Have consequences stopped working leaving you at a loss in the face of difficult behaviors? 

Are your date night conversations only about your children? 

Do you find yourself repeating what your parents said to you and regretting it? 

Are you seeking a more peaceful co-parenting dynamic that puts your child first rather than past marital conflicts? 

Looking For The Next
Level of Parenting?

Are you currently in search of a child therapist, but deep down, you feel that what could truly make a difference is building your skills and confidence in parenting? Through my experience, I have come to understand that when I assist a parent in feeling more empowered, it has a positive ripple effect on the entire family. 

Parenting is a Developmental Phase
Parenting does not come with an innate repository of all the wisdom and skills you’ll need along the way. As your child develops, so do you, in your journey as a parent. Embracing this perspective can offer a wonderful opportunity for personal growth 
A PhD. In Parenting is not required
While it might seem at times that you need to attend graduate school to cultivate effective parenting skills, rest assured that building the necessary toolbox is well within your reach.

Hello! I’m Jennifer Stoakes, MA, LMHC

A Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington State with over two decades of experience in the field. 

For the past two decades, my clinical focus has centered on children. I’ve consistently found that involving parents in a child’s therapy is the most crucial aspect of our work. My extensive experience is rooted in supporting parents and helping them become the best possible caregivers for their children. Shifting my focus to work directly with parents is a natural progression, driven by the profound lessons I’ve learned from the families I’ve had the privilege to assist. After all, parents are a child’s most invaluable resource.
