As children and adolescents are continually growing and changing, so are the needs of developing social skills and emotional intelligence that are crucial and necessary to lead happy and healthy lives. In therapy, children and adolescents can talk about whatever issues they are facing. They can also learn ways to manage their emotions and practice ways to engage with the world in a safe and collaborative space, in which all of their feelings and emotions are welcomed in the room.
Parenting is one of the most difficult, challenging, as well as rewarding aspects of a person's life. I am also a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator, which promotes healthy communication, boundaries and autonomy between all family members and teaches valuable social and life skills. Sometimes parents can feel overwhelmed in trying to attend to their child / adolescent's daily needs. Consequently, parents may find therapy particularly helpful when faced with a challenging situation or behavioral concern.
