Unfortunately children do not come with instruction manuals. We offer behavior management training to improve your child's response to adult instructions, minimize negative attention-seeking behaviors, and improve the relationships and structure within the family.
Children can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help your child overcome these symptoms and guide him or her through the process of grief and healing.
Children develop emotional regulation and safety through thier early attachment to a primary caregiver, and disruptions in that relationship may impact his or her behaviors throughout the child's life. Attachment therapy is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
