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!
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.
“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
We read through your website from start to finish and were so impressed by your extensive credentials and training but, the real reason why we want to work with you is your clear enthusiasm for children and families and the wisdom and deep love you share for both!— Mom of 12-year-old child with special needs
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
