Often, children are unable to explain why they are upset; which can be very concerning for a parent. You have realized something isn’t the same with your child, such as trouble at school or noticing that they avoid talking about certain topics. You have tried talking with your child but it doesn’t lead anywhere. This is where I step in.
I utilize evidenced based activities to encourage your child to work in session and to improve self-expression. When they are better able to identify their feelings related to emotions and situations that affect them, the reasons for their behavior typically becomes evident. I also teach coping skills that they can use to better manage their emotions and actions.
I partner with you and provide weekly activities for your family to complete at home so they can practice what is learned in session. Many families have enjoyed these since the whole family learns too!
