Parent Skills Training


Dr. Orris regularly speaks to parents/parent-teacher associations on various topics including:

Suicide prevention

How to raise emotionally healthy children

Proactive versus reactive parenting : strategies for effective discipline

Coping with anxiety, depression, and heightened emotions as a parent


We all wish that our children had come with a manual. For many of us, parenting has proven to be the biggest challenge of our lives. And that was before our "babies" turned into teenagers...  A parent myself, I understand raising children brings many challenges and without the proper tools, it can feel unmanageable. I provide consultation and coaching for parents with children of all ages. Drawing from Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills, parent consultation focuses on helping parents enhance the relationship with their child through the use of validation skills, influence behavior using behavioral science techniques, and regulate their own emotions to avoid reactive parenting. 

If you are a parent looking for support and guidance as you navigate the challenges of raising your child(ren), contact me to discuss options for parent skills training and consultation.
