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!
Typically June marks the beginning of summer and the end of another school year. Camps for kids, swimming in community pools, family vacations, county fairs and that wonderful feeling of feet sunk in a hot sandy beach are amongst the pleasures enjoyed of summers.
In an instance, everything suddenly was different. The pandemic and COVID-19 changed everything. Adjusted (somewhat) parents around the world have come to accept – the unprecedented time is not going away. What’s next?
“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
She has been a tremendous help with family issues and getting our children organized for success in life. Highly recommend her.— Mom of three young adults ages 20 – 24
“Amy talks about moving children from being externally-driven to internally-driven…and she helps you get there!”— Parent of 15-year-old daughter
