Chapel Hill, North Carolina therapist: Jennifer Plumb Vilardaga, PhD, psychologist

Jennifer Plumb Vilardaga, PhD

Psychologist, PhD
I love working with parents to manage their stress about being a parent, whether parenting small children and teens or improving relationships with emerging adult and fully grown adult children. Being a parent is a challenge for most of us, particularly those managing multiple life roles (such as paid work, home management, schooling, and other relationships). I am not an expert in WHAT you should do to parent your children well; I am an expert in helping you figure out HOW you want to be as a parent and empower you to seek additional support and resources that might help you achieve your goals. I can help you clear the fog to determine your inner compass for what matters to you most, and hopefully you will find ways to find balance, show up with your children in ways that are important to you, and be the best you you can be as you parent. If you need higher intensity resources for parent-child interactions or higher level skills for managing your child's very difficult behavior, I can help you figure out how and where you might succeed in bringing those specialty services to help your family.

Psychologist, PsyD
My experience in working with parents on parenting concerns in therapy has been deeply enriching and impactful. Recognizing the profound influence of parenting on child development and family dynamics, I approach these sessions with empathy, collaboration, and a strengths-based perspective. Through open dialogue and active listening, I strive to create a safe and nonjudgmental space where parents can explore their concerns, challenges, and goals. Drawing upon evidence-based practices and my expertise in child development, I provide practical guidance, psychoeducation, and skill-building exercises to support parents in fostering positive parent-child relationships, setting healthy boundaries, and promoting their children's social, emotional, and cognitive development.

Psychologist, Psy.D.
I help new moms and dads adjust to parenthood. Bringing a new baby into the house is stressful. We work on effective strategies to balance everything, maintain a good relationship, and adapt to an expanding family. I work with moms while they are pregnant, postpartum, and parents that have multiple children too. Dads need help adjusting too. I also work with parents with older children- to help them develop effective strategies for parenting, having good relationships with their growing kids, and adjusting to kids growing up or moving out of the home.

Nashville, Tennessee therapist: PSYCHe, PLLC, psychologist


Psychologist, PhD, LPC, PsyD, MSW, Marriage and Family Counselor, LCSW
If it’s therapy between multiple family members that you need, we have therapists with experience. Family therapy can be a great place to start or the perfect place to “end up.” When one member of the family is having issues, it affects EVERY member. How each person copes with problems is unique. If there is one thing a family therapist might share it would be this: When each person works to “own their part,” change is more likely to occur. Sometimes, it works best if individual therapy comes first—there may be a history of misunderstandings that need to be worked through before you all get together in the same room. Family therapy is even possible online. Each member can join from separate rooms, or they can sit together—just like in person. Learning the basics of healthy communication, identifying hidden resentments, and exploring unspoken family “rules” can be tough, but absolutely worth it. Let our therapists help to bring your family closer.
