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.

Virginia Satir

It’s easy in our very busy world to go days without really connecting with our kids and teens, as we go from carpool to work to carpool to sports to dinner to bedtime to collapse.

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!

As we head into a new school year, the familiar feelings of anxiety, nervousness and anticipation are settling in. However, going into the 2020-2021 school year looks a lot different for us amidst a pandemic. Feelings are certainly heightened as we head into uncharted waters in the coming months. Parents may be feeling extra pressure with the increased role they will be playing in their child’s education from home. Teachers are adapting to new ways of teaching and connecting with their students. Employers are adapting to employees working from home and balancing family responsibilities. How does one juggle so many hats and do them all efficiently?

Just know that you are not alone.
