Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible — the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.
And we can often miss the signs that bigger things are happening with our children and teens until we get right to the edge of a cliff.
Our experienced professional team of therapists focuses on strengthening children and their families with essential knowledge, tools, and resources. Our strategies include individual and group counseling, play-based therapy, assessment, executive-function training, and professional and parent development.
We help wiggly kids, stressed-out teens, and the families that love them!
Continuing on the theme of HOPE this month – Between COVID, quiet holiday celebrations, school closings, disruptive race relations at a new peak in the USA, and parents at home seeking new exciting ways to accommodate wiggly kids, not to forget our confused pets…welcome 2021.
“I went home and practiced what Amy taught me…and it worked!”— 8-year-old coaching client
Amy knows how to relate to children, and make them feel comfortable . My son was shy at the beginning but Amy asked him a couple questions about what he likes and immediately found the connection to him. He happily followed her in the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and preformed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s bc of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
“Amy talks about moving children from being externally-driven to internally-driven…and she helps you get there!”— Parent of 15-year-old daughter
“Amy is like Oprah – she’s the neighbor you love who is very, very smart”— Parent of 14-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter
