You may find that your child’s behaviors and emotional meltdowns are problematic at school and home, and they may even create disagreements between you and your spouse.

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. Others may notice that you are tired, and you may even believe that others think you are a bad parent. You want to find someone you can go to for help who will understand your struggle and see your child for all the potential they have within.

Many parents have these common experiences. Parents often struggle to know where these behaviors and emotions are coming from. We can work with you and your child to help you overcome these problems.

Behavior problems occur with many children during the span of childhood. They may look like anger outbursts, emotional meltdowns over small things, and poor relationships with peers. Sometimes a child may behave in ways that are alarming to us or their teachers, leaving us thinking that we don’t know what to do next. These behaviors, if not treated, can worsen over time, and may result in disciplinary actions at home and school, school removal, lowered support system, and strained relationships.
