most important, and sometimes difficult jobs you have. As adults, we can struggle to contain our emotions and impulses, or it seems too hard to cheer ourselves up after a disappointment. Sometimes we forget to think before acting. All of these abilities, or lack thereof, have to do with our self-regulation, which is essential for our emotional maturity, social connections and raising children. Luckily, even as adults, our brains still have the ability to grow and change in positive ways. And that’s where counseling can help.

Individuals and/or couples may choose to seek counseling services for help with parenting challenges, personal hardships in their own life experiences, co-parenting issues, effective communication, and many others. How do you decide if couples counseling is for you? Typically in couples counseling, the relationship become the primary focus, so if there is an issue that you and your partner want to tackle together, couples counseling may be for you. A degree of commitment is necessary.

Yoga for Mental and Emotional Wellbeing

Yoga is not only beneficial for our physical health, but also for our mental and emotional wellbeing. Participating in a regular yoga practice has been shown to not only decrease blood pressure and promote weight loss, but also to increase self-esteem, energy levels, and combat the effects of day-to-day stress. Take an hour out of your busy day to breathe and let go with CAFE. You deserve it! Class will be led by Caroline Schratz, MS, 200-RYT, NCC.

Must register. 10-class packages are available for $50.
