Our children are sources of great joy and great concern! Not all of our children’s problems require counseling, but at times, our children’s moods and behaviors become troublesome and resistant to our efforts to help.  Consulting with a therapist can be an invaluable tool for helping children struggling at school, at home or in their friendships.  Therapists offer experience and objectivity  when approaching problems that seem to become more unmanageable despite our best efforts as parents.  Sometimes these problems are due to medical issues like:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Oppositional Defiance Disorder
  • Substance use

Other times, changing or unexpected behaviors are caused by transitions or situations like:

  • Divorce
  • Changing schools or homes
  • Addictions in the family
  • Abuse or persistent conflict in the family
  • Loss of loved ones
  • Family members with mental illnesses

A gifted therapist can guide parents and children through very challenging situations and help kids grow up with the least amount emotional suffering possible.
