Real skills for kids
Children often need help dealing with stressors in their daily life. During
the school, year kids experience stressors related to homework, test
anxiety, bulling, peer pressure, and family issues.
Many kids may have a difficult time identifying and discussing their
emotions related to family matters, peers, or school. As a psychologist, I
have worked with many children dealing with these difficulties. Some
situations become even more complex when major change or transitions impact
a family or child. Some of these life changing events may pertain to
divorce, a move, serious illness, or a trauma.
With me, kids have learned to identify and express what is happening
internally for them. We engage in fun techniques where they learn to master
their problems. Kids have developed problem-solving, social, and
self-management skills that help them and their families cope with anxiety,
emotional, and behavioral difficulties.
I act as part of your child's support system as well as the families. I work
closely with the family during the session as well as during the week.
Parents update me during the week on their child's functioning.
I provide your kids with the important life skills that enhance their
development and that generalize to all aspects of their life.
