Are you seeking parenting advice from a professional with years of both counseling and personal experience? And is it important that this professional present advice in a step-by-step, easy-to-use-right-away fashion with useful childhood development information that explains your child's behavior?
You've just described Gary M. Unruh, MSW LCSW. He has been a child and family mental health counselor for nearly forty years. During that time he and his wife, Betty, have been blessed to raise four beautiful children, and he is a very proud "papa" of seven terrific grandchildren. For two years, he learned a lot about what kind of care clients respond to best when he was the CEO of a mental-health managed-care company for Colorado Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
Out of these experiences he developed "results-oriented therapy" — therapy that identifies exactly what behaviors the parents want changed by the end of treatment. This therapy provides practical, successful, step-by-step instructions that really work; and explains why children and parents behave the way they do.
