Behavior problems, complaints at school, “acting out,” and clinginess — all of these and other problems of childhood and adolescence can be addressed in therapy.
My primary professional experience, in outpatient and school-based settings, has been with teens and children. One of the most important lessons I have learned is that although therapy can create great changes in teens and children, the best way to make those changes last is by working with the whole family.
Although I may agree to see a child or teen in individual therapy, much of my work will be with parents. By changing your child’s environment, we have a better chance of achieving your child’s goals.
