Listen for Your Child's (& Partner's) Feelings
Is your child having difficulty coping with their feelings? Maybe he holds his feelings in until he gets sick, or maybe he explodes and can't calm down. Maybe she says things, like " I wish I were dead," or " I hate you." As a parent, these statements and behaviors are alarming and may be a sign that your child needs professional help. Perhaps your child is having behavior problems at school or home. Maybe the school has called you with concerns. Or perhaps, your child is having trouble making friends or having trouble with a bully. Maybe your child is not motivated to completing school work. Or, suddenly your tween or teen has started hanging out with a new group of friends that has you concerned. Maybe your child has suffered a loss or has been a victim of abuse. Or perhaps you are going through a divorce and you worry about your child's adjustment. These are some of the problems I can help you and your child with. I can help you explore options available to you, including medication or obtaining other evaluations, as well. I will support you every step of the way, so that you will feel more confident and know you are doing the best to care for and nurture your child's development.
