Are you looking for a provider who specializes in working with young children who display difficult-to-manage behaviors? Are you desiring a stronger and more positive relationship with your child? Does your child struggle behaviorally or show difficulty adjusting to the birth or presence of a new sibling? Early intervention is essential to helping young minds thrive, and it’s not too late to get the help your family needs. If your child is displaying temper tantrums, depression, anxiety, clinginess, hyperactivity, impulsivity, aggression, defiance, or any other challenging behaviors, then seeking professional help may be a great next-step for you and your family. Disruptive behaviors can lead to familial/ marital distress, increased parental distress, and can negatively impact a child’s ability to learn and develop meaningful connections with others. Our team also includes professionals who are trained in addressing issues related to maternal and paternal mental health, postpartum complications, birth trauma, and mental health challenges experienced throughout the perinatal period.
