If you’d like a time-tested plan to get out of overwhelm…relieve stress, anxiety, and worry…and gain more autonomy in healing from past traumas…then I could not be happier that you’re here right now.
Here’s the story:
My name is Matthias Barker. I’m a professional psychotherapist with thousands of hours of research and clinical experience in dealing with acute traumas.
Here’s why this is important for you:
Both in my private practice as a psychotherapist and in my interactions with people on social media…
It seems that every day I’m talking about some form of familial conflict.
If you’d like techniques and skills to help you repair and establish healthy boundaries with a parent...
Even if only around certain subjects that feel strained or awkward or are causing distance…
I'm glad you’re here today.
A felt coldness or distance.
Awkward, tense quiet.
Passive aggression or out-right harassment.
Maybe negativity or criticism from a parent is the norm and you feel anxious in their presence. Because of this, you may even find yourself thinking about ‘taking a break’ from them or cutting them out altogether.
Maybe you begrudgingly go along with family events or parental obligations…but you don’t enjoy them, you check out, and find them unsatisfying…even stressful.
Maybe you’re the one playing the role of the ‘parent’ in the relationship and you’re just confused about how to navigate their needs or what your obligations are.
Whatever the case may be…
Experiencing boundary violations can be disorienting. It can lead you to second guess yourself, turn away from the other person, and ultimately wear yourself out worrying about it.
To make matters worse…
We pent up anger…
Lose our temper...
Hear only what we want to hear through the lens of our resentment…
Feel ‘bruised to the touch’ and highly sensitive to old arguments...
Our untreated parental wounds put us on the defensive, skew our vision, and rob us of our ability to navigate the situation in a grounded and balanced way.
It could be that the untreated wound or let down from a parent makes it hard to know what to say… like you don’t have an emotional compass to rely on.
This feeling of not having control can be compounded by a history of abuse, trauma, or neglect…
Or simply brought on by the absence of warmth...frequent put downs, criticisms, and ‘I told you so’s’...and not finding the acceptance you crave.
Sometimes, even though there’s nothing terrible you can point to in your childhood…
You just don’t get along as well as you’d like to.
If you can relate to any of the above…
If you’d like a better relationship with a parent…
If what you’ve been trying simply hasn’t been working…
Here’s some good news:
I recently recorded the Boundaries With Parents workshop.
This series of 3 videos (60-minute total runtime) is designed to give you some tools and strategies you can use right away to extend the proverbial ‘olive branch’…
And with it the opportunity to move toward a SAFER, more connected, and less turbulent relationship with a parent.
Even if you’re mostly happy with your relationship but you’d like a few ways to better approach a touchy subject that’s been giving you a pit in your stomach...
This workshop is for you.
My style is accessible, fun, and free of psychobabble, so you don’t need an advanced degree to understand it.
There’s no “fluff” in any of this, either.
You’ll walk away with practical insights and tools you can use starting today to diffuse some of the tension you may be feeling.
However, before we go any further, let me make something clear:
I don’t know the details of your situation.
And this workshop is not the same as one-on-one counseling with me.
(Nor is it intended to replace the counseling you’d do with a local therapist)
It’s simply meant to provide you the context you need to approach the problem of parental conflict in a more meaningful way.
So while not everything may be specific to your situation, this workshop will give you research-backed principles and strategies that have been shown to work in expansively diverse situations.
In a minute, I’ll tell you about how you can get access, but first…
There’s just a small taste of the topics covered in the workshop.
You can expect a thorough discussion on improving communication with a parent and setting boundaries, in a format that anyone can understand. Also, the strategies I reveal are straightforward to implement.
These are the same research-backed techniques I use with my private counseling patients. They represent my own take on the prevailing models today (and as such, you won’t find this information anywhere else).
Even if you just want some tools to help you become a more effective communicator and to build your confidence in setting and holding to boundaries…
You’re going to love the workshop.
So, here’s the deal:

P.S. Here are some of the questions most commonly asked about the workshop:
Hi, I’m Matthias. I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I've been formally trained for treating complex trauma, anxiety, and marital issues. I treat a large variety of mental disorders and difficult life circumstances in my clinical practice based in Spokane, Washington.
I'm about showing you how to move towards what's meaningful in life despite hardship. I wanted to make this workshop available because so many people I talk to feel at an impasse when it comes to dealing with a parent. But they don’t want to just cut them out, either. My hope is the workshop will empower you to be true to what matters most to you, and communicate with your parent about it in a more impactful way.
