You may find that you have a hard time connecting with your child.

Your family interactions may result in yelling and avoiding each other more than you would like. You may feel distant from your child as you struggle to understand what they are going through. You just want your child to be happy again, but you don’t know how to fix it.

Many children and teens experience anxiety or depression. Parents often struggle to know where these intense emotions are coming from. We can work with your child to help him/her overcome these problems.

Childhood mental health problems occur with many children and adolescents during the span of childhood.

They may look like isolation, anger outbursts, emotional meltdowns, and poor relationships with parents and peers. If not treated, emotional disorders may get worse over time, and more difficult to resolve. The symptoms of depression and anxiety that are common in teen mental health problems, are not just “normal” teenage behavior. Parents and teachers may be concerned, but are not quite sure if what they are seeing is normal with younger generations, particularly in the midst of a pandemic.
