Behavior & Emotions

What is typical behavior and what isnʼt? Since you have more time this summer, consult with a behavior therapist specializing in pediatrics and adolescents about common developmental topics such as tantrums, eating, sleeping, aggression, anxiety, shyness, attention, defiance, power struggles, depression, or other concerns. Individual assessment and ongoing treatment available.

Just for Parents

No one said raising children was easy. Especially when the kids are home all summer! Feelings of stress, frustration, and being overwhelmed can be common aspects of raising a family. Our trained counselors can help support you with managing these feelings, putting your home back in order, maintaining a marriage, and/or improving overall parenting and discipline. Individual and couples assessment and treatment available.
