Is your child having trouble making friends, paying attention in school or managing big feelings? Does your teen seem moody, distant and unhappy? Are you finding that your family is having constant battles or struggling to get along on a day to day basis?
Worrying about children and teens makes family life that much harder. And when a member of your family is suffering, everyone suffers.
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 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!
In order to help, and possibly maintain your sanity, The Wise Family team compiled some excellent resources to utilize during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
